This class is not about what you can't do, but is about all the different approaches of printmaking techniques.

Outdoor & Indoor Landscape Painting - Inter
Register Do you have some painting experience but are unsure of where to go next? Have you ever been out ‘plein air’ painting, or have you dreamed about being confident enough to do it? This class will start at the studio for the first week, then as long as the weather is permitting we will take ourselves outside, probably to Petrie Island or the Rockcliffe Parkway Gazebo. Once, or if the weather is forbidding (rain, cold), we can bring our ‘plein air’ sketches inside and work them up into larger studio paintings. Our goal will be to keep the outdoor spontaneity in a studio painting. Acrylics or oil paint.

Oil or Acrylic Landscape Painting: Growing Your Art - Inter/Adv
Register To grow in art we need to challenge ourselves. We need to try different palettes, canvas sizes. We need to simplify. Since we live in a northern climate, ‘plein air’ painting is more limited, making it necessary to work from photos as our primate source of inspiration. We will try limited palettes, different sizes, palette knife painting, all in an effort to achieve less detail and more painterly paintings. There will be class demos, and if desired, time to work on your own projects with one-on-one guidance. We really only have a short time together each term, but some things that are covered throughout a year are: scumbling, brushwork, glazing and washes, colour harmony, perspective, reflections, clouds, rocks, and people in the landscape. Students will be encouraged to push their limits.
