25th May (Half Term)
Emma is one of this area's most respected Watercolour Artists known for including gilding in her work and we are extremely happy to have her teaching at our Studio. With her Illustrative style, and easy manner, you can trust that you are in safe hands to learn the art of drawing and painting Botanical Watercolours all in just 8 weeks.
Emma will bring focus to understanding your materials, how to choose the best composition and how to master your drawing and your paints as well as your subject matter. You will have a chance to experiment with watercolour pencils, texture, colour and blending as well as getting to grips with the wild beast that is Watercolour Paint. After you've gained some confidence, you will be given the opportunity to experiment with the glorious art of gilding - literally adding gold leaf to your paintings to enhance them.

PLEASE NOTE: as of March 2020 we have had to add VAT to all our prices - to minimise this added expense for you, we have lowered our workshop and course prices before added the 20%. This means the prices are a little bit higher, but we (the school and tutor) have absorbed some of the extra cost. We apologise for the slight price increase.
