Tasmanian Art Retreat- 4 Days 3nights
JUNE 7th 10am – 10th 4pm (2018)
Art Learning outline:
This 4 day art retreat is aimed at complete beginners or those who have some drawing and painting experience. This class will teach you the practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting, whether you want to use this medium for illustrative work, typography or fine art painting.
Students will learn about the specific properties of watercolour paint, and develop practical skills and techniques in paint application, brush-work, colour mixing, rendering light and shade, tonal value, and design in watercolour painting.
By the end of the class, students will have completed many of their own watercolour paintings, and be able to take their new skills to continue developing in their own style, in this particular medium.
