Photography Basics - cancelled

This course is designed to help you get your camera off the automatic setting. The course explores what all the little icons in your camera menu mean and how you can use them to capture your best photos. Once the class is comfortable with how to use their cameras we move to discussing common photography mistakes (and how to avoid making them), composition and tips and tricks on how to get more creative images.

Watercolor Basics - cancelled

This five week fall session will focus on getting you started with this fascinating and rewarding painting technique.

 You will learn how to mix and apply paint effectively and how to create beautiful vibrant hues from primary colours. Based on a "split primary" colour pallete, we will explore theory, values, blending, washes, hard and soft edges etc. You will be guided step-by-step through the process of producing images of your own.
Although the classes will be interactive, with ample time for discussion, appropriate safety protocols will be carefully observed.

All materials will be supplied on the first day of classes; you are asked to bring a tote bag so that you can take everything home with you at the end of each class. To get the most out of the classroom instruction, you are encouraged to practice techniques at home between classes.

Just bring a tote bag and an open mind!
