Week 2 – Learning how to use the brushes by adding water to the created drawing;
Week 3 – Introduction to and experimenting with working on wet paper;
Week 4 – Learning about and applying washes;
Week 5 – Bringing a subject of your choosing, & applying what has been learned in week 1 to 4;

“As an absolute beginner with no drawing or painting experience, I found Gabriele’s philosophy of “no mistakes – no judgement” to be highly liberating. Now, after some years of her classes, I can appreciate how this approach not only grounds her students in good technique, but also keeps the process fun!” – Diane MacDonald, Mar 13, 2017

About The Instructor

Gabriele Craig, grew up in Germany, coming to Canada in the ‘Centennial’ year. Her background as Artist includes teaching at the International Academy of Design, the Art Institute of Toronto, and George Brown College. Today, Gabriele lives, paints and teaches in Toronto. As Watercolourist and Art Instructor with 20 yrs of teaching experience, she has a way of “demystifying” the art of watercolour painting in her unique approach to painting and teaching.

The goal is to come away from painting with satisfaction and enjoyment.
