I guess the name Art Slam says it all. Is winning better than losing in a speed painting contest? Oh well. It was all for charity. 18 people competed, 20 minute time limit, acrylics, any subject (no explicit nudity). I did a pair of boats in the first round and flamenco dancers for the finale. Ole’

Painting – 8 Wednesday Afternoons, January 17th to March 7th, 2018, 1:30 – 4:00
The course will use both watercolour and/or acrylics. Choose one or try both. Everything is demonstrated and taught step-by step:
Part One – will focus on painting projects that emphasize colour , tonality and design. Those with painting experience may use any preferred water-based medium (watercolour or acrylics). Those with little or no experience may prefer acrylics to begin with.
Part Two – will focus a little more on watercolour projects, though, if people prefer, they can continue with acrylics. We will work on paintings emphasizing form and space, through colour, light and shadow.
We will paint still-life, villages, landscapes, mountains, lakes and streams. Totally new projects are explored each time the course runs, so take or retake this course to begin or refresh your skills. All levels are welcome.
