Workshops

Join me in my studio overlooking the beautiful Bay of Fundy for a live workshop. My goal is for you to leave excited about the medium of watercolour and with skills you can build on. My students learn a lot while having fun.

I keep class sizes small so that you get lots of personal attention. That also means my workshops fill quickly so don’t wait to register.

Rock Your World Workshop

Saturday, May 6, 10am – 3pm

10 am – 4 pm, $80 (Workshop Kit $16)

Everyone loves the varied colours and shapes of the stones on the Margaretsville beaches. Did you know they also make a great subject for those just starting out in watercolours ( no need to draw a straight line) and are a lot of fun for the more experienced painter?

You will learn:

  • How to create the illusion of shape and depth
  • Easy but exciting watercolour effects
  • Basic colour theory (so you don’t have to buy every paint colour in the store)

Workshop kits are available if you want to ‘try before you buy’.


Beach Combing Workshop

Saturday, June 11, 10am – 3pm

10 am – 4 pm, $80 (Workshop Kit $16)

It’s exciting to find treasures as you amble along the beach but shells, rocks and sea glass are also fun (and easy) to paint.

In this class you can learn how to paint the sea’s edge complete with foam. You will also learn how to paint sand that looks so real you’ll have to stop people from touching your painting. Finally, you’ll create sea glass and replicate the lustre of shells. We might even add a bit of driftwood if there’s time.
