NEW: Mindfulness and Watercolour

Watercolour is expressive and translucent while being calm. It finds its own path, as you guide it gently. When I wish to be mindful, I often, break with my routine and pick up my watercolours. It allows me to be creative. Yet, I need to pay attention to every mark I make. Which allows me to be in the moment and present during the painting process.

Visual arts usually require this intense mindfulness. If you lose the rhythm by being distracted it will show directly on your paper or canvas. Your focus is rewarded by remaining with the process.

Easy parking: on Braeburn Street, where you will see the black door to the studio, which will be open, follow the short path to the studio.

Covid protocols in place and due to this it is recommended that students bring their own supplies.


  • Acrylic paints-You can pick up a small inexpensive kit of acrylic paints from Opus Art Store, we recommend Liquitex, No. 1501, set of six, or you can pick up Daler Rowney or other brands at Walmart.
  • Your basic paints should include white, red, yellow, blue and black

If you already have supplies bring those.

  • Brushes-one small and one medium
