    OIL PAINT AND COLD WAX MEDIUM

     WITH DEE POISSON  

    Cold Wax Painting can be used in ALL types of painting styles, including landscape, abstract, still life.... anything from realism or abstraction, Experimentation, texture and the physicality of paint layers is the what Dee loves most about working with cold wax.

    Cold Wax medium is a dense paste, and lends itself to creating textures within a painting and allows for expressive brushmarks and the ability to carve into paint layers with palette knives. Cold Wax also gives oil colors a beautiful translucent quality, layered lightly working with transparent paints; a seductive surface similar to encaustic paintings can be achieved.

    WHIMISICAL PAINTINGS IN OIL OR ACRYLIC

    With Cindy Revell

    Indulge your creativity with a colourful adventure in art!   Learn how to see things from a more imaginative perspective, how to come up with ideas, and how to turn them into whimsical images. Your idea will be planned, sketched and refined on paper before you begin painting. We’ll use composition, value, colour and paint quality to take you from concept to a colourful whimsical painting. It will be a personal and relevant expression of you!

    Colour is one of the great joys of painting yet many artists do not truly understand how to create good colour. You will learn key elements to making great colour.

    Cindy will demonstrate using oils and will provide plenty of personal one on one instruction and encouragement. You should be familiar with the medium of your choice (oil or acrylic).  https://www.cindyrevell.com

    CREATE A BETTER PAINTING – 6 weeks

     With Margret Klappstein   

    This course will outline some of the basic principles and elements of good art and compositional tools to make a better painting while creating your own masterpiece.

    Margaret will be paying particular attention to creating a solid beginning. The initial block-in of compositional shapes can have an enormous effect on the progress of that painting; it can flow relatively smoothly or be a struggle all the way through.

    Create better paintings: by learning some of the principles and elements that make a painting better.  In this class you will cover some of the abstract principles of design and methods used to achieve them such as line, color, visual perspective (linear, aerial, value and color) and apply them to your own paintings. 

    This workshop is open to all levels.  There will be plenty of one on one instruction with time for positive and encouraging conversation.
