Join us for a virtual watercolour workshop with emerging visual artist and curator Darcie Bernhardt, featured in INUA.

Bernhardt will be teaching their process of creating a watercolour painting using a photo reference over Zoom. Participants are encouraged to have a variety of paintbrushes, a few sheets of watercolour paper, watercolour paints, pencil (2H or higher is recommended), an eraser, and a photograph to work from.

Please note: Drawing the outline of your photograph will not be covered in the workshop. If you would like to draw or trace it out beforehand here is a tutorial on a few different methods for doing that.


This post is part of RBCxWAG: INUA Virtual Sessions, connecting you with Qaumajuq’s inaugural exhibition no matter where you are in the world! Watch for monthly programs with the artists and curators at wag.ca/inua-online.
