Event Description

Guided by Nature Sketch artist and naturalist Jen Burgess, this 8-week course will introduce watercolour materials and techniques to help you add a splash of colour to your nature journaling. We will learn various techniques such as washes, glazing, dry-brushing, wet-into-wet, various ways to create textures, paint-resist/masking; we will go further into compositions, value, colour theory and colour mixing. But most importantly we will learn how to plan your composition and execute your process. Watercolour is a fun mental challenge so come prepared to think! Because this is not a drawing class, for subject matter we will mainly be working from public domain or credited reference images (or your own completed sketches and/or photographs if you’re feeling adventurous) of various nature-themed subject matter.

All classes will be made available to stream asynchronously if you cannot make the times listed! Instructors are also available by email for individual critiques or questions outside of class time.

Date: Every Wednesday between March 24 – May 12
Time: 6 – 8 PM Pacific Time
Price: $160 + GST

Supplies needed:

Winsor-Newton Cotman palette or Koi palette of minimum 12 paints (or better, whatever you have)
Watercolour sketchbook and/or thick watercolour paper (minimum 90lb paper) with a backing board
3 watercolour brushes in small 01/02, medium 05/06, large 10/12, and a 1″ -1.5″ flat brush
HB and 6B pencil
Gummy eraser
Tracing paper, graphite or carbon transfer paper
Painter’s masking tape
Paper towel
Water container
Optional – frisket/masking fluid
Other materials may be easily acquired around the house and will be discussed in the first class.
