Simple exercises, tips and techniques in watercolour for complete beginners or improvers

Have you ever wanted to try watercolour painting but not sure where to begin, or given it a go and decided that it’s a beast that can’t be controlled? Come along to our friendly and relaxed drop-in Watercolour Club where artist & tutor Shelley Morrow will guide you through using watercolours in our dedicated studio space. You can book in advance or arrive on the day and pay by card at the studio.

What you need to bring

Improvers are welcome to bring their own paints and projects to work on with support from Shelley – if you’re a complete beginner you can turn up empty handed and use the materials we provide while Shelley will set you some simple starting exercises. We have tables, chairs & easels to work at in the studio.

Getting to the studio

Approach New England House from the New England Street side of the building and walk up to the locked blue double doors next to the sign for the ‘Building Manager’s Office’. Wait to be let in or call the number on the door for entry – the studio is on level 5, Unit 1 South, just knock and walk in. There is parking at London Road car park, Elder Place & Trafalgar St car parks; Brighton station is a 5 minute walk from the studio.
