The Nanaimo Art Gallery is offering a spring watercolour workshop for beginners. An Introduction to Watercolours for Adults and Seniors with artist Arless McNeill is intended to teach you how to paint what you see. The emphasis will be on how to use the brush and paint to assemble elements that can be used to create sea/landscape/wildlife paintings.
The four-week workshop will be held on May 20, 27, June 3, 10, 2009, from 1:30-3:30 pm. The cost is $85.00 per person plus GST. Paper will be supplied by the gallery, and a list of required paints and brushes will be provided to participants in advance. The location is Building 330 at 900 Fifth Street on the Vancouver Island University campus. For more information, call 250-740-6350.
