REVIEW:
‘I loved the fact that your lessons were truly created with basics in mind! I have been painting on my own, or with some occasional lessons for a few years. I now feel more confident with the fundamentals which I had not been sure of before. thank you’ Lorraine Sargent
If you’ve always wanted to paint with watercolor paints just do not know where to start. This course is for YOU.
This may be mostly suitable for adults.
Why? Because as adults you collect limiting beliefs about what you can and can’t do. Painting might be one of them.
This is a ‘learn through play’ course and is very basic  You will simply learn how to get the paint from the box via the brush and onto the paper.
You will paint an apple three times but in different ways so that you can escape the draw and colour in method you learnt as a child.
If you want to make a start to paint without feeling intimidated by the paints, the process or the expectations. By simply playing with your paints, coloring in simple shapes your understanding will grow as will your confidence.
DO NOT take this course if you need a formal structure and are not prepared to lean through play. I will not talk about the names of colours, colour mixing, composition or drawing. It is just to get you started.
If you have already been painting with watercolors, this course is not for you.

Why choose one of my courses?
•Because, as a self taught artist I understand how a lot of people feel about their creative work, sometimes anxious, sometimes overwhelmed and often that it’s not ‘good enough’. I will hold your hand as you overcome these fears as I offer a friendly, relaxed and sensitive teaching style.
I also have years of experience of teaching people of all levels both in person and via the internet.
Do one of my courses and you will feel as if I am in the room with you every step of the way.
Enjoy your painting, love Nicola

This is what one student posted in her blog : – ‘I was so surprised to find that she (Nicola) started very simply, just playing with water and unmixed colors of paint. Slowly a beautiful patchwork of designs appeared on her page. Where boundaries and boundaries in the art have been blurred, she went to a pen and neatened up. Something else to add to the designs and to add some swirls and triangles to the dried paint. With growing excitement I realized that this project was well within my comfort zone. ‘

Professional Artist, Teacher and Creative Entrepreneur
    Why choose one of my courses?        Because, as a self taught artist I understand how a lot of people feel about their creative work, sometimes anxious, sometimes overwhelmed and often that it’s not ‘good enough’.    Well I will hold your hand as you overcome these fears as I offer a friendly, relaxed and sensitive teaching style.      Do one of my courses and you will feel as if I am in the room with you every step of the way.      Here’s a bit about me.      I originally trained as a graphic artist, and then followed a different career path working in the national media, travel and public relations in both London and Paris.              After sometime I returned to my creative roots full time, so to speak, and became a full time artist, teacher and creative entrepreneur.              The artist bit means I have worked in a variety of media, but am currently splashing about with watercolours. I love the magic they make when the pigments play with the water. And if you let them do their own thing, it’s even better.              I have also painted murals in a child’s bedroom or around a swimming pool, covering everything from fairies to Tuscan views. Painted furniture with decorative effects and designs and given walls specialist paint effects and stencils. All fun stuff for the discerning home owner              The teaching bit involved me teaching a ‘Decorative Paint Effects’ section of an interior design certificate course at Kidderminster College, Worcestershire, UK. Here they studied paint effects for walls and furniture, designing and cutting stencils, Period design elements and produced sample boards.              Then continuing the theme of teaching I have also tutored on many private workshops in the above subjects plus decoupage, gilding and trompe l’oeil (trick the eye painting).              Now, installed in the south of France I continue with all of the above but adding on-line courses to my creative portfolio. Flexibility is the name of the game in today’s world              I have exhibited widely in the area.              Recently I was invited to plan and teach a creative summer school, offering a variety of artistic subjects, at one of the leading camping venues in the area. So, you never know some of these subjects might pop up as one of my courses on Udemy              I have had work featured in a national ‘lifestyle’ magazine and on BBC Radio 4 and Central TV in the UK
