Creative Thursdays: Watercolour Landscapes
6:00–7:00 pm: French 7:30–8:30 pm: English
Creative Thursdays are a great way to explore art techniques on selected Thursday evenings. Drop in for demonstrations by working artists, and get creative yourself.
This month, join artist Dhanashri Bapat for a workshop inspired by paintings from the exhibition Canada and Impressionism: New Horizons. Participants will look at a selection of work from the exhibition with one of the Gallery’s interpreters, then be guided through a watercolour workshop by the artist.
This activity is free of charge, and is intended for beginners and experts alike.
