Experimental Watercolour

Emily Jolley

An exciting course exploring mark making, colour, texture and composition. Emily will help you to approach the medium of watercolour in different ways through playful exercises. This will give you a new range of starting points to take your work forward in class and develop future projects. You will learn new techniques, enjoy, experiment and have fun with this versatile medium.

This course is suitable for beginners as well as students who are working at an intermediate level.

There is also a morning class here.
