Watercolour painting for teens

See event description for details on how to connect.

Every day, 10am to 2:30pm Monday 27 September to Tuesday 28 September

Albert Namatjira famously captured the Australian landscape in watercolours, while Monet dazzled us with his Impressionist reflections of his garden ponds in France. Be inspired by these artists and learn how to paint real and imagined landscape scenes of water using inks and washes.

This workshop will help guide you through watercolour drawing and painting techniques. Learn dry and wet methods, mixing colours and applying washes to build layered images and complex artworks. Be guided by a series of activities inspired by animals and plants to explore these materials, and help you paint in an expressive and gestural manner.

Amber’s online studio course is taught via Zoom and takes advantage of the full range of tools that this program offers. She is present in the online studio for the whole session and she responds directly to students’ questions with live demonstrations and discussions. We are also using Padlet in this course, Padlet is a web application that allows users to post information and images on a digital wall.

If you are unfamiliar with the Zoom program, some tutorial assistance is available prior to the commencement of the first session to ensure you can join in with ease and get to know the online learning environment. You will be guided in Padlet usage by your Lecturer and you can get additional tutorial help from NAS.

Class sizes are limited to a maximum of twelve students and the sessions are not recorded.
