Course Outline

In this course participants will gain practical skills in a variety of watercolour techniques, as well as ideas for the planning and facilitation of Visual Arts programs in the classroom.  By creating four paintings, each based on a seasonal theme, participants will be introduced to a range of watercolour techniques including: laying down a wash, using wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry methods, overlaid wash and layering, lifting out with sponge and brush, positive and negative space, scumbling and s’grafitto salt texturing and the use of masking fluid. Emphasis will be placed on interpretation through the use of colour, tonal recession and the balance of light and dark. Understanding and mastering these basic techniques will allow participants to adapt them to their own use within the classroom over a range of primary school ages.

Completing Visual Arts: Techniques in Watercolour Painting will contribute 6 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 2.1.2, 2.2.2, and 3.1.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
