Watercolour Garden Workshop - (Adult Level 1)

In this fun workshop for adults, we'll learn the basics of watercolours while exploring various techniques to paint beautiful florals. Each student will produce a bundle of mini-paintings to keep, display, give away, make into cards or whatever use inspires you!

Where: Online live on zoom

When: Thursday June 6, 7 - 8:30 pm ET

Price: $28 + HST = $31.64

(button to register is at the bottom of this page)


Absolute beginners and intermediate artists are welcome. 

Supplies needed: 

Watercolour paints, watercolour paper and brushes

A container with water to wash out your brushes

Masking tape (optional)

Paper towel (or anything absorbent you don't mind getting stained)


We'll cover:

- Techniques to add depth and dimension

- Brush techniques to produce beautiful loose florals

- Composition basics 
- Creating texture, flow, balance and harmony
- What to look for when buying paints and other art supplies

- Any questions you have as we go along!

This would not be complete if we didn't address mindset. This workshop is a judgement-free zone and we'll talk about how to quiet that talkative inner critic who may have opinions about your art journey.

This workshop is perfect for you if:

- You have an itch to create but don't know where to start.

- You love the idea of painting flowers, and want some guidance to get you going.
- You have some art experience and want to expand your horizons.
- You like to doodle or colour in adult colouring books and want to take things to the next level.
- You like the idea of art as a meditative practice.

Each student will create a series of experimental mini-paintings in their own unique "Inspiration Bundle".

They can then use the bundle to spark inspiration at home whenever their creativity needs a boost! Your mini-paintings can also be framed, given away, made into cards or whatever other use you are inspired by.

Here's a peek at a similar in-person workshop I did with mini-paintings like this. (Yours can be bigger if you like.) Students tell me they like the mini-painting format because it's less intimidating.
