New to our Programs, Acrylic Pilots! 

What is our Clay/Watercolour Pilot?

​Here at the Station Arts Centre, we are dedicated to finding ways to get the children and youth in our community involved in the arts. In the past, we have had a great relationship with Tillsonburg and surrounding area schools and organizations, and are pleased to offer our Clay Pilot and Watercolour Quilt program. During this program, an instructor will come to your facility (or the organization may come to us), and teach children either pottery or watercolour art to create fun projects that are perfect for every season and holiday.

Due to the tremendous support of our community and surrounding area, we now offer Clay Pilots for adults! Groups and Organizations can contact us to book an instructor for 1.5- 2 hours and create something truly unique, fun and handcrafted by them. Our Clay pilot is available year round, book early to reserve your spot.

 

Watercolour Quilt:

​The Watercolour Quilt program is for grades 2 and up and is a great way to teach children about colour mixing as well as basics in painting. During this program, the children will create a 6 to 9 (depending on age) “quilt” of various watercolour techniques. The children will create these techniques using only red, yellow and blue. By the end of the program, the children will have a great piece of artwork to bring home with them as well as have a basic knowledge in watercolours.

The Acrylic pilot is for grades 3 and up and is a great way to teach children about colour mixing, hues, tints, shades, as well as the basics of painting.

During this program, the children will create one 12” x 16” painting on canvas in a monochromatic theme. The children will be provided with a colour value sheet, pick a hue to paint with and then create 2 to 3 tints and shades derived from that hue. On the canvas, the children will draw out lightly the imagery they would like to work with, creating many layers, then using their colour value sheet as reference, they will paint lightest tint to darkest shade creating a work that has depth and perspective. By the end of the program, the children will have an amazing artwork to bring home with them as well as the basic knowledge of acrylic painting, colour value and perspective.
