Service Description

SCHEDULING NOTE: because this class meets on Mondays, the 6 weeks will be interrupted by the VICTORIA DAY HOLIDAY (May 20). Take your art to a new level! Andrew Hamilton, one of our most highly regarded teachers, is adept at teaching all painting approaches and styles. You can "mix it up" and try your hand at mixed media, collage and mono printing. This course is designed for the intermediate to advanced artist but if you have limited experience, e.g., taken a previous art course, you are welcome. Don’t worry if you haven’t take Master Class in the past, you can join in! The six-week course will cover the following: CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS – talk about those pesky aspects of your work that you can’t seem to remedy, or perhaps find out that those issues are actually inviting you to paint a new way. TIPS AND TRICKS FOR PERSPECTIVE AND PLACEMENT — the X, Y and Z and other ways of working the canvas! INTRODUCING PEOPLE TO YOUR WORK — How and when and where? CHANNELING PAINTERS THAT YOU LOVE — Work on styling your work, based inspiration. Bring a sample master work for discussion. What is inspiring you? How can you integrate that inspiration into your own creations. TAKE ON THE NEW! This is a two-part class to finish the course wherein Andrew will guide you through painting a subject matter you have considered “too difficult”. Your choice of Media. SUPPLIES: Artists should bring materials and ready canvases or other substrates that they wish to use in this experimental and fun advanced studio. For the first class Andrew has suggested that you bring your regular painting supplies. Please do NOT bring CADMIUM PAINT COLOURS OR COBALT BLUE or solvents (for oil paint) with fumes because of their toxicity levels. For oil paints, linseed oil and/or baby oil is recommended.
