If you have some watercolour experience then this is the course for you. It will be based on the teaching of essential skills. You will be able to transfer these skills to any style of watercolour painting, both traditional and contemporary. You will be able to progress at your own pace.
The course is priced per 10 weeks (one term); you may find, as many learners do, that you will want to continue for more than 10 weeks; if this is the case you will be offered the opportunity to re-enrol and pay for another term.
