Course Description

Watercolour Painting

This course will take place online via Zoom.


This is a Zoom course using blended learning methods, for example, short videos, shared screens and breakout rooms for small group work.


The course is suitable for Beginners with gradual and complete instructions every step of the way for each activity/project. The course will cover practices in drawing and painting with watercolour. You will be sent regular information via email, prior to each project. Each week we will be exploring techniques and theme in drawing and painting for watercolour.


The Online Zoom Classes begin with ‘greetings and introductions’ sometimes followed by a short pre-made demonstration video for the sessions. The Zoom session will continue with step-by-step instructions, to be followed by you. There will be time to create and reflect on your progress, with the tutor and each other. A short break will take place halfway through for 10mins, which will give you time to chat with each other and grab a cupper. Zoom sessions will be recorded for you to revisit with a private link to YouTube for everyone who attends the session. You will be given the option to turn off your video prior to recording if you do not wish to be recorded. Demonstration videos are made to accompany the Zoom sessions and are available as a permanent resource from the tutor’s YouTube channel and Website pages. You will be provided a ZOOM Invitations and resources links to the website and YouTube channel in an introduction emails prior to the beginning of the course.
