If you’ve ever been interested in learning how to use watercolour to paint, elegant still-lifes, blooming flowers and sun-kissed landscapes, then look no further! We offer a fun, foundational watercolour course at Case Vecchie that covers all of the techniques you need to get started.
We’ll look at basic sketching methods, different brush strokes, the importance of using water in colour blending, layering, creating depth and finish up with a final painting that brings all of these techniques together. This class is not about mastering the art. Like our cooking classes, it’s about getting a feel for the medium and using the painting experience to connect with the spectacular surroundings that Case Vecchie offers. All materials including watercolour paper, brushes, sketch-pads and pencils are provided by the school. All you have to do is sign-up. We take care of the rest!

Sessions last 2 hours per day between cooking lessons at the school. With this extended course, you can spend a little more time practicing the watercolour techniques we’ve taught you.
