ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Take a cue from the Impressionists to create beautiful watercolour pieces!
Capture the shifting nature of light, and focus on spontaneity over realistic depictions of life using watercolour. Creative techniques will be introduced such as the “dot” technique reminiscent of Seurat, dry bush on rough paper, wax resist as well as playing with wet-in-wet, each technique revealing new ways of creating movement and light, while exploring the unique transparent and fluid nature of watercolour.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR: BETH FANJOY
Beth Fanjoy’s love of art is expressed through a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, photography and watercolour. She is particularly drawn to the fluid and transparent nature of watercolour, how it invites spontaneity and self-expression. Her subject matter ranges from figurative and landscape to non-representational. When possible Beth combines her passion for art with her yoga teaching, running workshops that combine creativity and intuition with meditation and movement. Through her teaching and practice she aims to inspire others to dig beyond the surface to reveal a reality that excites and connects. Beth has a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and Psychology. Her yoga training is through Kripalu Centre for Yoga and Health.
