Try your hand at drawing, or hone your existing skills, in a Back to Basics Still Life Drawing Workshop Series. Or take a plunge into the world of watercolour and learn the fundamentals of this ethereal medium in our Watercolour Back to Basics. Our Back to Basics series will allow you to build (or expand upon) a solid foundation, under the guidance and tutelage of accomplished local artists. All skill levels welcome, though these workshops are intended as a progressive series for the serious beginner or established artist.
