Emily Carr and Georgia O'Keeffe (B) | All Levels | Sat + Sun | Feb 11 + 12 | 9:30am-4:30pm, start date: 02/11/2023
Register Emily Carr and Georgia O'Keeffe may have met, but the record is unclear: these two masters from the first part of the 20th century followed very different paths. Working in quite distinct physical and cultural environments, both artists explored different styles and motifs throughout their careers. Some of Georgia O'Keefe's work was controversial in her time, whilst Emily Carr found little support for her style of modernism until later in life. Whether inspired by powerful floral and surreal southwestern motifs, or the mysteries of Pacific peoples and the Canadian wilderness, let’s explore the contribution of these two giants of 20th century North American art. In each session, David will be demonstrating key aspects throughout and participants will be able to create a painting from scratch or equally, bring along a work-in-progress. Individual coaching will be provided and participants are welcome to use the medium of their choice. Appeals to realist, impressionist and modernist painters alike.
Oil, acrylic, watercolour, and pastel artists are all welcome!
Materials not included.

Bien que l’atelier se déroule en anglais, un suivi individuel en français est possible.

Two of Seven: Lawren Harris and MacDonaldMacD. MacDonald (B) | All Levels | Sat + Sun | March 11 + 12 | 9:30am-4:30pm, start date: 03/18/2023
Register Lawren Harris provided much of the vision, energy and resources behind the Group of Seven. J.E.H. MacDonald, the elder statesman of the group, was perhaps the artistic rock.

Whether inspired by Harris's stark landscapes of the Canadian North or the more lyrical style of MacDonald, join us for a weekend in the company of the Group of Seven. In each session, David will be demonstrating key aspects throughout and participants will be able to create a painting from scratch or equally, bring along a work-in-progress.
