Tutor – Emma Burleigh 

Fridays, 10.30am - 3.30pm | 3 weeks 

Starts Friday 11 June 2021  

This class will be taking place on Zoom and a selection of materials will be provided by post in advance as outlined below.*

To paint from imagination can feel a little daunting. This course will uncover your creative voice through supportive and relaxing exercises designed to develop your confidence to paint expressively and intuitively. Using the jewel-like colours and evocative qualities of watercolour, explore memories, moods, dreams and visions in this luminous medium. Technical skills will be taught, but the emphasis is on art-making as a joyful practice that brings insight and wellbeing. For those who have previously attended this course, there will be development activities.

 *If class is booked after 01/06/21 the materials may not arrive in time for the first class
