Would you like to start painting in watercolours? Perhaps you simply have no idea know where to start or even which brush you should use, let alone any idea what type of paper you should be painting on or how to apply the paint! If that set of watercolours your kids bought you for Xmas is still in the drawer with the cellophane wrapper on or you haven't painted since school then this course will get you started. The first hour will be spent looking at the materials you need and how to prepare your paper like the professionals do. The second hour will be spent practicing basic techniques and during the third hour we will start you off on your new hobby with a go at some simple painting from photographic images.
SUITABLE FOR: The out of practice, the terrified and the 'I have no idea where to start!' By the end of the session you will have a relaxing and enjoyable new hobby.
