Hello and welcome to the latest Explore Colour course, Explore Shapes in Ink & Watercolour.
The course will be delivered in three modules here. Every weekday, Monday to Friday, at 9am BST, mini-projects will be released through this course portal. These will contain instructions to create the daily assignments that should be done in sequence in order to build up to the weekend art project that concludes the module. The daily projects can be done in the space of 30 to 60 minutes depending on how much exploring you want to do. The weekend projects incorporate techniques and shapes introduced throughout the previous five days to create a more comprehensive artwork. I will be doing weekly live demos on Saturdays to compliment the course material within the closed Facebook group setup for this course. Sunday is for catching up and there isn't any set work. Once the course ends, an additional two months will be available to revisit projects through the course portal.
Here's the itinerary. with daily projects released at 9am BST in the classroom portal.
