INSTRUCTOR: Jane Zdansky

Rose at 3 years old

Open to both beginners and experienced painters this 3 day acrylic painting workshop will consist of 4 segments, one devoted to landscape painting and three self-portrait segments. Each participant will go home with 2 framed paintings.

Segment 1, Landscape Painting

To help participants loosen their inhibitions about painting, participants will look to their surroundings for inspiration to produce an abstract landscape in acrylic paint. Participants will be taught basic colour theory (the colour wheel), about colour tones and colour values, how to handle a brush, etc.

Segment 2,  Drawing a Self-Portrait

Introducing the importance of observation in art, this drawing session will be based on drawing a self-portrait.  Facial proportions, line, form, light and shade will be studied using pen/pencils and paper.  Blind drawing will be introduced as a tool to strengthen hand-eye coordination.

Segment 3, Painting a Self-Portrait

Using acrylic paint on prepared hard board masonite, participants will be asked to paint a self-portrait. Basic colour theory (the colour wheel) will be reviewed and a focus on facial proportions, form, light and shade will help participants to produce a formal self-portrait. Self-portraits produced from this segment will be framed.

Segment 4, Painting an Abstract Self-Portrait

Participants will be encouraged to release their inner child and paint an abstracted self-portrait. Self-portraits produced from this segment will be framed.

FOLLOWING THE WORKSHOP WE WILL MOUNT AN EXHIBITION OF THE WORK.
