Improve your watercolour techniques in a fun and creative way...

Your artist tutor Claudia Myatt will guide you through the qualities and characteristics of watercolour paints, papers and brushes, before settling into experimenting with various watercolour techniques.

Part of the day will involve colour mixing with valuable guidance to ‘keep off the mud’!

Water colour paints are portable and fast drying, perfect for getting out and about, painting from life and colour washes over sketches.  By the end of this one-day workshop you should feel confident and excited about using watercolours.

These workshops take place in Art Safari’s riverside studio, where there is a wealth of material to be seen from the balcony and around the quayside.

There will be plenty of tea, coffee, water, fruit and biscuits available throughout the day.  Lunch is an hour, please bring your own packed lunch or pop into one of the many cafes in Woodbridge.

To help you prepare we will send you a short list of suggested art materials to bring with you.
