As part of the Craft Cube Festival 2017 join Stefan Gevers in the 1- Day Contemporary Watercolour workshop. Don't be intimidated by watercolour and patterns any longer! Watercolour is a fun and flexible medium with many contemporary applications. Learn how to use the materials on their own and in creative ways with other materials. You will learn the process of creating a watercolour painting/illustration and explore the use of the watercolour palette - which brushes, how much water and what washes to start with, as well as learning new techniques using other mediums. Watercolour is a fantastic medium creating surprising unexpected results. You will see how chance and accident can be very useful. Several works will be completed during the classes. We will use patterns, abstract compositions and your own creative ideas to teach you the basic and advanced skills to create your own paintings at home. The step-by-step approach of the course creates a relaxed environment with no pressure and surprising results in the artist studio. This workshop is suitable for the absolute beginner as well students with more experience. You can take your on materials, rent for the day or purchase a starter pack. Stefan Gevers is a Dutch/Australian award winning artist who specialises in watercolour. He has been teaching since 2009, nationally and Internationally with excellent student feedback. He has also conducted Drawing Intensives and classes at CAE and Tafe.
