Let the Brush Roll

Medium: Pen, watercolour, wash and mixed media
Skill level: All levels
Estimated material cost: $150-$200*

The core of this workshop is: “Loosen up in your artwork!”

Focusing on freehand sketching and watercolour painting, this workshop will concentrate on your own individual expression in art using pencil, pen, brush and watercolour (with optional mixed media).

A wide variety of topics will be covered with something special for everybody!

You’ll spend time developing skills in the field of shape, texture, composition, linework and toning, focusing not on copying your tutor but rather expanding your imagination, creativity and personality on paper.
