Looking at the works of Dutch masters for inspiration, we will be learning about paint handling, colour mixing, and creating shape and drama. We will also discuss glazing and how to unify paintings and create strong focal points.

Students will go home with an 8×10 canvas detail of a Dutch Still Life botanical.

No experience required.

A $10 kit fee is payable to the instructor at the beginning of class.

Led by artist Eileen MacArthur.

We will be using a reduction method to make a dramatic still life drawing, working with glass and reflective objects as our subject and learning about value, composition, highlights and shape. This class gets messy so please dress appropriately!

Painting in the Dark! Plein Air at Night with Eileen MacArthur

May 2 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

How about this for a Saturday night? This is plein air in the dark!

We will be working outside with watercolour and brush pen, but with the added twist of seeing the landscape and our palettes, limited by the lack of light. We won’t really know what the paintings looks like until the end of the evening, when we head back inside and take a look in the light of the classroom.

Artists are required to bring their own sketchbooks.  A $10 kit fee is payable to the instructor at the start of class.

Please meet at the Elora Centre for the Arts to sign in and then we will head out at dusk.
