A  watercolour course that ACTUALLY TEACHES!

Level 4 - is this you?


* You know all the watercolour skills and techniques and can apply them, but maybe need more practice through a workshop style course.   (if you want to learn foundation skills, enrol in Levels 1-3)
* ..But you'd like to know HOW to put them all together into beautiful paintings.

*Maybe you have done Jenny's Level 1 & 2 & 3 prior to this?

*Have done other beginner courses that taught you all the foundation & basic skills?

*Can't find a course that teaches you HOW to put your paintings together?

*Don't know how to plan a painting? or how to set one up?

*Not sure what to paint or how to go about painting it?
*Sick of just copying?
*Want to push yourself further AND CREATE full paintings with guided help so that....

*You don't mind putting 30-60 mins of setting up at home before class (thumbnail sketch, drawing up)
