Important Notices – Watercolour (Self Directed)




What will happen during the Run-through?


The Run-through is simply a suggested timetable for working through the lessons.


Lesson 1 – Wednesday 12 Sept

Lesson 2 – Wednesday 19 Sept

Review 1 – Wednesday 26 Sept

Lesson 3 – Wednesday 3 Oct

Lesson 4 – Wednesday 10 Oct

Review 2 – Wednesday 17 Oct


During the scheduled week for each lesson I will be in the classroom at some point each day (Monday – Saturday) looking at the work uploaded, answering questions and if necessary updating the feedback section.


Please note: I will not be commenting on individual homework.


Can I participate even though I am in a different time zone to Sydney, Australia?


Yes! There is no live component, so you can log into the classroom at any time to view the lessons, ask questions and/or upload your work.

Is there anything I need to do before the Run-through starts?

The only requirement is to have completed the intro lessons so that you have your supplies ready to start Lesson 1. But if you already have your own watercolour kit you can jump straight into the lessons.

I prefer to work at my own pace, can I do that?

Yes, of course! This timetable is totally optional and you can work through the lessons whenever it suits you.

Please note: During the Run-through period my focus for each week will be answering questions and looking at work for the specified Lesson. If you ask questions about other lessons I will attempt to respond to them within 2-3 days.


What happens after the Run-through finishes?

If you get behind during the 6 week period of the Run-through, you can finish off the lessons at any time.

The classroom will become quieter but I expect that there will always be some people working through the lessons at any time. And yes, you have lifetime access so you can come back to the lessons whenever you want.

After mid-October I will be keeping a general eye on the classroom on an ongoing basis. However as I have an overseas trip from mid October until mid November my availability will be limited during this period.


I hope you will join us!

If it works with your schedule, I hope you will join us for this Run-through. I’m really excited about it!

This is a one-off special event to celebrate the opening up of the course and I know will it generate a lot of buzz and inspiration for anyone who posts and interacts in the classroom.

But regardless of whether you join us or not…

I really hope that you enjoy the course and that you see real improvement in your watercolour sketching!
