A day’s introduction to this beguiling and exciting medium in which you will be given sound guidance and encouragement on tackling watercolour techniques – possibly for the first time. So, if you were told at school you ’were no good at art’ or, if it’s something you always wanted to try, but never quite got around to, this is the course for you where, hopefully, the whole process will be opened up and demystified. Starting with basic washes and brushstrokes, we will progress to fledgling skies, trees and landscapes with plenty of demonstrations and individual attention throughout. Basic materials will be required.

Peter Hodge has been a professional artist for almost thirty years and is best known for his highly evocative and atmospheric watercolours of the villages and landscapes of the Cotswolds and Vale of Evesham. His paintings sell world wide as originals, limited edition prints and greetings cards.
In recent years he has diversified and now passes on his knowledge and skills in a series of art workshops in which he demonstrates and teaches a wide range of subjects and techniques, especially watercolour, sketching and mixed-media.
The workshops are informal, fun and packed with insights and helpful tips and are suitable for beginners as well as those looking to expand their artistic repertoires. He strongly believes that anyone can be taught to draw or paint and does his best to bring out the creativity in us all.
