Fall is one of the most colourful times of the year as nature changes the foliage into bright vibrate colours. We will explore color mixing as one colour runs into another with watercolour and then will create the textures with ink or felt pen lines. We will study leaves, trees, and a shrubbery against the bright blue skies. Learning how to work with watercolour can be a challenge but if you let the paint and water run, it’s much more fun and just do detail with lines. Come join this loose approach to mixed media.

Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
