Watercolour Journals

CCOM 1206

The beauty of the day...stop and take a closer look at the world around you. There is always something worth your time; worth seeing with fresh eyes. If you like recording your day in words, why not illustrate a journal in watercolours (or just watercolours alone)? Let watercolours bring back your memories and capture the wonder of the day!

Materials

  • A small object (can fit in your hand)
  • An unlined bound notebook (like a Moleskin notebook)
  • A black ink technical pen with waterproof ink (fine line - .5 is a good size)
  • Small water container
  • Watercolour paints
  • A couple of watercolour paint brushes

Note: Dress casually and comfortably, plus bring a snack since the class runs over the lunch hour.

About the instructor

Katie’s earliest art influence was Fredericton painter Lucy Jarvis, who just happened to be her aunt. Katie studied pottery in Regina and has had pottery in three international juried exhibitions in Italy and one National Art Gallery curated show designed for exhibition in small galleries. She has pottery in the permanent collection of the Saskatchewan Arts Board. 

She studied oil painting in Toronto with Andrew Bodor at Central Technical School and with Marion Wilson in private classes, as well as with Jennifer Pazienza. She has studied watercolour in short courses in France and Mexico, and encaustic with Sarah Petite. Katie is a member of the Toronto art group Central Connection and has shown in their group exhibitions in several locations in Toronto.

Since retiring and moving to Fredericton, she has had a studio at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, and has shown her work in the Centre’s Charlotte Glencross Gallery. Her work is in the permanent collection of the University of New Brunswick and in private collections across Canada and in the U.S.
