What to expect:
In this five hour workshop, you’ll learn all the basics of watercolour painting. The first half of the workshop will cover colour theory, starting with learning the nature of watercolour and building confidence in mixing colours. Next, you’ll learn different watercolour painting techniques, creating your own swatches to take home for future reference. After your lunch break, the afternoon session will be spent practicing the techniques learned in the context of your own illustration or colouring pages provided in your kit.
