Painting a Watercolour Street Scene (Online Class)

November 8, 7PM - 9PM | All Levels Adult Class

In this four evening online course Bonnie Steinberg will guide through an exploration in dynamic watercolour painting! Come and discover how light, and colour can put passion in composition! Ontario and its beautiful streets scenes, both rural and urban, will provide our inspiration. Our subject matter will include a simple street scene, or an urban back alley, complete with landscape elements, architectural elements, and other details.  This class is suitable for all levels of painters, as most will take away some concrete ideas and hope fully gain some new insight and perspective on composition. You will discover the secret of mixing great greens, deep violets and other wonderful hues. Some new and some old and proven techniques will be taught and demonstrated to provide a purposeful aim for designing a purposeful painting! Demos on these various techniques will be illustrated throughout the workshop.   Atmospheric and linear perspective will also be explore! Participants will marvel at the result…luminous and passionate paintings!

Southampton Arts is the current iteration of two longstanding programs supporting cultural expression on the shores of Lake Huron, in Southampton, Ontario.

The Southampton Art School was founded in 1957 by Bert Henderson while a co operative Gallery was founded by Carol Cleary and Tanya Weichel in 1999. Together, the School and the Gallery have provided artist led learning opportunities and a venue for local artists to present their work for decades.

Today, Southampton Arts is proud to continue a legacy that included an advisory panel comprised of members of the Group of Seven while continuously seeking ways to serve as a catalyst for cultural expression and appreciation in Bruce County.
