Watercolour Illustration - 10 weeks

Watercolour Illustration - 10 weeks


This course covers watercolour painting techniques in an illustration context. Teens will learn to bring their drawings to life with a better understanding of colour, contrast, and form. They will also gain familiarity with the watercolour medium.

We will do some studies and observational work, as well as more stylized and expressive pieces. Students are encouraged to strengthen their painting skills, and given freedom to explore the styles and subjects that they are interested in.

Beginners and intermediate artists are all welcome! All supplies are included.
