Spring 2018 Workshops

I've just finalized my workshop schedule for the spring 2018 season!

All workshops take place in the cottage at Cedarvale Park, Georgetown Ontario.  Contact Christy or Credit Valley Artisans to secure your place.

Ad hoc workshops also available.  Come out and paint with me, whether you would like a studio experience (painting from a photograph), or an introduction to painting the Canadian landscape outdoors.  Just shoot me a message and we'll find time.  All levels welcome!

1) Oil Painting 101
Sundays in February-March:  Feb 18, Feb 25, Mar 4.  1-4 pm.
Beginner - Intermediate
Cost $100 (CVA members $90)

Bring a photo of your favourite vacation spot, your home town, or any landscape that speaks to you, and Christy will help you turn it into a painting to treasure.  Christy will tailor the lessons to your experience level, covering topics such as composition, brush techniques, and colour mixing - or just how to start!, to more advanced problem solving.

2) Intro to Painting for Kids 5-12
Saturdays in February - March: Feb 17, and 24, Mar  3.  1- 3 pm.
Acrylic (oil also supported).  Materials provided.
Cost $50

Children will work over three weeks to create one or two paintings of a favourite place or treasured object - and so they are encouraged to bring in something that they would like to use for subject matter.  Christy will act as a coach with children but always stresses that they make their own decisions and truly own their painting, as she sees art lessons as a tool to build children's confidence and have fun!

3) Fix-It Day
Saturday March 24, 9 am - 12 pm
Oil or acrylic
Beginner - Intermediate
Cost $30 (CVA members $25)

Do you have artwork sitting in a naughty pile, or thrown in the basement?  Paintings that were great ideas but got stuck?  Come out for this session to find out how they can be resuscitated - and fix them on the spot.  Christy will help with drawing or compositional errors, colour and value problems, or ideas for how to add that special spark.  Later we'll share what we learned with the class, so everyone can learn from the roadblocks that trip us all up!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Yours in paint,
