Watermedia Explorations at Haliburton School of the Arts

 Hello Artists!
Please join me for a fun-filled week this summer at Haliburton School of the Arts.  If you are a returning student, you will know that painting for an entire week is an intensive and inspiring experience.  If you are new to Haliburton, you will find this opportunity will be the highlight of your summer.  You will feel energized and filled with new confidence, being among people who all love the arts. Here is a description of the course:

Course Number: ARTS1656
Going beyond the traditional watercolour experience, explore creative ways of using and applying water media, including gouache, fluid acrylics and inks. To add excitement and drama to the painting process, experiment with materials such as rubber cement, pastels, watercolour pencils and crayons on a variety of substrates such as TerraSkin, Aquaboard and Yupo. Experiment with textural effects to achieve contrasts of texture, colour, line and shape. In a supportive and encouraging learning environment, create a series of small paintings that will be the inspiration and reference for future paintings.

Registration online begins March 1.
