Workshop Description

Watercolour and acrylics are explored through weekly exercises where students experience exciting techniques that produce different effects on paper and canvas board. Subjects range from still life to animals, plants, and other things that exist in nature. While learning the elements of art, students will develop an art vocabulary as they learn to talk about their work and the work of others. They will also see paintings made by artists of the past, and will learn fun facts about the artists they come to know!

Topics covered:

  • Watercolour and acrylic paint techniques

  • Composition
