What will I paint?
At Tracey Bengeyfield Art you have the opportunity to study a wide variety of subject themes, in which you will learn to use a broad range of techniques. On some occasions you will also add other media to you watercolour. This could include ink, pastel, tissue paper, colour pencils or graphite. Each different type of media will bring something new to your work and will help you to stay motivated and give you ideas on how to develop your own style. The best thing about the Online Watercolour School is that you get to pick which tutorials you want to do! Why not take 5 minutes to take a look at the tutorials currently available and see which one you would like to try first!
Why should I choose watercolour classes with Tracey Bengeyfield Art?
Some watercolour tutors are professional artists who also teach, the difference at Tracey Bengeyfield Art
is that your tutor is a trained, professional teacher who also happens to be an artist.
You might think that the difference is just semantics! However, being trained to teach gives the ability to understand how people learn. It gives the knowledge of how to break down a task into accessible, achievable tasks ~ making the final outcome more attainable. I gained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education back in 1999 and have been teaching art ever since!
Trained teachers also have the ability to adapt their knowledge to make it easier for you to understand something, no matter what type of learner you are. You may not know this, but there are many different types of learners! Some people will find it easier to learn by listening to instruction, some by reading instructions, others by watching a demonstration and some by just having a go themselves (there are others too). Hopefully at Tracey Bengeyfield Art you will find the right combination of teaching and learning that suits you.
Hi! If you would like to find out a little more about me ~ just click the button! Don't forget you can also keep up to date with what I'm up to if you check out the blog or if you're a fan of Instagram you can see all the latest news and stories there!
So what's included?
a reference photograph
a PDF line drawing
a copy of the finished painting
a step-by-step worksheet
real time videos
During your subscription period, you will have access to EVERY project. This means you can experiment with different styles and methods of painting which will build your confidence and give you a wide knowledge of techniques.
But I can't draw!
Can’t draw or just want to get on and paint? No worries! All tutorials come with a simple line drawing which you can download and resize, ready to trace onto your watercolour paper.
However, if you do have the time, I would recommend that you try drawing freehand rather than tracing. Being able to sketch and draw will be a real asset to your creative journey long term. It will enhance your observation skills and allow you to really get to know your subject ~ this will make painting it easier.
All members also get access to the forum. This is a friendly, welcoming area where you can share your work and see what others have been up to. Being part of this online community brings an extra dimension to the Online Watercolour school ~ so you won't just learn from me, but from the other members too!
Students need to purchase their own equipment. Take a look at the equipment list for more details. A good place to start is the SAA an online art supplier and all round champion of all things creative.
If you don’t think you have the discipline to get down to painting with the online school, if you’re local, why not see if there are spaces at my weekly classes. Take a look at the Venue or Get in touch using the button.
