The focus is to create your own style, learning techniques, composition and balance, using different exercises. This medium is mainly watercolour but you can use your acrylics as the exercises remain the same. The classes are always evolving and changing direction according to the needs of the class (positive critiques only).
Both beginners and intermediate levels are welcome.
