2019 Classes & Workshops at Hooper Studios & Lifestyles

Watercolor workshop Retreat, February 17th, 1pm – 4.30 Sunday afternoon. with Kathy Hooper.   Cost $45.

At Kathy’s house, Hooper Studios  “Using Watercolor can be tricky but it is a lovely medium and much easier to work with then pots of acrylic or messy oils. You need only a small box of water colours, a couple of brushes and good water colour paper. The workshop will be based first on a few ways the medium works, which I will demonstrate, and then you will work on fairly small pieces of paper to find out how the medium works for you. Then! we will have a break for English TEA with scones delicious jam! and cream!! and then you will settle on either something from your imagination, perhaps from a photo you like, or I will have an arrangement of flowers and a still life to try. I see this afternoon being for both beginners and people who have done watercolours and want to do more or get back to it again. You will need to bring a small box of watercolours. Windsor and Newton have a good range of colours and perhaps if you have favorite brushes, bring them. Otherwise I will provide the paper and brushes.”   Tea or coffee will be part of all of this with some good treats. Limited to eight people
