Wellbeing with Watercolours
Course Aims - What you will learn This course is a part of our Health and Well Being curriculum designed to provide a wide variety of techniques that enable adults to manage their mental health and well being through the learning of new skills and healthy outlets. It aims to develop and improve your confidence and artistic skills by exploring a variety of watercolour techniques to help improve your mental health and wellbeing through creative expression. It is suitable for beginners and those with some experience in art and is taught entirely online through Google Classroom. You will be taught how to use watercolours, water-based paints, and other mediums to pursue your own experimental and open-minded abstract compositions. Additionally, you will be taught to assess artwork and style and encouraged to develop your own personal style through contemporary attitudes to watercolours. Our intention with this course is to provide a safe, supported opportunity for those with an interest in watercolours, or art generally, develop their confidence by teaching them to express their creativity through a variety of projects that will encourage their experimentation and exploration within the medium. How you will be taught, and your understanding checked Your tutor will work with you to understand your comfort level at the start of the course and helping agree a learning plan for you to get the most out of this course. This course will be delivered entirely online, so interaction and lessons will be delivered via video conference calls and correspondence via Google Classroom. In class, your lessons will be delivered through a mix of whole class demonstrations, individual projects, and open discussions to encourage the sharing of ideas and communication: all supported by your tutor. Your tutor will encourage you to develop your confidence in creativity through a range of situations and provide feedback to ensure you are getting the most from the course. Progression - What you will be able to do next Following the successful completion of this course, we intend for each student to be able to maintain their improved sense of self-confidence and wellbeing and encourage them to further pursue their own creativity. Students could enrol onto another of our art courses next term and explore other mediums which will broaden their artistic knowledge and skillsets whilst developing their confidence and improving their wellbeing through learning new skills, artistic mediums and socially engaging with other likeminded students.
