Introduction to Watercolours (Fall)

Date: September 19 – October 17
Time: 5 Tuesdays, 7:00 – 9:30 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, and if the weather is nice, a few classes may even be outside!

Fee: $158 (includes HST, supplies extra)

Art in the Afternoons: Drawing & Watercolour (Fall)

Date: September 21 – November 9
Time: 8 Thursdays, 1:00 – 3:30 pm
Instructor
: April White

Designed to help you have fun and relax on a Thursday afternoon, this class will focus on developing basic drawing skills and then shifting these into a small series of watercolour paintings. Drawing is an important foundation for all other activities, and April will introduce some of the basics including contour drawing, form, shape, and pattern. With that in your pocket, you will learn a variety of simple watercolour techniques and apply them in some exercises and small pieces. For those with little to no experience, this is an excellent way to unwind and explore these artistic media. A great class to take with a friend, and a perfect precursor to many of our other art classes.

“As someone with zero art experience, I found the class challenging at times but very accessible. April is very positive and encouraging, and she made the entire experience fun. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the entire experience. I highly recommend her class to anyone who has never tried an art class before.” from a recent participant in April’s Art In the Afternoon class
