Welcome to the brand new Basic Drawing Skills Blog. Does it look familiar? All the posts have been imported from blogspot but it’s now all contained on my own web site making it much more convenient to find out what’s going on in my art world. This blog is still dedicated to celebrating the work of the students in this class. I hope you’ll take a minute to check out some of the other pages as well as the two blogs.
If you have any feedback or would like information please contact me.
My new class, Mastering Colour, will be starting April 5, 2011 and will run for 6 weeks. This is a class for people who are intimidated by colour and colour theory or feel they would like to be more confident in colour choices. The demos will be done in watercolour and acrylic though painters in all media can equally benefit from learning to master their colours. Each class will involve 2 sections, 1) studying some aspect of colour and 2) doing a painting based on our knowledge of colour.
A supply list and further information will be available shortly at the Calgary School Of Art web site.
For information or to register for this class please contact me.
The winter session of Basic Drawing Skills has just finished and I’m thrilled by the progress made by the students. It’s a real pleasure just to be associated with this learning. If you look at the pre-test that was done in the first class before any instruction and then look at the self portrait done at the very end you will see the incredible progress that everyone made. It’s inspiring to see this happen. I have to also thank everyone who took this class for the wonderful, positive atmosphere that permeated each class each week. It was a pleasure to be associated with this.
