Painting Your Way Out of a Corner / Peindre avec confiance: L'art de la résolution de problèmes - All Levels / tous les niveaux (B)
Register In the tradition of The Artist’s Way, by American author Julia Cameron, this exciting weekend workshop will introduce painting as a jumping-off point for realizing one’s full creative potential in all areas of life. Using brushstrokes instead of words, participants will create a painting journal that relies on improvisation and imagination to overcome obstacles and find new solutions that often seem out of reach. Through a series of exercises that emphasize improvisation and risk-taking, participants will learn how to quiet their inner critics and strengthen their creativity. The more we learn to play and accept whatever appears on the page, the more we are able to try new things in life! Some materials are included in the course fee.

Suivant la philosophie du livre « The Artist’s Way », de l’auteure américaine Julia Cameron, cet atelier passionnant vous révélera comment la peinture peut devenir un point de départ pour réaliser son plein potentiel créatif dans tous les domaines de la vie. En utilisant les coups de pinceau au lieu des mots, les participants créeront un cahier de peinture faisant appel à l’improvisation et l’imagination pour surmonter les obstacles et trouver de nouvelles solutions qui semblent souvent hors de portée. Grâce à une série d’exercices mettant l’accent sur l’improvisation et la prise de risque, les participants apprendront à atténuer leurs critiques intérieures et à renforcer leur créativité. Plus nous apprenons à jouer et accepter ce qui apparaît sur notre page, plus nous sommes en mesure d’essayer de nouvelles choses dans notre vie! Certains matériaux sont inclus dans le prix du cours.

Drawing the Head from A to Z (Mon & Wed, 1 - 4 pm)
Register The key to a good portrait drawing is a good understanding of the 3D shape of an object, in this case, of a human head. At the start of the course, students will draw the human skull in various positions, which is very helpful for the understanding of the bone structure underneath the soft tissue. Plaster casts give a good opportunity to learn the shape of the human head on a static model without distractions such as hair, colour and tone. A live model will be present during the final three sessions, allowing students to practice and apply the skills they have learned throughout the course.

Limitless Colour (Thurs, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm)
Register Paintings are invariably more than they seem. This short course explains how colours work together in practice and develops some key approaches, such as demystifying colour and mixing for experienced artists and beginners alike. Instruction and coaching will include sound colour theory and a major part will be its application in practical art. For beginners, it will establish touchstone practices and accelerate artistic development. More experienced artists will come away with the confidence to develop new palettes, techniques and break rules with aplomb. Colour takes paintings to giddy heights or sends them to the depths with little in between, the consummate impressionist Claude Monet remarking: “Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.”

9 am - 4 pm Marathon Drawing (Sun, 9 am - 4 pm)
Register Inspired by the New York Studio School and RISD drawing marathon intensives, this class will challenge students to commit themselves to the practice of drawing for a 9-5 work day. This weekend intensive places all students on a common playing field. The class begins by investigating core fundamentals of contour line, value, weight and mark making. Through a whirlwind of fast paced exercises, the drawing intensive class dives into more complex assignments and explorations. Students, confident, advanced or beginners will be forced to step out of their comfort zones and abandon ego and look at their own drawing and art as if they were a stranger to the process. Old habits and comfort ruts will be broken and students will have no choice to push themselves to progress and evolve. The class will work from an elaborate still life and use a variety of drawing materials ranging from charcoal to ink…or even from yardsticks to fingers. By the end of the class, students will have been through a vast gamut of activities that they will undoubtedly have a profound confidence in their drawing fundamentals and ability to assess composition with an advanced degree of mark making, history of value and composition.
