Introduction to Watercolour

Welcome to Museum’s School of Art !

Tuesdays, April 24, May 1, 8, 15, 22 

1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Learn some of the many techniques of watercolour that allow you to get all those marvellous qualities of transparency and opaqueness. A beautiful medium that artists such as Cézanne, Turner and Van Gogh practised with breathtaking results.

Instructor: André Pijet, artist and Art Educator

André Pijet moved from his native Poland to settle in Quebec in 1988. His training in fine arts and photography, along with his innate talent for drawing, soon led him to a career as an illustrator, caricaturist and cartoonist. He is well-known for his book illustrations and for his work as a graphic artist and art director. His works have been featured in several major exhibitions, earning him a number of international prizes.
