 This course is designed to help you get your camera off the automatic setting. The course explores what all the little icons in your camera menu mean and how you can use them to capture your best photos. Once the class is comfortable with how to use their cameras we move to discussing common photography mistakes (and how to avoid making them), composition and tips and tricks on how to get more creative images.

Beginner Watercolor

This class will introduce beginners to the way watercolour painting works and how you can be successful in this fascinating and rewarding art form.

By introducing various brushes and brush strokes, you will practice manipulating paint, blooms and blends, soft and hard edges, using wet and dry techniques on wet and dry paper.

 Based on the on a "split primary" theory, you will learn about colour temperature by creating your own colour wheel for personal reference. This will help you to avoid "mixing mis-haps" and learn how to successfully create vivid secondaries and subtle tertiary colours using a very simple, limited palette.

As you grow in confidence with this knowledge and these skills, instructorJanet Warnes will guide you step-by-step through demonstrations of compositions of fruits and florals, also wildlife studies and a variety of landscapes and seascapes.
