Join Anne in this 5-day exploration of art techniques!

With daily creative exercises, Anne teaches different fine art techniques like varied brushstrokes, texture, collage, painterly effects, flat and dynamic paint application, and colour theory. We delve into a variety of styles and subject matter every day, from abstract compositions, triptychs, drawing and painting from life, and smooth realism.

Each day begins with a simple sketchbook warmup to get the creative juices flowing. We start off on familiar ground – on the first day, we’ll get used to the materials by painting our favourite cartoon character! Next, we move on to abstract collage and discover just how texture can be used to create successful compositions. Then, on the third day, drawing from what’s before us, we start working from life and learn to perceive beauty in the everyday “ugly.” On day four, we explore the power of the complementary colour match and observational painting to create a cacti triptych. Finally, on our last day, combining all the techniques we’ve learned, we paint a portrait of your pet, or any animal of your choosing!

This class is geared towards kids who are passionate about art and looking for instruction that isn’t boring or too crafty. Learn real principles and elements of art while having fun in a creative and welcoming setting!
