Full-day Watercolour Workshop with William Rogers! Saturday, September 16th 2017 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Inverness County Centre for the Arts is delighted to offer a one-day workshop in watercolour painting by renown Nova Scotia watercolourist, William Rogers. This intensive, hands-on session will offer students of all levels of experience the rare opportunity to learn the secrets of this beautiful and popular technique.

William Rogers works out of his backyard studio in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. His art reflects his passions as well as his environment.

Living in small town Nova Scotia in the 21st Century has the best of both worlds. He is close to all the plein air subjects he needs and the modern technology and travel allow him to be a part of the larger world and the world of fine art, that he lives and breathes.

William has participated in Plein Air Competitions and Events in Easton MD, San Angelo TX, Carmel CA, Frederick MD, Annapolis MD, Cumberland MD, Calloway Gardens GA, Bennington VT, Hamilton Bermuda, and Castine ME among others and have been the recipient of numerous awards.

William is a multi-medium artist who works in watercolour, oil, drawing media, and printmaking. He occasionally uses acrylics as well. His subject matter consists of plein air landscapes, figures from life, horses and equestrian scenes, and anything else that catches his eye.

In May 2014, William served as the Royal Tour Artist for HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall during their visit to Canada, a great honour and the thrill of a lifetime. A number of the completed works from the tour were selected by HRH the Prince of Wales for his collection.

To see more of his work check out his website at http://williamrogersart.com/ and visit his local gallery http://www.lyghtesome.ns.ca and others listed in the ‘Galleries’ section.

The Workshop fee is $75 and the maximum number of participants is 12 allowing for individualized instruction for everyone from beginners to advanced.
