Can’t commit to multi-week class sessions? Now you can “pay as you go.”
$45 per class.
Note: open to ALL LEVELS – Beginner to Advanced
Enjoy a friendly, creative environment for all levels from beginner to advanced where we will learn a variety of techniques to allow you to create beautiful watercolour paintings. We will explore wet in wet, dry brush, charging in and many other techniques. For returning students these classes will hone your skills and give you an opportunity to go deeper into this medium with confidence.
During this four week session, we will complete two paintings, the first being a sunset scene (and a modified sunrise scene) which we will explore light and backlighting. Suggested paper size is a minimum of 5 x 7” or any size you choose.
The second piece will be a floral where we will discover the beauty of painting loosely. We will work on several examples to capture this technique.
Materials required for this session are:
Watercolour pallet, water container, full set of watercolour paints, paper towels, watercolour paper (I highly recommend Arches 140 lb cold pressed)
1/2” and 1” soft bristle flat brush
Number 1 and a number 4 and 6 round brush
