Watercolour and Drawing Challenge : David Lewry

Based on a similar format to the TV series Watercolour Challenge, students will be given a series of different topics throughout the year which they are free to interpret in their own way using watercolour or drawing media. Topics will be varied and stimulating and students will be encouraged to approach them as creatively as possible. The Tutor will be available to offer practical advice on how to develop individual ideas and techniques.
