Yes!! Our second Cityscape workshop. The first one was a big success. Everyone was amazed at the outstanding work they created during the workshop. City scenes launch our paintings because they can include so many different elements. Buildings, trees, transportation, skies, people... your imagination is the limit. What is most important is to experiment and play with form, colour and layering. You will create a painting starting with the sketch of a city scene, using markers, collage and photo transfer to complete your painting by the end of Sunday.
I love this workshop because everyone's results can be different from each other. Some want to draw an exact replica of a scene, while others want to work from a fantasy place. Following your creative desire is encouraged.
During the last workshop, some students brought ipads or laptops in order to work from a picture they like. Other's worked from a printed photograph from their own collection. I will have some city scenes available that are both inspiring and accessible for all levels. YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DRAW to enjoy this workshop.
I always work on board - never canvas. If you want to work on gallery quality birchboard canvas please bring these to class. I will be providing small boards for experimenting.
Please bring a sketchbook, felt pens, pencil and sharpener/eraser and apron. The rest of the supplies will be included.
Saturday & Sunday, Oct 17 & 18, 2020. 1 - 5pm Cost: $150
LIMITED SPACE available - max 10 students. We will be following all recommendations to stay safe, including wearing masks.
I am so excited for this, as it will be the first workshop dedicated specifically to young people! I want to support the next generation who has had to put up with such a crazy world these days! I want to offer a joyous place to create where complete self-expression is encouraged and accepted. If I can supply a place for 10 teens to relax, be themselves and express feelings they may have about life these days - then I will rejoice!
I will be showing lots of techniques that I use, but also, students will show and share things they have learned along the way. It will be a very collaborative approach. You bring: sketchbook. felt pens - like sharpies, pencils you like and a sharpener. I supply the rest!
Some techniques we will explore are: painting with ink & acrylic. Collage and Ink transfer. Linocut printmaking. Wax layering. Expect multiple activities to be happening at once. Embrace variety and experimentation.

Art is the...
great connector of people, places and dreams. It speaks the language of the heart when it is authentic and created from an open and non-judgemental space. It is passionate pursuit of creation with a playful mind.
