Level: Intermediate

Description: Using a limited palette of transparent colours students will learn how to compose and plan a watercolour painting; paint waves and reflections; spray paint to create dramatic waves; create texture & pattern; paint a complex seascape featuring water, land and clouds. The beginner course, which will be offered one month earlier, will introduce students to basic watercolour techniques, including brushwork and colour theory, with an emphasis on painting a simple seascape. Students can sign up for one or both courses.

Instructor: While Alora Griffin has explored other medium over the years, including drawing, oil and acrylic painting, ceramics and photography, she has been focusing on watercolour painting for the past decade. She has also taught drawing and painting classes to high school students, and adults in evening courses. Recently she exhibited her paintings of shorelines from Haida Gwaii, the Skeena River, Qualicum Beach, Cortes Island, Ucluelet and Comox, at a solo show at the Pearl Ellis Gallery, where she also volunteers and teaches.
