NEW! Outdoor Introductory Watercolour Classes 2023!

One week only July 10th-14th

Taught by Cathy Earle, professional artist and illustrator

Enjoy the sunshine and paint beautiful scenery!

Each day we will paint at a different outdoor location around the city. 

This session will consist of five daily 2.5 hour classes.

Whether you have experience or not I will take you through step by step from learning how to mix all of your own colours from three tubes of paint, to achieving a 3 dimensional painting by mixing and adding the proper values to your painting.

Every class you will learn how to paint something new using this special mixing method.

Each class I will do a demonstration to show you how to get started. Then I go around and give personal one on one instruction to each student as needed.

First class Starts Monday July 10th  1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Second class Tuesday July 11th 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Third class Wednesday July 12th 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Students experiences taking the Introduction to Watercolour class:

1- What did you most enjoy about this class?
“I enjoyed the small class size that allowed for a lot of interaction with Cathy for feedback and assistance.  It was also very laid back and comfortable atmosphere to paint in.  Cathy is very patient and very positive and I was always excited to be painting again.”
2-What was your biggest accomplishment?
“Pushing past the “ugly duckling” stage of a painting because I felt confident enough that I could finish it and make it something I am proud of.”  Rachel A. February 4th 2020
1- What did you most enjoy about this class?
“The relaxed vibe. The small group. The essential techniques. And the support one on one.”
2-What was your biggest accomplishment?
“I really enjoyed making things look 3D via using values of the same color. And creating perspective in a landscape.”
“Thank you Cathy it was so much fun and I learned a lot as well! Still have a lot of learning to do but as much as possible I will try and keep it up and remember all the things you have taught me” .Nadia O.
