In my workshops you can expect a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Students of all levels are welcome — if you’re a beginner, you’ll learn as much from watching the people around you as from me. If you’re looking to deepen your understanding of acrylics, develop a more creative, spontaneous approach or just reinvigorate your practice, these workshops will meet your needs. I’ll do some brief demonstrations to show you how I use layering and acrylic mediums and I’ll show you slides of other artists’ work to stir your imagination. Most of the time you’ll be painting while I move around the room making sure everyone gets the individual attention they need. We’ll end with a group critique where you’ll learn to assess your own work in progress and decide what to do next when you’re working on a painting.

The Rideau Lakes Artists’ Association presents:

Acrylics and Collage

Get ready to be creative and have fun! Using torn paper from magazines students will use collage to add colour, texture and a bit of quirkiness to their acrylic paintings. I’ll present a slide show for inspiration showing how other artists have incorporated collage into their work.

To register, please contact the Rideau Lakes Artists Association.
