Craftsy: Getting Started with Watercolor

craftsy-watercolor

Once again, this week our sponsor is Craftsy which provides video tutorials and downloadable eGuides for aspiring artists. The resources they provide are aimed at people who want to quickly brush up on some basics. This week they’re offering a free downloadable eGuide on the basics of watercolor.

The eGuide provides an introduction to things like paper types, color value, temperature, and intensity, as well as the proper technique for swatching new paints.  If you didn’t go to art school, this is an easy way to pick up some fundamentals. The best part being it costs nothing.

If you want, you can download the Beginner’s Guide to Watercolor.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
