    PAINTING THE LIVING LANDSCAPE

     in Pastels

    with Sharon Bamber

     

    Painting with Emotion

    NOTE: This workshop is appropriate for beginner and intermediate pastel painters. Painters in other media may also find this workshop of interest, but Sharon will not be able to help with the medium-specific technical aspects of non-pastel media.

    Let go of whatever fears you may have and paint with honesty! While Sharon paints a demo demonstrating her process, she will discuss the key points to producing successful work every time you step outside. Find your concept, simplify your process and hold true to your vision until completion. The focus of the workshop will be on process over product, in learning to see in new and dynamic ways and working simply, directly, and with confidence.

    2 day workshop: Saturday Sept.9/Sunday Sept.10

    9am – 5pm

          Cost: Member $100        Non Member       $125

    'THE ART OF BUSINESS: FINANCIAL SUCCESS' FOR THE ARTIST'

    with David Langevin


    The most elusive skill set for the artists has nothing to do with creativity or painting techniques.  it is more related to business and marketing.  Strategies for achieving financial success for artists are rarely taught, written or spoken about in artistic circles.  Moreover, most of the ideas and schemes artists employ are ineffective.  This is clearly evident by the results.  Artists are among the lowest income earners of all professions.

    Strategies for achieving financial success in the art market are actually much simpler and easier to implement than we have been led to believe.

    DAVID LANGEVIN has been a professional full time artist for over 25 years.  With this presentation, talk and discussion, David will help clear up a few myths and misconceptions about the Art of Business. 

    Friday September 15 2017. 7pm - 9pm

    Fee:  Members $ 25             Non Members $30

    SKYLINES AND SUNSETS

    WATERCOLOUR WORKSHOP

    with Gregg Johnson

       

    The fall class will focus on our beautiful Edmonton skyline, but there are other skylines which sit on bodies of water have beautiful reflections as a result---Seattle, Vancouver, New York.  So the potential for some fun with rectangular shapes and a variety of skylines is unlimited.

    "UNDERSTANDING ACRYLICS"

    with Brent Laycock

     

    This workshop is designed to help both new and experienced artists unlock the potential of acrylic paint. Understanding how acrylics work can empower you to achieve exciting results.

    The class will include technical instruction on the use of the various mediums, gels and types of paint, viscosity and transparency.  Other principles that help with colour mixing, composition and solving problems will be addressed.  The program will tailored to meet the particular needs of the participants. 

    In addition, Brent Laycock will share the ideas and techniques that infuse his unique approach to painting landscapes and florals with acrylics.
