Watercolour - Beginners
Instructor: Linda Ross Gallagher

We keep hearing that painting with watercolours is “difficult”.
Let’s change that concept and have fun as we discover their potential and what makes them beautiful and convenient.
In the first lesson, we will examine materials and put together our list of supplies for our toolbox, which will be used for the remainder of our course.
Creating simple art pieces, we will touch on composition, colour theory and build our vocabulary of techniques that are the foundation of all watercolour painting.

Times: 10:00am - 12:30pm
