Nothing makes our world a little brighter or speaks of late summer than the flitting and floating of Monarch butterflies as they collect nectar from the August flowers.
Similar to floral botanicals, you can use pen & ink with watercolour to create detailed portraits of these delightful little insects. Or go more free-form and loosely wash colour across their wings in a more abstract wet-in-wet fashion. The choice is yours! CJ will be by your side to guide you every step of the way in creating your own unique piece.
New students are welcome, even complete newbies who have never tried watercolour before! If you have taken sessions with CJ this one will build on your previous drawing or painting skills and add additional ones to your repertoire. Please bring any watercolour brushes or paints you currently have although supplies will be available for those who don’t have them. Paper and stretching boards will be supplied.
PRE-REGISTRATION with full payment IS REQUIRED. Contact CJ at 519-942-2018 or email
