We believe everyone can paint, you just need to be shown how. Whether you are on your own, a couple or in a group, you will have fun learning to paint and meeting new friends on this fantastic 1 day course in sunny Broadstairs Kent!

​The art course is for beginners or intermediates mainly in watercolour painting. So if you want to discover or rediscover a passion in painting this course is for you. We do not judge we just help and want you to have fun, so please don't feel intimidated, you are not on your own.

You will be shown from scratch how to stretch paper, apply paint, mix colour and all watercolour techniques to get you started. For improvers we will help you to expand your knowledge and introduce you to new ideas, tips and techniques.

All the art materials you need will be provided for the weekend (other mediums bring your own we can help advise with any medium).
There will be various step by step demonstrations and individual tuition throughout the course. You should complete two to three finished paintings.

We have laid out the itinerary for indoors especially for the winter, but if the weather is good in spring and summer we will go outside and paint in the lovely area for some of the time. We have plenty of beaches and scenic views to inspire you.

We promise you will turn out paintings from the first lesson and we know you will be hooked from there on in, even if you have never painted before. We run a friendly and very relaxed class, so don’t be shy, come and join us for a wonderful packed weekend full of fun.
If you would like to paint in any other medium let us know.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
