Watercolour II

Tuesday 9:00am - noon (starts April 18 for 8 wks)

Continue to strengthen your watercolour skills and techniques in relation to transparency, wet-on-wet, dry brush, direct painting, line and wash, etc. Issues fundamental to all painting – colour dynamics, drawing, and composition – are addressed through directed exercises. Develop skill through a greater emphasis on expressive watercolour style.
Prerequisite: two sessions of watercolour.

Mixed Media Drawing

Tuesday 1:00pm - 4:00pm (starts April 18 for 8 wks)

Opening the boundaries between drawing and painting, this course explores the creative possibilities and vast array of materials and techniques available to the mixed-media artist. Ink, watercolour pencils, charcoal, and pastels are used subjects in a multi-layered, playful manner. Inspiration will be drawn from both past and contemporary artists. Some models included. Prerequisite: one session of drawing.

Watercolour: Seascapes of the Atlantic Coast

Wednesday 9:00am - noon (starts April 19 for 8 wks)
Saturday 1:00pm - 4:00pm (starts April 22 for 8 wks)

The seascapes of Winslow Homer, John Marin, and others have vividly depicted in watercolour the choppy seas, crashing waves, and large expanses of the eastern coast. A close examination of their gestural brushwork, evocative colour choices, and use of perspective inspires a series of studies based on photos, sketches, and memory. Personal projects will deal with our local shores, following the St. Lawrence to the ocean.
Prerequisite: two sessions of watercolour.
