In-person course

Watercolour by the seafront with Emily Jolley



There are different ways and angles that you can approach watercolour painting. A box of watercolours is something that many people have in their possession but may never have used. This is the time to have a go! Emily will introduce you to watercolour through traditional and experimental methods. Being on the seafront will give us the inspiration to create expressive atmospheric paintings using layers and marks with your brushes and other tools. This is a course for beginners and those who just want to explore watercolour. Emily will expertly guide you through a variety of techniques through demonstrations, introducing you to increasingly experimental techniques through the 2 days. Weather permitting, this course will take advantage of our beautiful seafront setting with outdoor painting for some of the time. This course runs on a consecutive Saturday and Sunday. Emily is a practising artist based in Brighton. She works with water-based paints to capture everyday landscaped and environments around her, working in a wide range of sizes and styles. Regularly exhibiting her work since graduating with a BA in Fine Art from Northumbria University, Emily’s work has travelled throughout Europe and as far as Canada.
