On a guided tour through Gairloch Gardens, students will observe, record and collect examples of the colours, shapes and textures specific to the current season. Taking their findings back to the studio, they will make a large scale watercolour crayon painting incorporating their found materials to depict the garden in its seasonal glory. After reviewing the visual characteristics of the different seasons, students will fold and cut warm and cool hues of paper that will be used to add sculptural details to their paintings.
