The Oxford Summer School 2017, at the Oxford Academy, Littlemore, Oxford.

Experiment and move on with watercolour wherever you're starting from, whether beginner, rusty returner or experienced painter. The course is good for loosening up and painting in a more abstract or contemporary direction, supported by a mix of structured exercises, independent work, and individual feedback.

Using the school buildings and immediate environment as starting points, you'll learn how to find interesting compositions in everyday subject matter, and to develop a body of finished works in glowing watercolour.

There will be short technical demonstrations about working from observation towards abstraction, maximising colour impact, and watercolour's unique qualities and handling.

Cost: £205, plus £20 for materials.

The tutor, Ella Clocksin, will provide essential artists' quality watercolour and paper at a cost of £20 for use during the week, which ensures everyone is using good quality materials.
