Summer Watercolour Workshop

August 6th & 7th
Uncover Your Inner Artist

Explore the joys of watercolour with acclaimed artist Jennifer Lawson. Learn the process from design through finished painting. We will paint en plein air at Jennifer's studio - the oldest house in Cowichan, with stunning views of the river, estuary, bay and Mt. Tzouhalem.

Discover many experimental ways of painting: have fun & enjoy a really unique experience - in one of B.C.'s most beautiful locations!
The workshop is two days long, and includes all materials as well as snacks and organic hot lunches. All you need to bring is yourself! We work together step by step, from initial concept and sketching on-site through to completed painting. I keep the group small enough so that I have time to work one-on-one with each painter as required; this means you can be at any level, from beginner to experienced.

Cost: $360
Address: 1516 Khenipsen Rd Duncan, BC

About Jennifer Lawson

Biography of Jennifer

Jennifer Lawson was born in Yorkshire and at an early age she began to soak up the brilliant colours around her, the warm tones rampantly spilling around country cottages, or trailing over garden fences. Her young eye was seduced by the sight of rich Indian textiles and lush patterns while traveling in India in the late 1960s, and that too has found expressions in her exuberant and charming paintings.
