12 week class and 2 figure workshops


The next 2 months are busy ones for me as I start a new session of 12 week classes at Swinton's Art Studios in Calgary, as well as head off to teach a couple of figure workshops in BC and Alberta. 

After the free form, structureless existence of summer, it will be a change - but in a good way. I'm always more productive in my studio when I'm also doing some teaching. It sharpens my mind and helps me focus on what I want to accomplish when I work on those same things with my students.

The class: 

There is an unexpected opening in my 12 week class; life intruded on one of the registrants and she had to drop out.  We meet on Thursday afternoons beginning next week and will be focusing on plein air and figure as well as some independent subject days.  Contact me for specifics if you're interested. 

The workshops:

I'm teaching my popular "Painting the figure from Life" workshop in 2 provinces in September and October, and I'm excited at the opportunity!  This is always a stimulating experience for both the painters and me as we work on capturing the grace, proportion, and colours of the model in front of us.  

Both workshops will focus on alla prima paint application with an emphasis on layering and dynamic mark making.   We've had a cancellation in the Kelowna workshop, and the Cochrane workshop will be open for registration this week.  

If you're intrigued by the thought of an intensive and comprehensive 2 days of life painting, I hope you'll join me!
