Painting: Explorations in Watercolour

How can you create a composition with the themes of risk-taking and exploration in mind? 

Program Description

From washes to mark-making, students will discover the creative possibilities of watercolour and mixed media. Students will be encouraged to build their confidence by taking risks so they can explore the concept of abstraction. An examination of both historical and contemporary works of art will provide context for students to express themselves through their composition of colours, shapes, forms, and lines. 

Program Objectives

By the end of the Painting: Explorations in Watercolour program, students will:

  • Examine works by artists to understand how you can create a composition with risk-taking and exploration.  
  • Discuss and apply colour theory to their work.  
  • Learn various watercolour and mixed media techniques.
