FULL: Painting Tom Thomson: A Colourist's Legacy (Sat/Sun Jan 25/26 9am - 4pm)
Learn much about the application of twentieth-century colour theory through a Canadian passionate about painting. Thomson’s approach can be used for realistic subject matter and equally as a method for abstraction of the image or pure abstraction. Using Thomson’s colours, you will paint with vibrancy and life in the style of your choice. Through his use of coloured grounds, simplified shapes and textured brushwork, you will learn to design through flat shape in one large and several small paintings. Oil (no solvent) or acrylic. All levels.

Your Ticket to Lawren Harris' Wilderness (Sat/Sun Mar 7/8 9:30am - 4:30pm)
Register Follow in the footsteps of the Group of Seven for a sketching and painting expedition in the Canadian wilderness. Create dry media and paint sketches using sound practices as they apply to the Canadian landscape: composition, simplification, colour and value - with a modernist edge! During annual trips to the north shore of Lake Superior, Lawren Harris lead members of the group and evolved the style the Group of Seven is best known for: rich, decorative colours melding with deeply-felt perceptions of nature. Whether inspired by the stark and mystical landscapes of Lawren Harris, the lyrical styles of J.E.H. MacDonald and Arthur Lismer or the consummate paint mastery of A.Y. Jackson, join us for a weekend in the company of the most legendary group of Canadian painters.

Limitless Colour (Sat/Sun Mar 28/29 9:30am - 4:30pm)
Register Paintings are invariably more than they seem. This workshop explains how colours work together in practice and develops some key approaches, such as demystifying 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. Participants will be able to develop a painting in the medium of their choice. For beginners, the workshop will establish touchstone practices and accelerate artistic development. More experienced artists will come away with the confidence to develop new palettes, techniques and also 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 remarked: “Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.”
