C’est dans un cadre des plus motivants que nous tenterons ensemble de répondre à ces questions si cruciales à la pratique de l’art.

Exploring Acrylics & Oils: Intro-inter
This course focuses on the essential skills involved in painting with oils and acrylics. With the instructor’s guidance, students will work on projects of their own choice, learning painting techniques and gaining practical information. Formal issues concerning technique, colour and composition will be discussed in an enthusiastic and lively atmosphere.

2 models

Canvases: For classes 1,2, and 7 you will need a canvas or canvas board sized 12"x16", for class 8 and 9 you will need a canvas minimum size 18"x24", and the remaining classes the size of canvas depends on your project (I wouldn't go smaller than 18"x24").

Paints: For both acrylics and oils these are the colours I would recommend - Titanium white, ivory black, thalo blue, cadmium red light, alizarin crimson, cadmium yellow light, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, and burnt umber. Artist quality paints are best but you can use student paints. Avoid poster paints.

Brushes: Animal hair brushes (hog's hair) are best for oil paint and synthetic brushed are best for acrylic paint. I would get three brushes sized 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4".

Palettes: the main issue with palettes is size. You have to have enough room to mix your paints. You can get a large plastic palette or disposable palettes (I use a roll of wax paper).

Other: If you are using oil paints you will need odourless solvent for thinning your paint and cleaning your brushes. You will also need to bring containers for your solvents and water (for acrylics). Paper towels and rags for cleaning are always a good idea. Finally, it is useful to bring a pencil, vine charcoal and masking tape.

If you are unsure about what to bring, I will be discussing supplies in the first class.

New Printmaking: Intro-adv
In this class we will explore the concept of pop art through popular images using printmaking techniques; we will develop personal styles using techniques such as linocut, woodcut, etching, mixed media and collage.

This class is great for beginners in printmaking as well as experienced printmaking artists with non-typical ideas or people interested in pop art.
The idea of the class is to integrate printmaking techniques and qualities in your personal work. Unlike other print classes, this course is more focused on the aesthetic and visual possibilities of printmaking, and not the “hard rules”. This class is not about what you can't do, but is about all the different approaches of printmaking techniques.
