This class is perfect for students who have either: done the Stage 1 course with Jenny before, or who KNOW the basic foundation skills of watercolour and about watercolour equipment and would like to learn more. Please do not join this class if you have had no experience learning watercolour as we do not go over the basics. The aim of this class is fun and relaxation, while learning serious stuff along the way. :) We'll start adding to your basic techniques and get you putting things together. You'll add to your colours in the 2nd half of the course, with a few more tubes, and learn important tips and tricks to add to your toolkit! Your tutor is experienced artist and teacher, Jenny Gilchrist.
Please come to class with all your equipment, and if you have any trouble obtaining it, see the Art Shop recommendations in the equipment list. More Questions? Contact Jenny at or use the contact button in the top menu.
