You may want to try your own meeting, by connecting with artists, friends or family. Give it a try, it is free but only for 40 minutes, then your meeting is dropped unless the host is a paid member. The Society will be a paid host, so you can join us and stay on as long as we want. Members may be able to use the Society’s Paid account for unlimited get together if we can work out a method to control it.

“Begin with the end in mind and then put first things first” – Stephen Covey
Join me as we step through some of the more interesting aspects of creating a painting. While some topics will definitely cross mediums, the focus of this class will be how these aspects are specifically affected by the watercolour medium.
Topics will include:
- Scene simplification by focusing on shapes, not things
- Connecting/interconnecting shapes with various wash techniques
- Creating a value map and applying the map to the painting process
- Texture as a compositional element and using dry brush techniques to create it
- Using colour to create harmony
Current Weekend Workshop Application Forms:
It was over sixty years ago, that a group of “Artists” got together and formed what was to become White Rock Painting and Sketch Club in 1962 and later know as the South Surrey and White Rock Art Society. Today they are one of the largest art groups in the Lower Mainland and have a waiting list of over one hundred people.
