(Registration through Southampton Art School- but taught in Bev's Hanover Art Studio)
Batik is an age old process of combining watercolour and wax that creates delightful results. Batik does much of the work for you allowing you to save the light to your advantage while adding a new dimension and interest to your work. Create a beautiful textured and exciting Lighthouse painting, by combining mediums: Pen, Watercolour & Batik on Rice paper. Rice paper has a slight translucency making it seem to glow in a way that other paper does.
Students may easily use this process to other landscapes involving realism and abstract images. Visit my You Tube video for more information on this class.


Bev will be available to conduct watercolour painting workshops in YOUR community (Canada and United States).

A friendly, down to earth, watercolour instructor, Bev enjoys travelling to communities outside her home art studio in Hanover, ON, Canada. Her students easily respond to Bev's style even with little or no art background.  Over the course of a weekend workshop, participants can expect to produce a lovely painting by following Bev's step-by-step approach.

Workshops generally run: Sat 9am to 5pm   and   Sun 9am to 5pm
Weekends preferred, but will also teach during week days depending on availability
Bev's rate is $250/day (1 to 4 students) $350/day (5 to 8 students) $550/day (9 to 15 students), plus travel, accommodation and meals.
Workshop participants will receive a supply list for the workshop or all art supplies can be provided by Bev at an agreeable cost depending on each workshop needs.
