Watercolours with Nicole Bélanger

About This Program

The Dementia Society, in partnership with MASC, is excited to present Watercolours with Nicole Belanger.  During this workshop, participants will be introduced to the various possibilities offered by different types of brushes and let their creativity flow.  With watercolor, every brushstroke is an art, and there’s no room for error!

Participants will create two- or three-dimensional artworks that convey ideas, utilizing and arranging colors, shapes, and textures.  They will craft sculptures using suitable techniques and materials and articulate how key elements are employed to achieve the desired effects.

Nicole Bélanger is a visual artist specializing in directing group murals in schools and communities, including the homeless and health centers.  She emphasizes group efforts in concept and creation, providing guidance to ensure quality and skill development.

MASC offers schools and communities arts experiences led by professional artists that awaken the creative process, deepen cultural awareness, encourage engagement, and give vivid demonstration of Canada’s diversity.  To learn more about MASC, click HERE.
