"When you can't go outside, go inside" and find a little distraction from the uncertainty of current world issues with this on-line art class featuring guided watercolour techniques. Bring your curiosity to a meaningful activity that includes a mixture of stimulation, reflection, thought provocation, peaceful calm, relaxation and mindfulness.
For the purpose and timing of this class, we will focus on a watercolour art piece. Examples shown are done with plain lead pencils, coloured pencil crayons and watercolour, but, feel free to use whatever tools you have in your art bag.
Your guide will be Cathy Wild, a Barrie resident who began painting as therapy in April 2016 after her own journey of self-discovery after brain surgery. Some of her art has been on display at The Edge Gallery and at The Barrie Art Club.
Through an association with the Community Wholeness Centre, Cathy is excited to volunteer her time in helping others paint while continuing her own recovery. May you find yourself inspired by the giftedness that emerges through your creations.
