Tuesday Workshops with Artist & Instructor Rachel Harbour - 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

$20 per workshop due at time of registration (includes materials). Register early as space is limited.

January 14 FULL - Acrylic: Palette Knife & January 28 FULL - Chalk Pastels: Sailboat

February 11 FULL - Watercolour: Snowy Mountains 

Watercolour can be delicate enough to depict the finest shadows, like trees on snow, or dense enough to depict heavy texture, like the crags and rocks of a mountain.  Building up layers of washes, then moving to smaller marks and details, allows us to create this mountain scene inspired by a trip through the Rockies.





February 25 - Acrylic: Sgraffito Basket of Fruit. 

Sgraffito (derived from the Italian “to scratch”) is a technique used to remove (by scratching) part of a surface layer in order to reveal a layer underneath.  We will work on a tinted canvas and, using an assortment of tools, explore the different textures we can ‘sgraffito’ as we create our own basket of fruit.
