the Horizon": Experimental approaches using acrylic paints, mediums,
This five-day workshop
focuses on extending the boundaries and fundamentals of painting-on-site
with acrylics. Depending on weather and studio direction of a particular
day, the group will work at a different location in the historical town
of Lunenburg. The instructor, who stresses a personal connection with
each participant, will review composition, collage, and mixed medias,
colour mixing and glazes, brush work and more. Although the instructor
encourages an experimental approach to the subject at hand, it is not
to the exclusion of traditional approaches. Participants are free to
design their "scapes" in any manner or fashion, such as a
panoramic series of images, a combination of imaginary "scapes,"
collaged "scapes" as well as other ideas that emerge during
the workshop. enrolment is limited to 12; please send files of your
work to the instructor
