Are you ready to start your watercolour journey?
Have you every wanted to learn to paint and draw? Do you already love watercolour painting? Or are you looking to start a new hobby or interest?
You've come to the right place! At Tracey Bengeyfield Art you can learn to paint using the beautiful medium of watercolour. Watercolour is such a versatile medium ~ it can be soft and ethereal or punchy and full of vitality. It's this quality that keeps me experimenting and learning everyday! I hope that through my classes, you too will enjoy learning and creating in a relaxed, friendly environment. I believe that even if you find drawing and painting a challenge, you will improve within a structured and creative course just by embracing and enjoying the process.

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. Please note the above images are themes which the physical classes have previously studied and are not necessarily available as videos for the Online Watercolour course which is new to 2020.
Why should you 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.
