Introduction to Watercolours (Spring)
Date: May 3 – June 7
Time: 6 Wednesdays, 1:30 – 4:00 pm
Instructor: April White
Watercolours are a medium with potential for both gentleness and vibrancy and so have a great expressive capacity for any artist, but like anything they take practice to master. Working from still life and selected images, this class will teach you how to prepare your paper, plan your image, and apply the paint to achieve a variety of palettes, tonal values, and textures. Whether you are interested in figurative, abstract, landscape, or more contemporary designs, this class will provide a great technical foundation for you to progress with this medium. Leave with a small series of paintings that will make great references as you move forward. A great class to take with a friend!
Fee: $186 (includes HST, supplies extra)

Take your creative vibes outside! Get outdoors and soak up the oncoming summer while drawing some of the many beautiful natural features of our city. Some classes will meet at Anna Templeton Centre and arrange out from there, and others will have you meeting in a variety of areas around town, including Signal Hill, the battery, and Bannerman Park. Indoor venues for rainy days include the spectacular views from the Craft Council Gallery and The Rooms. Bring your favourite pencils, add colour with conte and pastels, and learn from masterful drawer Wallace Ryan how to capture the light, colour, and texture of the natural beauty that surrounds us.
