This tour includes a 2 hour watercolour paint session on location at Pyramid Lake, Jasper National Park with local artist Karly Ireland. We will be working in watercolours, starting out with a drawing lesson, followed by an introduction to watercolour painting. In the class you will be encouraged to try creating several postcard sized studies of the surrounding landscape followed by one larger 9×12 painting by the end of the session.
Any skill level is welcome, whether you are a beginner and have never held a paintbrush in your life or if you are a fine art veteran and have been painting your entire life. This is not a class and we are not grading you. Karly is a coach that is giving you the freedom to be creative. We’re not telling you to paint in the lines and you don’t have to listen to everything we have to say. Art is therapy and this should be your chance to de-stress, unwind, and let your imagination run wild.
Weather can change quickly in Jasper please bring: Touque (Beanie), Warm Jacket, Scarf, Closed Toe Shoes.
Food Is not provided but we suggest that you bring some water and a snack as you will be outside for the 2 hours.
3 person Minimum and 10 person Maximum – we want more intimate classes so you can soak up all that the artist has to offer.
Unfortunately, if attendance is below our minimum 48 hours beforehand, then we’ll have to cancel the event or reschedule. We know…bummer 🙁 We know this policy might sound harsh, but in order for us to cover our overhead and make some sort of profit as a business (we need to pay our hard working artists and assistants too!) we need to reach that minimum in order for us to leave the studio and make it worthwhile for everyone involved.
