School of Art Opening
The Grand Opening of the Calgary School of Art was great fun.
The food and wine were abundant and lots of people showed up.
The demos showcased the great variety of art that will be taught at the school: oil and watercolour painting, palette knife painting, encaustic, abstract mixed media and more. It was stimulating stuff, not least because there was a drawing demo with an unflappable, nude model.
My course begins on Tuesday afternoon at 1pm and I still have a couple of openings for anyone who wants to give oils a try. We'll be starting with still life work and I'm excited to see what people do with it. Hopefully there will be lots of unique takes on the same set up of objects and fabrics. I'll keep you posted!
