Watercolour Workshop at the Cook Museum

By Published October 09, 2017

BUDDING artists have a chance to find out about the wonder of watercolour at a special class this week.

Talented fine artist Andy Broderick will be holding a one-day watercolour masterclass at the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum on Friday, October 13.

The workshop is aimed at giving participants a real insight into the skills and techniques involved in watercolour painting.

There are opportunities to go into the museum’s galleries and see some of the original works of Sydney Parkinson on loan from the Natural History Museum.

There’s also inspiration to be found in the prints of other artists who accompanied Captain Cook around the globe.

Participants will also be able to access the brand new Australian Walkabout gallery and have opportunities to use some of the brand new taxidermy on display to inspire their own artwork.

Museums Access Officer Jenny Phillips said: “Andy is the perfect artist to work with to begin and extend your watercolour skills within the museum as he has spent time in Australia himself drawing the wildlife he saw while he was out there,

“The class is aimed at adults who want to try something different in a relaxed and friendly setting.”

  • The watercolour class costs £40 per person or £35 with an Explorer Pass.

All materials, as well as tea, coffee, refreshments and lunch will be provided.

  • If you are interested in ideas, radio is way more pure than television. You’re not distracted by somebody’s nose or hair or posture. You can really see how someone thinks and penetrate to the essence of who that person is. – Terry Gross
