Lernziele / Kompetenzen
  • Knowledge about materials: binders (gum), pigments, and support materials (paper, textiles)
  • Manufacturing watercolours
  • Examination of painting materiel, gaining experiences in layering and "alla prima" painting
  • Using technical reference works and catalogues of suppliers
InhalteWatercolouring is one of the most ancient painting techniques in art history and one of the most difficult as every trace remains visible and hence every "mistake".
The practical and theoretical knowledge about binders, pigments, and support material in watercolouring you gain in this module are useful for every type of painting practice.
At the end of the module, we will present the results in an exhibition.

Vera Marke (*1972) is an artist, who studied at the ZHDK, and specializes in questions of conceptual painting in relation to technical implementation.
