Summer 2018 Painting Workshops with Twila Robar-DeCoste

I am offering three painting workshops from my studio here in Aylesford.

Afternoon Tea– In this workshop we will do a watercolour painting of a teacup and a treat. You get to keep the china teacup of your choice and we will enjoy afternoon tea at the end of the workshop. Hats optional.

$70.00 per person. Friday August 17, 2018 10:00-3:00 pm

Shoreline Sketchbook During this two day workshop you will create a ‘keeper’ sketchbook and idea file. The topics of wave action, rocks and cliffs, boats, shorelines and sunsets will be covered. Handouts, photo references, tips, techniques and book materials will be provided to help you make your special book. You only need to bring your pencils, paints and brushes. There will be field trips to the Fundy shore weather permitting. All media welcome.

$120.00 per person, snacks provided, bring a lunch. Transportation offered for field trips to the beach. Thursday and Friday – August 23 and 24, 2018 10:00-3:00 pm


Painting animals in Acrylic- In this workshop we will explore painting animals. Willow has kindly offered to pose, but since this is very time consuming and she may get tired, we will instead work from photos of various animals. Colour mixing and fur painting will be the main topics. A sketch and photo reference will be provided. Acrylic 8 x 10 canvas will be required.

$70.00 per person. Thursday, August 30, 2018, 10:00-3:00 pm
