Intro to Watercolor – Outdoor Edition



Dates: May 31, 2024

Time: 6 pm -8 pm

Are you curious about watercolor? Have you always wanted to sketch what you see outside with minimum hustle but in color? Does the idea of painting outside with a gorgeous lakeview appeal to you? This workshop is for you!

Absolutely no art experience necessary and all art supplies are included!

In the 2 hours that we’ll have we’ll cover the basic principles and techniques of watercolor painting and do several simple exercises to apply what we’ve learned. We’ll also attempt to depict some of the natural beauty that will surround us.

After the workshop you’ll be all set to explore the beautiful Okanagan with a paintbrush in hand! You will never be bored again!
