Watercolour Online Art Course
Tutored by Steven Hersey
The Watercolour Course is a Diploma Course.
For many budding artists, watercolor painting serves as the initial step once they've mastered fundamental drawing skills. All that's required are a few paint tubes, brushes, and paper. However, it's essential to embrace a systematic approach to this medium, which can be challenging and occasionally frustrating if not approached correctly. When an artist gains mastery over watercolors, the outcomes can be truly spectacular, making it one of the most gratifying and approachable artistic mediums to explore.
This written course, with tutor feedback, provides a broad approach to the medium, which we hope students will find informative and inspirational. Along with more traditional techniques you'll find suggestions and ideas that may be new to you, but that could help you realise your own inventive instincts and support you as you set out on this path.
There is opportunity to develop in a broad range of directions, from traditional landscape painting to more imaginative, illustrative or abstract work, but founded in the sound practice of observation, interpretation and the core skills for handling watercolour.
Many aspects - such as use of colour, tone, composition and the principal techniques - are looked at in depth with reference to well known 19th & 20th Century watercolour artists, such as John Singer Sargent, Edward Wesson, Philip Wilson Steer and many others. There are illustrations and diagrams throughout to clarify points being made, clear step-by-step demonstrations, and useful exercises to practise with.
There are seven assignments to be submitted to your tutor, distributed at intervals throughout the course. Your friendly and supportive tutor will give detailed help and advice on how to improve your artwork.
Whether you are an absolute beginner or someone who has more experience, like all London Art College courses, the program is flexible, with no set deadlines for the submission of coursework. This fun course is suitable for students of all levels with personalised tutor feedback.
If you want to develop as a watercolour artist, this is the course for you.
Henri Matisse... "One note is simply a colour. Two notes make a chord and life".The course is typically designed to span around 1 year, with the flexibility of a two-year completion period offered by the college. This course is open to students of all backgrounds and experience levels."
Students are able to upload their artwork to the 'The Art Room' on our website. Each student is given a unique username and password on enrolment for their own private area in The Art Room.
Students can upload their artwork for the tutor to collect and critique. The tutor will then upload feedback for the student to download. If you do not have facilities to upload your artwork, you can mail your artwork to the tutors centre and receive your artwork back with your critique.
It is essential you label all packages/artwork with your student number.
All our courses are written to be your comprehensive guide into each of their subject matters. We understand that students appreciate clarification about various aspects of their work from a course tutor, whom provide reassurance that techniques are put into practice effectively.
Each courses has its own dedicated Tutor. The tutor keeps the course up to date and relevant to today's students. They are available to the individual student for advice and encouragement. Each course has regular exercises and assignments that are constructed in such a way as to give the student the opportunity to practice the techniques learnt on the course and to test themselves as they go along. Students are encouraged to submit the assignment work to the college for the tutor to critique.
Coursework can be submitted online, as digital photographs, in your individual art room account and the tutor will upload their critique for you to download and retain forever.
On many courses the assignment work may be suitable for inclusion in a student's Portfolio of Work that could be very useful later. The college will use the assignments submitted as the basis for your award of a diploma.
On successful completion of this course you will have studied new skills and gained knowledge for your own enjoyment and development.
