Learn to paint with the tricky medium of watercolour in this relaxed and welcoming class. We'll cover different techniques for painting with watercolour and also basic drawing skills like observing shapes, adding depth, showing distance, and using light and dark shades. These skills will help you become a better watercolour artist.

We'll paint a variety of subjects in the class from flowers, to landscapes and urban sketches. If you're new to watercolour, you'll get step-by-step guidance and demonstrations to help you gain confidence each week. If you already have some experience, you'll be challenged with new techniques to expand your skills. You'll also explore ways to be creative and bold in your artwork and learn how to make your watercolours look clear and vibrant. It's a short course that's all about enjoying painting with watercolours!

Saba Manesh is a watercolour artist, originally from Iran who trained in watercolours as part of her degree in Urban Design. "Watercolour is my passion, and each painting tells a story of places I've explored and tried to depict emotions I've felt and the connection I have with the world around me as an artist and landscape architecture. My art is a reflection of the seasons, the landscapes, and the beauty that exists everywhere either in a landscape or a bunch of flowers."

What to expect

Students will work across a range of subject matter. Beginners will be guided with instruction and demonstrations and build confidence week by week. Students with prior watercolour experience will be encouraged to broaden their skills with new challenges. Explore ways to be expressive and adventurous in your work and learn how to keep watercolours transparent and bright in this short course.
