Saturday, June 5 | One-Day | Virtual | Adults 16+ | 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
All skill levels welcome

In this workshop, you’ll work from concept to finished painting – A Dairy Farm in Quebec at Sunrise. Starting with a general discussion on what to look for in a scene and what decisions you need to make to achieve a successful painting, you’ll learn instructor Helen Walter’s approach to painting, how to conquer colour mixing (using modern colour theory), a simplified approach to drawing, and how to handle brushes to achieve a loose and free finished painting.  Suitable for beginners and those who have painted before. This virtual workshop is a foray into our multi-week classes which we hope to resume in the Fall. 

$30.00 (HST included)
