This 4-week Teen & Adult Watercolour course is taught by local Victoria artist Emma Pyle, who guides us through art fundamentals such as line drawing, lighting, shading, value, and colour with watercolours!
Using eco-literacy principles from world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman, we encourage participants to connect to nature through art and observation.
By the end of this course you will learn fundamentals of watercolour painting, nature observational skills, and a glimpse of the world through Robert Bateman’s eyes.
At the end of the program students have the opportunity to submit their art to be put up in the NatureSketch Gallery.
Instructor will email students with finalised details a few days ahead of class.
Registration closes 5 days prior to the class starting.
