Courtenay Rec offering watercolour class

“Test the Waters” painting classes with artist Bill Kerr

Do you want to try watercolour painting? Courtenay Recreation is offering the popular “Test the Waters” painting classes with artist Bill Kerr.  Around 200 people have gained their first exposure to this medium through Bill’s classes.

In this weekend workshop, participants will work on technique exercises and then complete a few paintings. For a modest fee, a selection of colours, paper and brushes are supplied with a palette. Participants will be asked to bring a few common household items. At the end of the class participants will keep the supplied materials, and of course their finished artwork to take home and frame or at least hang on the fridge.

The tone of the presentation is relaxing and fun. However, participants must be warned that this activity could be habit forming.

The workshop takes place Saturday Nov. 26 and Sunday Nov. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Tsolum Building in Lewis Park. Participants must sign up by Nov. 10 so that materials can be ordered and delivered. The fee is $100, plus a $16 fee for materials to be paid directly to the instructor. Register early as space is limited.

For more information or to register, please call Courtenay Recreation at 250-338-5371 or 250-338-1000 or visit www.courtenay.ca/rec.
