Simple activities are structured to gradually expand students’ repertoire of techniques and knowledge of how to manipulate watercolour paint. This includes colour mixing, brush control and planning a composition. Each lesson starts with a warmer and is followed by a main activity based around a theme. Themes include still life, floral and landscape subjects. Min 5 / Max 8
