Painting with Watercolous & Gouache - a Beginners Course

Painting with Watercolous & Gouache - a Beginners Course

About the Course

Learn the key techniques to creating beautiful artwork using watercolours and gouache with local artist and teacher, Christina Rossman. While this course is focusing on those students who are new to this medium, it will also be a very beneficial day for those who need a refresher.

This online course has been designed to be as interactive as a face to face session. We have limited the number of participants to 10, so that your tutor can spend time with you each individually. We will be using the zoom format to encourage interaction between the students as well.

During the morning 2 hour session you will discuss the best ways to use both watercolour and gouache. This will be achieved through live demonstrations and a few short videos. Your tutor will be able to see you and your work throughout so that she can advise and comment on your progress.

There will then be a one hour lunch break. Christina has found , through teaching previous online courses, that this break is an important way to refresh your creative juices.

The afternoon 2 hour session will build on the techniques learned in the morning.

At the end of this day you will be able to effectively use both watercolour and gouache to create images of your own. You will have discovered various techniques that are vital when developing your painting skills.

Christina is a professional painter, graphic designer/illustrator and photographer with a Danish background. She can always be found working with a sketchbook using pencil, ink & watercolour to capture moments, ideas and details.
