Summer/Fall Short Term Courses 2019



With artist Steve Rose

Tuesday, July 2nd – Friday, July 5th
10AM – 4PM

Cost: $450 + HST + Model Fee – Registration

Utilizing the figure in the landscape can be very effective in powerful painting in both historical and contemporary fine art practice.
With this in mind the workshop will focus on the morning’s activity creating strong compositions based on landscape and/or still life inspired by great masters past and present. The afternoons will be dedicated to placing the models poses either partial or full figure into these works.
Initial active grounds may be a single source or a hybrid of diverse inspiration from artists such as David Hockney, Matisse, Richard Diebenkorn, and Kim Dorland.
Please join us for a unique creative experience that will be exciting, challenging and that will evoke something new and different!

Still Life Painting
with special guest artist

Christopher Broadhurst

September 17th – 19th
10 – 4 PM

Cost: $350 + HST – Registration

Join guest artist Christopher Broadhurst in the ArteMbassy Studio for a three – day workshop using beautiful Japanese kimonos as our point of reference. This workshop will provide the painter with exercises in composition and colour while stretching and expanding your painting style.

 For the painter with more experience, it will furnish an opportunity to explore and render the sumptuous and intricately patterned surfaces of these wonderful garments.

For painters at all levels of experience, the structure of the kimonos themselves will suggest the basic form compositions might take… along with the addition of a few other, very simple still life elements.
Treat yourself to this rare and very special opportunity to work with Christopher.
