It doesn’t take being an artist to tell that recently, watercolour is outshining other types of medium when it comes to art making. Enter Instagram - the haven of all things creative, where you’ll find that there is no shortage of ah-ma-zing watercolour works of art. One could deduce that perhaps watercolour is more popular than ever before because of its accessibility and portability, which is always a top driver of choice for anyone, especially for millennials.

This medium is also attracting a wider interest because of the freshness and luminosity of effects that can only be achieved with watercolour. Watercolour may be an easy medium to carry, but it certainly isn’t easy to handle. Often you have to be quick when you work with it, and the effects you make cannot be reversed or duplicated. Oh, but how we love how soft and airy these effects can be.

If you want to learn how to create beautiful, luminous effects with watercolours, there’s no better time to learn how to paint with watercolours than now. Join this upcoming class by Maker’s Loft where your amazing instructor of the day will be the artist Andrina Manon. The workshop’s focus will be watercolour illustration and participants will dive deeper into character design, narrative creation and drawing exercises. At the end of the class, you’ll have developed a beautiful, short book illustrated in watercolours.
