Catherine Sargeant
Teaching in Italy is so exciting with many inspirational opportunities. I love enabling people to look and see before translating into paintings: the rhythms of the landscape; the textures of the stone buildings; the colours of the delicious foods, wines and more.

During the lessons I demonstrate ways to use watercolour paints freely and how to incorporate mixed media, encouraging loose vibrant paintings. I give individual tuition throughout the week, so both beginners and experienced artists can expand their painting skills. We end the week with a group exhibition (entirely voluntary).
