This four-week course led by Sarah L Goy takes a relaxed, playful, and supportive approach to exploring the calming benefits of Watercolour painting. You will be introduced to simple water colour techniques and different experimental styles of painting, explore the joy of colour, colour mixing, and how feelings can be expressed through patterns, washes and mark making. 


Each week will be focused on a colour, we will learn what colour means to each of us as we chat and paint together creating abstract watercolour artworks inspired by our colour of the week.  

These sessions are suitable for absolute beginners, to give you the confidence in using watercolour and encourage experimentation to express your feelings whilst enjoying the process of painting. It may also inspire you to go on and do further art courses.
