I am so excited to be returning to the Moose Mountain Provincial Park Artists’ Colony in Saskatchewan this August 6th – 15th, 2013. The ambiance for painting there is fantastic with the forests, lakes and cute little 1930’s stone artists’ cabins nestled to the east of the chalet. One will be my studio for that time frame and where I will greet students who are signed up for my classes. Class max. is 12 students so you may want to preregister by phone.
A few of the classes I taught last year, but I will be using new images this year for example in the acrylic beginner landscape and portrait classes. These will be step by step classes and materials are included. I am offering a completely new class also. Drawing the birds of Moose Mountain! The outdoor watercolour class is open to first time watercolourist but if you took this class with me last year, I will also be covering new techniques! In case of bad weather we will be painting in the cabin or possibly the chalet depending on the class registration, but we will meet at this cabin.
See you this summer!
