Watercolour Course 11th and 12th May, Bewdley, Worcs.
Before I became a full time artist, I was a teacher working with community groups and young people. I love the warm, friendly atmosphere of a workshop and these small classes will be both fun and informative. If you’re interested in getting to grips with watercolour, then this is the course for you! Each student will go home with a watercolour piece to be proud of!
Find out how to make colours pop on this weekend course in the beautiful Georgian, riverside town of Bewdley, Worcestershire. If you're looking to take your artwork to the next level, this course is appropriate for all levels of artists, from hobbyists to professionals. Taught in the warm and welcoming atmosphere of Bewdley Museum.
Lunch is provided on both dates and as well as an evening meal on Saturday 11th May for those wishing to partake.
