Location: 
Kelowna
Sun, February 11, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Sun, February 11, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Jolene will demonstrate techniques such as blending, glazing, and colour mixing - all with the aspiration of creating both light and depth on the flat surface of a canvas.

Jolene will teach the basics of oil painting techniques, from mediums and paint brands, to brushes and clean up - She will demonstrate how to safely handle and work with oil paints. Jolene will also discuss the development of a personal style, or filter through which each artist sees the world. The importance of doodling, sketching, and play will be encouraged in an effort to find sources of inspiration from the simple things in life.

Space is limited and registration is required.
