Teaching and Demonstrating

Teaching and Demonstrating

August 5th, 2018
Opus, Granville Island

After graduating from art school (where no one demonstrated anything – no kidding!)  I took some drawing and painting classes with Canadian Painter (and War Artist) Sam Black. He was an awesome teacher.  In fact he won the Governor General’s Award for Teaching. At the center of his teaching method was the ‘demo’ . He had clear concepts – He could articulate and demonstrate them – he was fearless!

I decided THAT was worth doing and I have endeavored to emulate Sam for all my career. Here are some of my in-class demonstration pieces. The foundation for me is perspective drawing.

I will be giving a Demonstration on this subject at Opus Framing and Artist’s Materials on Granville Island in Vancouver, Sunday August 5 – this coming summer – 2018.

The focus will be travel-related images. Not so much about nostalgia for far away  places, but about the wonderful, often unfamiliar, forms you can encounter in places that grew over time and in different cultures – Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Greece, and elsewhere.
