Paint Like Tom Thomson
Tom Thomson was the painter of many of Canada’s most iconic artworks. His experiments in colour and technique resulted in vibrant groundbreaking works such as The Jack Pine and The West Wind. In this workshop, we’ll learn about Tom Thomson, his working methods, and paint a homage to Tom Thomson's piece (or pieces). Apart from working from a specific Thomson painting, students have the option of painting from an image they provide which they will paint in the Thomson style. The suggested medium is acrylic (or oil).

Painting Water in Watercolour
Frequent requests in watercolour classes have encouraged me to offer this workshop on the subject of water.

In this class, we'll learn specific techniques and practice samples of a variety of water surfaces and actions.

Introduction to Linocut Printmaking
This workshop introduces participants to the basics of relief printmaking using linoleum.

The workshop offers an in-depth look at the materials and techniques used to make fine art linocut prints.
