The Joy of Watercolour: A Playful Approach

The Joy of Watercolour: A Playful Approach

This is a 2-day workshop.  Classes run 9-4pm with lunch included.

Here is a great opportunity to enroll in an activity that is both fun and rewarding.  Enjoy a relaxed and playful approach to watercolour, working small to start.  Participants come away with foundational skills to ignite the passion to pursue the love of watercolour painting and art.

This class is designed to give students a firm understanding of basic art principles including colour, value, design concepts and perspective.  Students will learn techniques through a variety of demonstrations, lectures, and personal instruction.

Students move forward quickly in the spirit of fun and experimentation. The goal is to increase awareness of the  opportunities to paint plein air as one learns to compose, plan and execute paintings in the field. Nothing surpasses the subtle nuances and observations that come with painting from life.

Watercolour painting is a wonderful means to express one’s individual creative spirit.

Material fee includes supplies provided by instructor.  See student supply list for further details.
