September 11 - Create with Acrylic: Back to the Beach
Because no one wants summer to be over, our ‘At the Beach’ theme returns to kick off our Fall session. In this acrylic painting workshop, we will review our ‘ocean’ techniques of blending and layering, then switch up our techniques to add a dry-brush weathered boat to our composition. Texture medium will be introduced.
September 25 - Create with Acrylic: Inspired by Van Gogh Sunflowers
Working again with acrylic, but now from a tinted canvas, this workshop takes its inspiration from the work of Van Gogh. Layering and blending, using brushwork along with palette knives, and referencing the famous “Sunflowers,” we will use colour and texture to create our own vase of these classic fall flowers.

9 October: Watercolour: Fall Trees
This workshop begins with an introduction to classic and playful watercolour techniques, then focuses on only a handful of those techniques to create an image. Working with both wet and dry techniques, we will explore colour theory as we paint some beautiful fall trees.
23 October: Wirework: Tree of Life Suncatcher
Beginner wire wrapping techniques and glass beads combine in this workshop to create a simple but eye-catching version of a “Tree of Life” suncatcher. Choice of silver or copper wire will be offered.
