First Thursdays: watercolour workshop for beginners
Join Ferry Building Gallery exhibiting artist Daniela Ocaña for a watercolour workshop for beginners.
Participants will paint a pot in order to learn how to make contrasts and round shapes using one colour to find different values within one object. All materials will be supplied.
This workshop is part of the First Thursdays Art Walk.
The gallery will be open to the public from 6–8 p.m. with the exhibition THE COLOURS OF SUCCESS, mixed media by Maya Corona, Sharina Fong, and Daniela Ocaña, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico.

About the artist
Daniela Ocaña studied watercolour at the Museo de La Acuarela del Estado de México, completed a Diploma in Museum Studies at the Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Mexico, and studied art at the Forum Art Center and at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
Inspired by her Mexican family traditions and encouraged to pursue her artistic talents, Daniela is quickly gaining recognition for her Mexican painting style, which provide a powerful insight into the history and traditions of Mexican Culture. Her artwork is characterized by the freedom of expression using the flow of the watercolour medium, achieving dark tones that contrast with the colour explosion represented by the Mexican traditions.
