After completing Watercolour Three, Watercolour Four is the next step towards
artistic independence.

About the course:
Watercolour Four is designed to equip students with the skills necessary to direct
their own work. Working on two set projects over four weeks you will be given clear guidelines regarding process but have plenty of scope to follow your own creative path. We will look at the elements to be considered when creating a project and how to go about organising structure and composition and you will use your experience from the previous Watercolour Series to choose your own palette and techniques.
Our aim will be to complete two artworks and finish the course with skills and
confidence to go on and develop your own projects.

  • Dates/Days:  15 October - 12 November 2024
  • Times: Tuesdays, 1.30pm - 4.30pm 
  • Venue: NatureArt Lab Studio, Workspace A, M16 Artspace, 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith, Canberra

Learning outcomes:
- An understanding of the elements necessary to create a cohesive project.
- Revision of the importance of value, structure, focal point and contrast in relation to
successful composition.
- Confidence choosing colour palettes and techniques and experience sourcing
reference material.

Suitable for students 16+ who have completed Watercolour One, Two and Three or
who are experienced watercolourists.
