Sound a little artsy-fartsy? It might be but it's also a heck of a lot of fun with beautiful results. Using guided techniques,  students will use shape and colour to create landscapes which float through space, or drift across the page. They will connect with their inner creative spirit to mindfully explore this medium.  No experience is necessary

Beginning in the 17th century, as travel on the high seas increased, major coastal lighthouses were constructed to warn mariners of dangerous rocks, reefs, and currents. Lighthouses still send out signals that sailors use for navigation and warnings but now are run electronically. There is a rich history of these lighthouses and their keepers.  In this workshop the participant will have a variety of options to choose from lightly rendered drawings of lighthouses from around the world. The instructor will demonstrate on a variety of watercolour techniques and pen and ink to achieve a beautiful finished painting.

My parents were serious gardeners and no wonder as they came from Holland! I was fortunate to grow up with beautiful gardens, so naturally when I had my own place the love of gardening and flowers was passed on. In this workshop I hope to pass on my ethusiasum of botany with many, many samples of flowers, ( wild and domesticated ) to draw and watercolour paint or pencil crayon.
