Get started with watercolour painting with an emphasis on play and experimentation.

This worksheet provides a basic introduction to watercolour painting, including different approaches to mixing colours. 

"I was very reticent about trying watercolour - but now I'm hooked!"
"I really enjoyed this activity, 
and it was fun to have the freedom to experiment."

Part of our Gateways into Creative Activity: a series of worksheets, videos and prompts for anyone who would like to have a go at a new artistic activity, or maybe rekindle a dormant creative interest, developed by Marion Cheung, Naz Syed, Creative Lives and Age Cymru, as part of the Unearthing Creativity project.
