Caroline Morrison is excited to offer a brand new beginner class in watercolours called  New Adventures in Watercolour. Each interactive two hour video session will introduce  the basic skills and techniques needed to get started in this medium and will include  colour theory, information about acquiring the best supplies without breaking the  budget, brush techniques, various washes and ways to use the paint, several  completed small paintings, and tips and tricks for the nervous newbie, especially  anyone who feels they can’t draw. You can follow along in real time, ask questions and  get feedback, or watch later with the ability to pause and repeat.
