This class will challenge participants to explore new ways of image making with an emphasis on texture and movement. We’ll discuss how shapes, texture and colours can communicate ideas, emotions and thoughts, focusing on Canada from an abstract point of view. Come and stretch your experimenting skills and learn new ways of pushing and cutting into paint, resulting in bold and dazzling effects.
Hour 1: Intro and demonstrations on paper, participants familiarize themselves with the paint and tools.
Hour 2: Participants practice a bit on paper and begin their paintings when comfortable, discussion as a group about Canada and their thoughts and memories. I speak to each person individually.
Hour 3: Everyone completes a painting and discussion continues. Reflection and outro.
