Kids ages 7-12 will get the chance to learn the basics of watercolour from Quadra Island artist Perry Johnston at an upcoming class at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

The class, for children aged seven to 12, takes place over four sessions, Wednesdays, April 2 to April 23 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The classes are designed for juniors and will cover techniques, washes, glazing, splatter and spray effects and more. Participants will learn about the colour wheel and basic design elements, but the focus will be on enjoying a playful painting experience.

Johnston has been drawing and painting most of her life and her watercolours have been exhibited in numerous shows. Having received professional art instruction from some great teachers, she hopes to share some of this experience with others. Her kids’ classes at the Campbell River Art Gallery are always popular.

The cost for ‘Beginner Watercolour with Perry Johnston’ is  $65 for members of the Campbell River Art Gallery and $75 for non-members. All supplies are included.
