About the Event

In this five-session online watercolour painting course, you will learn all about the building blocks of watercolour, which are guaranteed to transform your skills and painting confidence. Increase your knowledge of what makes a good painting and learn how to select eye catching designs that grab attention. As well as learning all about these incredibly important building blocks, you will absorb other relevant information and skills pertaining to controlling watercolour. There will also be a student forum where you can post images and chat with your fellow participants. This is an interactive course that involves submitting your work for appraisal after each session.

Each session spans ten days, during which you can watch the video demonstration painting as many times as you like and pick up helpful tips and techniques along the way.  For each session, you will be supplied with a downloadable reference photograph for you to try out the painting for yourself. You then move onto your own self project where a similar scene or reference is supplied for you to try your own approach. If you wish, you can submit your self project painting via email for appraisal at the end of each session. This is a great way of learning that fits in with your own routine and commitments and there is no requirement to attend live sessions, so you can participate in comfort wherever you are in the world.

You will receive your coursework by email at 8am GMT at the start of each session and this will consist of full instructions, including:

  • A printable PDF worksheet with information and theory about the topic covered as well as an overview of the demonstration in pictorial form.
  • Downloadable reference photographs.
  • Link to watch, pause and replay the demonstration. *Demonstration videos are replaced after each session period, so don’t leave it too late. 
  • Instructions for a self project session to keep you focussed.
  • Written appraisal after submitting your self project.
