Event description

Description

New to watercolour? That’s why we are here! Join Stephanie Fowler, local artist, and urban sketching / watercolour specialist. This indoor workshop will cover sketching basics, and introduce you to the wonderful world of watercolour basics. Learn more about Stephanie’s work on Instagram: @designbystlight

Cost: $75 + taxes and fees (the entire class takes place in our workshop space at Recess)

Celebrate historical Inglewood by learning to sketch and paint one of it’s iconic buildings, the Cross Residence.
Originally established in 1891 as a single family residence, you’d know it today as Rouge Restaurant. The house’s original owner A. E. Cross was one of the city’s ‘Big Four’ - contributing a quarter share in founding the first Calgary Stampede in 1912.

What is Urban Sketching? In it’s simplest form Urban Sketching is drawing on site, telling the story of our surroundings, and recording a moment in time and space. In this workshop we will start simple - using a reference photo of Rouge Restaurant. You will learn how to simplistically capture the overall shape of a building and it’s prominent features, and then most importantly how to use watercolor to bring your scene to life.

Learning goals include the following:
+ discover three classic approaches to watercolour : wet in wet washes, wet over dry layering, and for an added pop of vibrance, splattering (which really is as easy as it sounds!)
+ learn to capture a building in it’s most basic geometry, learning to scale buildings on your page and to avoid creeping out of your frame
+ drop that ruler! Learn to draw lines with energy and verve
+ using pen and permanent ink to add drama with dark marks
+ finally, adding in simple street furniture with foliage and signage

The workshop includes the following:
+ Step-by-step instruction by talented local artist, Stephanie Fowler
+ Guide for watercolour techniques
+ An urban sketching watercolour kit, which includes ($50 value):
+ Windsor and Newton Watercolour Travel Kit (12 colours + Travel Brush)
