Drawing: What do you see? - Intro/Inter
This course will explore fundamental drawing techniques while working from direct observation. Unlike drawing from photographs, this approach allows you to have creative control while fully experiencing your subject, which significantly increases all of the visual possibilities of an image. Students will explore a range of drawing media through projects that will improve gestural confidence, hand-eye coordination, and the visual "editing" of information. Some of the techniques covered include: blocking in and composition, perspective, shading (cross-hatching, chiaroscuro, blending, drawing with an eraser, etc.), ink washes, and working with texture. No prior experience necessary.

Drawing: What do you see? - Intro/Inter
Register This course will explore fundamental drawing techniques while working from direct observation. Unlike drawing from photographs, this approach allows you to have creative control while fully experiencing your subject, which significantly increases all of the visual possibilities of an image. Students will explore a range of drawing media through projects that will improve gestural confidence, hand-eye coordination, and the visual "editing" of information. Some of the techniques covered include: blocking in and composition, perspective, shading (cross-hatching, chiaroscuro, blending, drawing with an eraser, etc.), ink washes, and working with texture. No prior experience necessary. The course is open to new as well as returning students.

Oil or Acrylic Landscape Painting: Grow Your Art - Inter/Adv
Register To grow in art we need to challenge ourselves. We need to try different palettes and 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 primary source of inspiration. We will try limited palettes, different sizes, and 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 the 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.

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.
