Watercolour Classes April 2017

I’m holding my 4th set of watercolour classes at The Strand Gallery in London in late April.

The dates are from Monday the 24th to Friday the 28th of April.

Here is a small sample of some work I recently did with Winsor&Newton for their masterclass series



There are spaces for 6 people per class with two sessions running daily from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm and 2.30 pm to 4.30pm. I’ll be taking on newcomers/beginners in the morning sessions. The afternoons will be set aside for those of you who are coming back for more or think you are ready for some advanced techniques. Sessions are as follows. Intermediate 1 will apply if this is your second visit and level 2 if this is your for is for second

The lecture/demonstrations are roughly 2 hours long split into two separate halves. For beginners I’ll simply load you with as much information and techniques as I can. It’s not hands on, simply listen and learn for now.

Here are a couple of quotes from the March sessions:

“Matt’s style of demonstrating is simple and engaging. During the demonstration he showed with verbal explanation, the process of creating a simple wash and with equal ease, the more complex steps in layering, dry-brush and detail, eventually completing two paintings. Keeping numbers low, Matt’s small groups felt at ease and friendly, questions were asked throughout which were all answered clearly. I have learned much from the classes and I like to think my own painting has improved as a result: simplify, prepare, paint with confidence and decision.”  Henry Jones

“Really enjoyed the demonstration last week, it was my second visit and I have been inspired both times. I have found your clear and structured approach and explanations immensely helpful and I will look forward to attending in June.” Christine Camp
