2018 Workshops Schedule

SEPT / OCT 2018 WORKSHOP SCHEDULE:

Open to all levels, even if you have never painted before!

LEARNING TO SEE IN SHAPES ANIMAL PORTRAIT WORKSHOP

Oct 13 and 14 (limited to 5 students). Held in my home studio in Saskatoon.
In this workshop you will learn the oil techniques that I use when I do a painting, including jumping right into the painting without a preliminary drawing, learning to see shapes and values and improving your "drawing" skills. You will work from a photo that I provide and paint a portrait of an animal. The fee for this workshop will be $250 ($225 for art studioblog members) plus GST which includes your canvas. If you don't have your own oil painting supplies, you can use my paints, brushes and materials for an additional $20 material fee. 10 AM to 4 PM each day. Call 306-850-8988 or Book Now by paying a $100 deposit:

RETREAT STYLE WORKSHOPS

Held in my home studio in Saskatoon.
By spending a little bit more time, we will be able to delve more into colour mixing and choosing backgrounds, as well as have more time to work on your own specific problems with your paintings. I have room for three overnight guests (one private and one shared room) as well as two additional people who want to participate in the workshop but don't need to stay overnight. The fee for this workshop will be $795 ($695 for blog members) plus GST and that includes your workshop fee, three nights accommodation, meals and snacks every day (with a small up charge of $25 for reserving the private room). For participants who are not staying overnight, the fee (which still includes meals) will be $695 ($595 for blog members) plus GST. The retreat workshop will run 3 1/2 days, beginning in the afternoon on Thursday (to allow for travel time in case you're coming in from out of town), Friday, Saturday and will end earlier on Sunday for those who want to travel home on that day. I can teach you the workshop mentioned above, how to paint a portrait of your own pet in, or you can bring your own paintings and work on them (either oil or acrylics). There will be plenty of opportunity for everyone to get individual attention creating the workshop experience that is best for you. I will have some canvases available for purchase if you would like to work on the same canvas I use.

I am scheduling two of these retreats, the first one Sept 20-23,(only one spot remaining) and the second one Oct 25-28, (limited to 5 students). Call 306-850-8988 or Book Now by paying a $100 Deposit: For the Sept 20-23 retreat:
