***April 28th, 2024 : Watercolour Demo by Tommy Lee***
A chill workshop aimed at making watercolour painting with the line and wash method totally approachable. We’re all about creating a laid-back vibe where you can let loose and have fun with your brush. We’ll kick things off with some easy warm-up exercises to get you in the groove and feeling comfy with your paints. Then, we’ll dive into the basics of line and wash, no pressure, just good vibes. Whether you’re a newbie or you’ve dabbled in painting before, this workshop is totally for you. We’re all about experimenting and having a blast, so don’t stress about getting everything perfect. Mistakes? Nah, they’re just part of the journey! So come hang out with us for a fun and relaxed painting sesh where creativity is king and fun is the name of the game. Can’t wait to see what masterpieces we’ll create together!
To those familiar with the space – please be available to help others find their way. There are a number of entrances and the space is quite large so there’s a good likelihood of folks getting lost.
Also, please check out the rest of the gallery on your visit. There’s a lot of great art to see and it doesn’t cost anything to do so. 🙂
*Bring your own supplies*
The Facility:
– The space is on the main floor, just past the cafe
– To get to the closest entrance, you’re entering from 10 Daly St, under the new condos to the left of Arts Court. You should see the cafe on your right as you enter. If you continue past the cafe, the room will be on your right just past the cafe
– If you come from the Mackenzie King side you’ll need to go to the opposite side of the building and down a floor. Ask around for how to get to the cafe and you’ll find your way
– There’s a paid parking garage across the street
– There’s free parking at city hall on the weekends
– On side streets around Daly/Besserer there are usually free spots as well
– Daly/Nicholas is the closest intersection, enter on the Daly St. entrance
– Alternatively, get off at the Mackenzie King station, then walk over the bridge towards Nicholas (northbound) then enter OAG on your left. Walk through the building to get to the space on the opposite side
**Masks suggested but not mandatory**
One of the core objectives of Artawa is to create a safe space for everyone and we do frequently have vulnerable people who attend. While we’re still figuring things out in this post-pandemic world we will be recommending the use of masks while in the main space.
If you have any questions, reach out to Kina Forney
