Watercolour: The Essential Sketch

Tuesday 9:00am - noon (starts April 16 for 8 wks)

The sketch approach encourages spontaneity and directness in on-the-spot observations, from still life objects or flowers, to the studio environment and the model. You will fill a sketchbook or portfolio full of small studies and sketches in watercolour, learn to simplify colour and composition and explore the freedom of recording what you see. Watercolour, pencil, pen, and ink will be used. Prerequisite: two sessions of watercolour.

Calligraphy: Foundational Script

Tuesday 1:00pm - 4:00pm (starts April 16 for 8 wks)

An introduction to one of the most important calligraphic styles: the classic Foundational Hand. We will look at the basic tools of the art, including pens, papers, and inks, learning both traditional and contemporary approaches to this elegant script. We will then create artwork inspired by individually chosen lines of text. Class demonstrations and hands-on practice are combined with individual guidance. No experience necessary.

Watercolour: The Painted Tree

Wednesday 9:00am - noon (starts April 17 for 8 wks)

Exercises in colour, brushwork, and composition will strengthen skills and develop confidence as you prepare to go further with your own artwork. Ongoing personal projects allow individual choice of subject matter and expressive content. Historical and contemporary watercolour artists provide inspiration. Prerequisite: Watercolour II or equivalent.
