What to expect
Art Toolkit workshops are live events that take place on Zoom. During the workshop, you will have a chance to ask the instructor questions. After the workshop, we’ll provide you with a recording to review on your own time.
We’ll be in touch a week before the workshop with instructions for connecting and additional information. Please remember to adjust for your time zone. Tickets are non-refundable, but we may be able to transfer your ticket to another student if there is a waitlist.

BrushesA round that keeps a good point. I use a Da Vinci size 6 travel brush.
PenYour favorite pen with waterproof ink. I use a Pilot Metropolitan with Noodlers Lexington Grey ink, but use whatever you have handy! (you might like to have a couple of options to play with). I also enjoy my Lamy Safari and a refillable Copic Multiliner size 0.25.

Andrea England is a watercolour artist and sketcher based in Victoria, British Columbia. Her studio and home is a 36' sailboat, and much of her art is inspired by the coasts, forests and seas of the Pacific Northwest.
Sketching underpins and inspires Andrea's professional art practice. Drawing and painting in her sketchbooks lets her create a unique record how a place feels as well as how it looks. Her sketches become a playground and laboratory where she can play with different approaches and techniques. Andrea believes that everybody is an artist inside, and we can all develop our own unique styles with a little exploration and a sense of adventure. She loves the way making art can bring us joy, as well as fostering a deeper sense of connection with our world as we slow down and really look at it.
