The course will begin with Watercolour Techniques plus Charcoal. As the course progresses additional media will be introduced so art materials can be built up over time. You will be sent regular information via email for the media and theme, with advice on where to purchase additional materials prior to each project. Each project will begin with a drawing and exploring techniques to prepare you for creating the artwork for each project.

A short break will take place halfway through for 10’.
