 Cancelled - March 24 -Watercolour Tea Time

Watercolour can be bold and unpredictable, but also delicate and whimsical.  In this composition of a stack of teacups, we explore the gentler side of watercolour.  We will be practicing our drawing skills of ellipses and proportions, and then add paint in simple patterns and shapes, building up layers of colour and value as we go, all to tell the story of having friends round for a lovely cup of tea.







*Please Note: Price per workshop increased to $25

April 7 -  Acrylic:  Monet-style Water Lilies . FULL

Claude Monet painted hundreds of versions of the pond in his garden of his home in Giverny, France. In this project, we will create our own version of the view across the pond to the Japanese Bridge, an often used focal point in Monet’s work.  Distinct brush strokes, in the Impressionist style, will allow simple colours to sit side by side and create the effect of those iconic flowers seen on a bright summer day.




April 21: Acrylic:  Portrait of a Gentleman.

Faces can be broken down into standard proportions which are then manipulated to show distinct characteristics of an individual.  In this workshop, we will review those standards, and then use them to paint a portrait of an older gentleman.  Our composition will use strong highlights and deep shadows to mimic the chiaroscuro effects of the old masters.
