I’m excited and honoured to be joining the amazing faculty at Toronto School of Art, and will be teaching 2 in-person classes this fall, starting the week of October 4th.
This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of painting. Working primarily from direct observation of still life arrangements, as well as through demos and slide presentations, students will learn about painting materials, value, colour, composition and most importantly, how to forget what we think we know and paint what we see! The course will be taught in oils but acrylics are welcome.
Starts Wednesday May 5th 2-5pm for 8 weeks.
Urban Landscape Painting
This course will introduce students to the tradition and practice of urban landscape painting. We will explore historic and contemporary approaches to painting the dynamic landscape of urban space. Working from sketches and photographic reference, students will learn how to capture the essential aspects of a chosen scene and solve the problems of perspective, light and form, use of colour, paint application and composition.
Starts Wednesday May 5th 6-9pm for 8 weeks.
