Kids art classes

Watercolour for teenagers
2020 January 20, SGSCC Jannali

Learn the basics of watercolour painting: watercolour washes, cool and warm colour mixing, types of watercolour brushes, paper and paint. Learn how to paint transparently and easily in watercolour. This is a class for beginners to explore basic watercolour painting techniques in a step by step class. No painting experience necessary.
Using watercolour tubes (or watercolour pans if you prefer), we will start with the four basic watercolour techniques using simple exercises. Over these swatches, we will glaze layers of beautiful transparent colour. We will explore all the states of watercolour paint (Marion will show you these). We will also explore the many uses of masking fluid and how it helps to create translucent paintings. After these basic techniques, we will let loose and paint subjects that encourage the paint to flow.
