Painting in oils, students will use classical techniques to paint a rose from life just in time for Valentine’s day.
Students will receive a short primer on drawing and colour. There will be a demonstration and for the rest of the day, students will paint a rose in the alla prima or direct painting style.
Photography will not be used—to capture the essence of life, students will work entirely with real flowers.
All levels of experience are welcome. To sign up, contact the Homer Watson House & Gallery at (519) 748-4377, quoting program number 1818.
