Spaces Available: 14

Instructor Karen Bishop

We will create a stunning winter scene using watercolours and yupo paper. You can mount your painting for a wonderful Christmas gift.


At the end of the class I will demonstrate how to mount a finished painting onto a birch panel and finish with a UV Varnish for protection, instead of the traditional way of framing under glass.

You can bring your own birch panel 5"x7" or 6"x6" to mount your painting. 

Karen can provide the acrylic gel for mounting, UV varnish & yupo paper for $20 paid directly to her.


Brushes include 1 largish and 1 smallish that you are comfortable using

  • Palette - one with a big centre space is ideal for mixing paints.

  • Watercolour Paints 

    • a cool yellow like lemon yellow

    • horizon or cerulean blue

    • indigo blue, Prussian blue or pthalo blue

    • a purple - quinacridone violet is my favorite

  • board and tape to attach the paper to

  • optional-5"x7" or 6"x6" birch panel

Karen Bishop I was born in Cheltenham, England, in 1968 and moved to Kingston, Ontario, in the winter of 1992. When I first arrived in Canada I was unable to work while I waited for my papers, so I made use of the time by enrolling in some art classes which I enjoyed very much.  In 2002 I graduated from the University of Alberta's Extension centre with a Fine Arts certificate.  Since 2007 I have been pursuing my art full time and between May of 2011 and January of 2016 I co-owned and operated The Daffodil Gallery in the heart of Edmonton’s Gallery district.
