Join me for a wonderful in-depth, weeknight workshop at Alberta College of Art and Design, July 25 – 29, 2011 as part of the extended studies offered at ACAD. Check out the online ACAD Spring and Summer Workshop brochure.

Take the time to immerse yourself in your art. You deserve it! In the “Glazing & Grounds Workshop” 8 week-long course, you will experience the philosophy and practice of the masters, from composition to foundational underpainting, to final glazing techniques and colour mixing. You will learn how to create paintings that glow from the inside out. You will spend a short time in studio demos, lectures and presentations with the instructor, then you’ll have the chance to try it out, step by step. Working from still life, you will learn how to focus on values, create a grisaille, define light and complete a painting. You will also learn how to stretch and finish a fine Belgian linen canvas. And of course…a healthy dose of fun, stimulating conversation and artistic community-building as always!

Program will run Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 9:00 pm starting May 4th – June 22nd.

Course Fee: $299.00 + GST Course Number: 45053
