Watercolour painting is one of the simplest ways to express yourself with colour! In this class geared for beginners, students will work with the enchanting medium of watercolours through demonstrations, hands-on exercises, and the creation of their own paintings. You will build a foundation by studying materials, learning about the importance of tone and mixing colour. Through various techniques, you will learn how to approach different types of subject matter.  The goal of this class is to gain an understanding of the balance of water and pigment while having fun and creating pieces.

Students have the option of purchasing all of their own supplies through the Materials List above or for the cost of $15.00 they can rent a watercolour kit which includes paint, palette and brush from the Instructor. If choosing the rental kit option, all additional miscellaneous materials (tape, eraser, pencil, etc.) must be purchased by the student.

Please notify the Centre at the time of registration if choosing the rental kit option by calling 905-713-1818 or emailing info@auroraculturalcentre.ca.
