Watercolour Café with Zan Barrage

A cup of coffee and watercolours. This is what we have in mind for our ongoing weekly watercolour class. On a lazy Sunday morning, come spend two hours with master watercolour artist Zan Barrage as he helps you explore new techniques and challenges you to push your skills further. Each week will feature a new subject with a focus on techniques and skills to make your paintings better. Sunday morning will never be more satisfying and fulfilling.

All skill levels are welcome. Zan will help each participant achieve their own personal best in a caring friendly environment with breaks for stretching and fun.

These classes are running continually and students may register for a single session or consecutive spots in 4 or 6 sessions as your time and schedule permit. Registration is for the first available session.

About the Instructor

Zan Barrage

A classically trained artist, Zan is the recipient of several awards for plein air painting in Ontario. He is the founder and past president of Ontario Plein Air Society, a group of Ontario painters dedicated to painting the Canadian landscape from life.

I paint because I fall in love with a moment. Sometimes I capture it successfully, and other times, too many times, I fail. I am proud to say that my artwork has seeped into private collections from Australia through Europe to North America. I cherish all my collectors and value their choice to own my artwork. In a way, a work of art is not whole.
