Session 2

6-week class: Wednesdays,

Apr 1 to May 6, 2020

1:30pm - 4:30pm


Don’t be afraid of working with watercolours!  This six week watercolour class will give you more confidence to focus on many of the basic techniques that make this medium challenging, yet rewarding.  Landscapes will be the main focus of interest.  There will be lots of demonstrations and instruction at all levels as needed.  Students will also have lots of painting time to experiment with these watercolour techniques.  Other artistic topics to be discussed include: value sketching, colour mixing, composition and perspective.  While we will work in a group setting, students will also receive one-on-one instruction and critiques. All proficiency levels are welcomed.  

A watercolourist for the past twenty years, Gregory Maude has refined his style of watercolour to the point that his muted shades of colour begin to blend together, forming interesting negative and positive shapes.


Greg has been a member of several Ontario art associations and has taught at the Oshawa Art Association and Whitby Arts Inc. He was awarded the “Samac Painter of the Year” award, becoming the fifth member of a select group of artists known as the OAA-Samac Painters. You can see his work here.
