Watercolour taster course

Come and try watercolour and see if it is the right medium for you.

With the materials included, the only cost is the course. Buying good quality painting materials can be quite expensive. So, finding out if you like the medium, before you make that investment, makes sense.

If you have tried drawing and feel you would like to move on to painting, this short course will offer a solid grounding in the basics of how to handle watercolour.

You don’t need to have learnt to draw before you try painting. It’s a fun and absorbing pastime whatever your level of skill.
