Beyond Realism: Whimsical faces in watercolour

This Class will follow all mandated health protocols as set forth by the BC Ministry of Health.

This watercolour portrait class is designed for those who crave freedom in art-making and want to draw and paint outside the realm of reality. We will delve into the world of whimsical and surreal portraiture, learning simple ways to draw and paint fun and lively faces. We will explore painting and drawing techniques that will allow you to create portraits without perfect knowledge of paint-mixing and realistic drawing techniques. This class is for beginners, but experience in drawing is an asset.
