Leading Online Camps for Kids
Pupils taking this course will explore different effect and techniques that can be made using watercolours. We will look at wet and dry mixing as well as painting on wet. We will look at how we can create various colours and shades as well as darker and lighter shadows and highlights. We will then be creating backgrounds and creating a landscape or city scene and then learn how to add details in our picture using finer brushes and drier paint.
Materials: A set of watercolour paints will be needed to complete this course . Pupils will need thick paper (watercolour paper if possible)- normal a4 paper will not withstand the wet paint and crinkle. Watercolour pencils can be used by paint is preferred.
