Course Details

Learn the core techniques of watercolour to create images of flowers, trees, people and landscapes.  

Watercolour is all about control of the water in the brush, the pigment in your palette and the dampness of the paper. Only practice will guarantee good control of these elements. To make that practice fun we will use vibrant colours and make beautiful edges and washes to build up the colours.

We will paint flowers, trees, people and landscapes building up the skills each session to make a great painting.

This course is suitable for watercolour beginners and those developing their skills. 

We provide basic materials or you can bring your own watercolour paints, palette, brushes, 300gsm watercolour rough paper. 

Bring a packed lunch or explore the local Te Aro cafes.
