In the morning, students will create their own art journal, made with 140lb watercolour paper. These handmade journals will then be used for an afternoon of plein-air painting outdoors. Students will learn tips and techniques to approach sketching and painting with the elements.
From glassblowing to nuno felting, watercolours to oil painting, fine craft to fine art, our artist led experiences can be the catalyst for creative exploration or professional development.
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!
