What the course is about

You will develop the skills you have already learned from the intermediate course where you looked at whole compositions ranging from still life to landscape. During this course you will look at producing larger scale works from the same subjects but be encouraged to take more independent responsibility in your own fine art practice. You will gain confidence in using both tablet and tubed watercolour paint materials. Take part in group discussions. Have access to one to one support. The overall aim is to help you discover and develop your abilities through a mixture of practice, discussion and demonstration techniques.
