GELLIPLATE MONO PRINTING WORKSHOP
with artist Suzanne Metz

Friday, October 25th
10AM – 4PM

Cost: $165 + HST – Registration

Come play for a day using an easy fun “start” to what could be the beginning of some beautiful little gems. We will work on 8 x 10” paper and produce lots – nothing will go to waste as the “rejects” can/should be used for collage. We will learn the basics of the gelliplate, adding layers and then excavating and digging a little deeper.
I have the plates for you to use and try out.
A small material list will be sent to you in advance of the workshop.

 


 

EMBRACING COLOUR
with artist Rebecca Reynolds

Friday, November 1st 
10AM – 4PM

Cost: $165 + HST – Registration

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”

– Anais Nin

Come join me as we explore colour through a variety of fun and unconventional exercises. Each activity will encourage you to take risks and use bold colour choices in new and exciting ways. We will be inspired by a number of contemporary painters (such as Jennifer Lefort, Amy Sillman and Pia Fries) whose work embraces exuberant colour. Finally, we will discuss the relationships between colours, how to choose your palette to set the desired mood, and how to balance multiple colours while still having your piece feel cohesive. This course will be useful to both beginner and experienced painters alike.

LARGE CANVAS WORKSHOP
with artist Suzanne Metz

Friday, November 22nd
10AM – 4PM

Cost: $165 + HST – Registration

The approach is exploratory. Working from the nonverbal right brain, the subconscious and the spirit, we will take a day-by-day journey to make the invisible visible and give form to the formless.  The essence of this workshop is the art-making process.  It is exactly this journey and experience that will push you further into your practice.

We will explore different exercises that will free you from fear and allow you to bring out your personal voice.  We will learn to move in ways that allow for the freedom you need to extend yourself and the mindfulness to shut out your inner critic and let your self emerge.

In this workshop we will be working on large sheets of paper and some large unstretched canvas.

A detailed material list will be sent after enrollment.
