In these fun and informative workshops you spend a delightful afternoon with artist CJ Shelton in her tranquil studio as she introduces simple and traditional step-by-step watercolour techniques that will have you creating your own little masterpieces in no time. Depending on the subject matter you will work from direct observation or photo reference. These are both introductory and skill-building workshops. Having some drawing or painting experience is helpful but total newbies are more than welcome.
2018 WINTER SEASON
Nature’s beauty in the heart of winter is always a cause for celebration but you can enjoy being warm inside the studio and savouring a hot cuppa as you paint the frozen landscape outside.
WINTER BIRCH TREES in Watercolour
DATE: Sat. February 24, 2018
TIME: 1-4 pm
COST: $75 + HST per person

As we wait in expectation of spring enjoy this fun session of celebrating winter’s beauty by creating a serene forest vignette of birch trees and snow covered hills.
Techniques such as washes, wet-in-wet, scumbling and dry brush will be used to encourage you to explore both traditional and expressive watercolour effects in your final painting.
New students are welcome, even complete newbies who have never tried watercolour before! If you have taken sessions with CJ this one will build on your previous drawing or painting skills and add additional ones to your repertoire.

Booking an art experience is a commitment to yourself, the facilitator and other participants. The following policies are in place to ensure that all workshops and sessions run as scheduled and help guarantee that everyone involved has an enjoyable experience.
PAYMENT Payment is by cash, e-transfer or credit card (VISA, Mastercard and AMEX accepted)
FULL PAYMENT IS REQUIRED AT TIME OF BOOKING To confirm your registration you must pay in full or provide a credit card number at the time of booking.
CANCELLATION POLICY Last minute cancellations other than for extenuating circumstances spoils the fun for all involved. Because classes are kept small to give each participant lots of attention, it creates challenges for the facilitator and disappointment for other registrants when there are no-shows or a change of mind that cause a class to be cancelled or run only half-full.
THERE IS NO REFUND FOR CANCELLATIONS LESS THAN 72 HOURS PRIOR OR FOR NO-SHOWS ON THE DAY OF THE WORKSHOP
A raincheck may be offered depending on the circumstances of the cancellation. If a workshop has to be cancelled due to inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances participants will either be notified of the re-scheduled day/time or a full refund will be provided.
