Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre

WATERCOLOUR PRINTMAKING

(UPCOMING EVENTS TO BE ANNOUNCED)

Over two decades ago, non-toxic watercolour printmaking was invented at Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. It is now our signature art class! Whether you are a seasoned artist or wanting to learn something new, you will discover the art of learning through play. No previous art experience is required.

Artists invent, explore and experiment with wet colour that floats on a rigid surface. Rolling the printing plate through an etching press and printing the image is only the beginning. Mixed media and collage increase the artwork’s versatility. The ensuing masterpiece evolves and becomes a treasured work of art to take home. The results are surprising, satisfying and rewarding!
