These weekly classes are very informal, but very informative.
If you have ever wanted to paint in watercolour but didn't know where to start, consider yourself a beginner in need of guidance or are more experienced and looking for fresh inspiration, these classes may be just what you are looking for.
About the Classes
You are welcome to join us, whatever your ability level. You will find yourself painting alongside people of all abilities, from beginners to more experienced watercolourists.
During the classes you will learn through exercises, demonstrations and practice. Most of the time you will be working on your own ideas, as your enthusiasm for your subject matter will encourage you as you learn. At other times you will join with the group in a 'tutor led' session, when you will learn and practice painting techniques.
Your fee includes your tuition, and tea and coffee. You will need to bring along your own materials, and a mug! Oh, and a sense of humour - these classes are lots of fun!
At Ivybridge Community College you will be in one of the art rooms, which not only provides great facilities, but is also a constant source of inspiration due to the high quality of art displayed in the department.
At Harbour House, an arts and yoga centre, you will enjoy the creative atmosphere and the frequently changing exhibitions in the gallery on the ground floor. The vegetarian cafe on the first floor is well worth a visit!
When can I start?
Due to the informal nature of these classes you may join us at any point, even part way through a term, paying from that point.
If you would like to join us for the Spring term please contact us.
