Illustrative Watercolour II/III (Tuesday Aft) with Dwayne James
Tuesday 11-2 pm

Have you ever wanted to create hyper-detailed, illustrative watercolours that enhance or even warp reality? It’s surprisingly easy, especially if you can take advantage of science and technology in the planning stages.

In this ten week course, you will be guided through the planning and production of an illustrative, photo-realistic watercolour painting that is based on your own choice of subjects. You will be encouraged to use your imagination and create a finished image that is based on a real subject, but changes it in unique ways that couldn’t be captured with conventional photography.

Most of you have been taught to paint what you see; this course will teach you to paint what you want to see.

Hyper Realism - Oil Painting (Wednesday Evenings)
with Alex Bierk

Wednesday 6-9 p.m.

Offering students with any level of experience an opportunity to learn how to paint using the grid technique - using black and white oil paint to transfer a source image onto canvas. The class is as much about teaching the process as it is how to paint. The first source image will be provided after which students can choose to use their own source material as they continue on. Previous students that have started a portrait can continue to paint and complete their painting in this class.

This process is very detailed, but highly successful.

It is mandatory that all new students attend the first week as canvases will be given out and prep work for painting will be given, and students will have a tour of Alex's Studio. Please come with a pencil and ruler first week.

Material Fee - $70
(for Canvas and printing) Students still need to purchase brushes and paints

Please register by Sept 15th to allow time for material preparation.

If you have taken one of Paul’s classes before or are just looking for some guidance on how to bring your acrylic landscape paintings to the next level, this class is for you.

This course will consist mainly of students working on their own landscape paintings under the close guidance and direction of Paul. Students can either bring in a blank canvas with photos or sketches prepared to begin a new piece or continue a newly started or unfinished work that needs some encouraging.

Periodically throughout the course Paul will discuss technique, colour, design, etc. along with short demos that will be relevant to the students work. Students will receive plenty of one to one time with Paul throughout each class and will be able to proceed at their own pace.

This course isn’t intended for beginners but rather those that have at the very least some rudimentary knowledge and experience with painting.  By no means do you need to be a master. Just bring your supplies, your enjoyment of painting and whatever experience you have and Paul will ensure your growth as an artist and a deepening of the joy of painting.
