In this three hour workshop, we will start from scratch everything you need to know about painting watercolor landscapes. We will begin with warm ups then move into clouds, misty forests, and sunset skies. Let's explore the magic behind a stress-free watercolour practice together!
This is a beginner friendly workshop, no experience is necessary. Workshop is limited to 8-10 participants so that Coco can taker her time to guide each participant one-on-one. Painting supplies are provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own supplies if they have any that they want to experiment with.
I am fascinated with understanding the therapeutic relationship between art creation and the mind. After attaining my B.Sc. in Neuroscience and Psychology from McMaster University, I continued forward to my Masters under the Department of Medicine in Psychiatry. Here I was hit with a wave of challenges that left me in much pain. Serendipitously I turned to the watercolor palette on my desk with the intention to alleviate some of that pain. Little did I know this would be the marriage of psychology and art in my life. Stemming from philosophies of mindfulness and art therapy, my watercolor painting and videography practice became a powerful yet un-invasive modality for healing. My own experiences with this have led me to a reinvigoration of art and purpose in my life. It is my greatest hope that my art practice can lead to the inspiration, transformation, and healing of others.
My philosophy for painting is process focused rather than the results. I see the paint brush as a tool for self expression and the paints as living breathing entities that give the process of art creation life. I think of form, colours, and gestures, as a pathway to communicate from our subconscious what can not be expressed through words. It is in this space that I believe we can begin important, often hard, dialogues with ourselves and others. It is through this space that I believe we can bring about healing.
