FEARLESS WATERCOLOURS FOR BEGINNERS, Sat. Jan. 20 from 10 until 4
Qu’Appelle Valley Centre for the Arts, Fort Qu’Appelle.
If you love the look of watercolours and have wondered if they are the medium for you, this one day PLAYshop is a perfect opportunity to give them a try in a safe, fun discovery based environment.We will explore the basics – creating a simple colour wheel, learning techniques like dry brush, wet on wet, and glazing. At the end of our day we will create a watercolour mandala – a kind of visual prayer using our new found skills.
On Sunday, January 21st an optional followup to delve a little deeper will take place from 1 until 4. This is optional and will allow us to apply our skills using real objects.

HANDS ON: Celebrating our Hands
Sat. Feb 10 from 10 until 4 in Regina at Red Fox Creative Studio
Sat. Feb. 24th from 10 until 4 in Fort Qu’Appelle at the Qu’Appelle Valley centre for the Arts
We use our hands almost every moment, but seldom do we stop to consider them, to think about the stories they could tell, and the ways which we love to use them. During this retreat-like day, we will explore the role of our hands in our lives by sharing stories (about our own hands and the hands of one or two others in our lives) , eating finger foods, taking time for quiet reflection, and creating something to celebrate our amazing hands.
