Led by Colchester Art Society artist Karenza Jackson, you will be introduced to some of the basics of watercolour through landscape painting. Each week a new technique or special effect will be demonstrated by the artist and practiced by the group. These techniques will enable you to progress your skills, and create a more contemporary look within your work. This course is a great opportunity to experiment with watercolour and build up a collection of styles and approaches.

Suitable for all abilities, materials provided.
