Having Fun! Henschel Fine Arts

“We have so much fun at these Workshops they should be called Playshops!

Learning should be a pleasurable experience and I work hard to make my Playshops entertaining.”

G. Henschel

Far back in one of his other lifetimes, Gordon obtained a Master’s Degree in Education. The payoff for his students can be summed up in one word: “success”

Two and five day Playshops are the most common but other lengths can be accommodated. Usually a mixture of beginning artists and those with some experience works out rather well.

Watercolour Playshops are the most requested but Acrylic or Oil Painting Playshops are also available.
For up and coming playshop dates and places check this page often. For playshop inquiries and/or bookings call 250-956-3539 and let’s talk about some possibilities.

Vancouver Island Painting Workshops

Water Media Playshops

The water media play-shops include painting in four media: transparent watercolour, opaque watercolour (gouache), acrylic and casein. Demonstrations and instructions will not only include how to use each medium individually but integrating them in the same painting.

It will be at the participant’s discretion whether he or she would like to practice painting in all the four mediums as well as watch the demonstrations or perhaps just concentrate on one or two. In any case, he or she will need to have at least the basic materials for each medium. They are listed under each of the four mediums. To find them just click on any one of the four: Watercolour, Gouache, Acrylic, or Casein. Below Outline and Material Lists for Playshops

Playshop Testimonials

Just a note to let you know that the watercolor playshop was an outstanding experience truly memorable and exciting. Of my many trips in all directions, I rank it right up there at the top, aligned with seeing polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba. Make of that what you will! Believe me, it's a compliment!

Really wanted to thank-you so very much for a wonderful week of lessons and for taking us to your studio. What a treat! I love it up there on Vancouver Island and would like to spend much of my summer there.

To Ann & Gordon: Just a few words to thank you both (& your staff) for a great playshop week at Telegraph Cove. I really enjoyed it all - most instructive-relaxing and full of good companionship...Am now rested up and hope to get around to some real painting now I know how.

After taking the memorable Watercolor playshop at Telegraph Cove in May, I have visited your website periodically to admire the new paintings and to read the insightful comments about them. If anyone out there is considering taking the watercolor course, don't hesitate! DO IT! Even if your paintbrush fails you, the experience will bring you joy!
