Art workshops this weekend at Lighthouse Community Centre

Qualicum Bay to play host to those with an artistic bent

Island Arts Magazine is holding some artist workshops this weekend at the Lighthouse Community Centre.

Softening Acrylics to Make Realistic Misty Landscapes is being presented by Mark Hobson, a Tofino artist who is best known for his rugged West Coast artwork.

On Friday evening there will be a demonstration outlining the basics involved.

On Saturday will be Premix, a series of greys blending colours quickly wet into wet and softening the brush strokes with a sponge.

The two techniques will be used to get the effect of fog.

On Sunday the workshop will continue with a choice of foregrounds to complete the scene.

Ruth Payne will present Fear-Busting for Artists on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
