WATERCOLOUR FOR BEGINNERS WORKSHOP With Stephen Yates, Sculpture by the Lakes, Saturday, 19. October 2019

This one-day watercolour course guides beginners through different painting techniques to develop new skills and ideas and, most importantly, confidence in using watercolour. Artist Stephen Yates leads the course, enabling participants to gain experience and direction and be inspired by working from still life, natural and built environment and photographs. The versatility of watercolours will be explored individually and as a group. You will start with the basics of watercolour painting, learning about dry brush, techniques to lift paint, as well as dry scratching, wet-in-wet and different washes. All aspects of achieving a successful painting at the end of the day will be covered.

Stephen Yates has been painting for more than 25 years as part of a successful 40 year teaching career in Art, Design and Technology across all sectors of education. A resident of West Dorset for over 30 years, Stephen has exhibited extensively throughout the UK including London, the Slade Arts Centre in Gillingham and both Shaftesbury and Bridport Arts Centres as well as the hugely popular biennial Dorset Art Weeks Open Studio events. In 2017 he was invited as Artist in Residence with Bega Regional Arts, New South Wales, to create a series of En Plein Air painting events along the Sapphire Coast.  

Lunch, tea and coffee is included for all students, please advise regarding dietary requirements when booking or on the booking form.
