The new year will be full of painting explorations in my Tuesday afternoon class at the Calgary School of Art.
We meet from 12:30 - 3:30 every Tuesday from January 5 - March 22.
The outline that I composed says it all, so I've pasted it here:
Join Ingrid for 12 weeks of oil painting that includes both structured and independent work.
We will begin with 7 weeks of still life because there is no better way to learn to paint than from life. Our focus will be on creating dynamic compositions, and painting fabric, reflective surfaces, florals and a variety of textures. Whether you are a studio or outdoor painter, prefer landscape, or other subject matter, the skills that you develop in this section will transcend genre and enhance your overall painting practise.
The remaining 5 weeks will be independent subject, allowing you to work from any references you prefer. Painters may bring in photos, or sketches, or continue working from still life set ups in the studio. Ingrid will work with individuals at whatever stage their work is at; providing instruction and demoes to help painters progress.
This course will include both group and individual demonstrations and instruction with the aim of developing each painter's individual style and aesthetic, and encouraging exploration and risk taking.
Suitable for painters with minimal experience to advanced.
I hope to see you there!
