Join artist Dean Bauche for a guided, affirming exploration of the joys – and perils – of watercolour. This four-week session is for both newcomers and experienced watercolourists, and will include foundational and advanced concepts.
Bauche provides fun, engaging instruction, including activities that will provide insight into the personality of watercolour, letting go, design and colour, and much more. The classes will let students focus on their choice of landscape, still life, and even portraiture. Classes will take place at the I Belong Centre in Courtenay (1465 Grieve Ave.).
