NatureSketch Watercolour Painting in the Bateman Gallery: Colours of Winter Course PM
January 21 @ 2:00 pm – February 25 @ 3:30 pm PST
Watercolours are unique because of their transparency, luminosity, and brightness. The paint pigments are diluted making the paint more transparent, the thin layers make beautifully bright colours. Nature presents in an incredible variety of colours, shapes, patterns, and lights, and is a great source of inspiration.
In this 6-week online watercolour painting course, taught by Vida Akef, we learn the fundamentals of watercolour painting and bring a vibrant array of colours, luminosity, and life to our paintings. We start by covering basics such as paint thickness, colour mixing, layering and glazing, and shape techniques. We move on to explore the brilliant colours and shapes of the natural world in this winter themed nature painting class. Using eco-literacy principles from world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman, we encourage participants to connect to nature through art and observation.
Due to popular demand, we have opened a second winter solstice watercolour afternoon course running from January 18 to February 25 from 2 pm to 3:30 pm.
At the end of the program students have the opportunity to submit their art to be put up in the NatureSketch Gallery.
Instructor will email students with finalized details a few days prior to the beginning of the class.
All online classes can be watched later if you cannot make the times listed! Instructors are also available by email for individual critiques or questions outside of class time.
