Watercolor Painting (13:00 - 17:00), 1500 CZK
"The painter must know at first that the truth is hidden in subtlety."
As part of the Watercolor Painting Course, we will learn about watercolor painting techniques, showcase the possibilities that this kind of painting offers, how to prepare the paper before painting, and how to adjust the resultant painting. Watercolor is often being considered as the "most difficult" painting technique, as it does not offer much space for repairs, such as oil painting. With us, however, you can easily handle the watercolor painting and you do not have to worry about it. Painting course is held in the creative atmosphere of the art studio, on warmer days we will go to paint into the Riegrovy sady, where we will study space and colorfulness of the landscape.
