More Watercolour

Level: Intermediate

Students will be presented with a more in-depth coverage of the basic watercolour theories and techniques that they learned in beginners classes. This class is a re-enforcement of basics with some new info and techniques to help students hone their skills.  In-class demonstrations, discussions, critiques and hands on assignments will guide the student to developing their own style with this magical medium.

Mondays, September 24 to December 10 (no class October 8 & November 12)    6:30pm-9:30pm (10 classes)

Members $300   Non Members $315
