What you'll do

(weather permitting - inspirational nature walk in Caledon prior to lesson - 15 min) Guests will start the watercolour lesson by first learning techniques, they are then encouraged to play with the medium and get hands on experience. This will be an opportunity to try different techniques and get a feel for the tools. (approx. 30 min) Guests will be given a few options of what they can paint, after they've each chosen their preferred subject, I will break down the image by showing them which techniques we will use to complete the piece. I can also accommodate custom requests if there is something specific a guest would like to paint. Now it's time to start painting! Guests will be guided along each step of the process, & encouraged to take risks and have fun. There are no rules when it comes to art. Creating art is just as much about the experience as it is about the final product. (approx 2.5 hrs) The painting session will be structured to allow for breaks. light snacks and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided. BYOB is encouraged. Guests will complete a final painting to take home and are given info. pamphlets listing tools in case they'd like to explore on their own time.

Katelyn

My name is Katelyn Furniss, I am the artist and owner of Arthaus Collectif, a small watercolour business located in Caledon, specializing in everything custom! I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. I attended Mayfield S. S. of the arts, as well as OCAD University in Toronto. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have lived in Caledon my entire life and my work is inspired by the natural beauty of Caledon's rolling hills. I love escaping into my private studio to paint, listen to music, light a candle and give into the fluidity of my favourite medium, watercolour!

What's included

Food
Light snacks such as cookies and fruit will be provided. Please let me know about any dietary restrictions
Equipment
The studio is equipped with all the tools you'll need to complete your very own watercolour painting!

Where you'll be

weather permitting, each lesson will begin with a short 15 min nature walk through the Caledon hills of Mono Mills. Afterwards we will settle into my relaxing private studio to explore watercolour techniques, enjoy snacks, drinks, & some light music and let our creativity flourish. BYOB is encouraged but drinking and driving is not permitted. Please ask about local taxi services if required.
