Simple Watercolours & Acrylics
An introduction to two popular mediums, this course will be split into two parts, with five weeks of Watercolour Painting followed by five weeks of Acrylic Painting. Designed for beginners, you will be given step-by-step guidance starting with the basics of looking after your materials, mixing colours and different painting techniques.

You’ll work on a range of fun and achievable painting projects during the course, guided by your tutor, allowing you to practise and grow in confidence. Useful resources will be posted online too, for you to access at home.
