Upcoming Workshops:

October 3: Saskatchewan Landscape, acrylic on canvas (20x10 inches)

When traveling through Saskatchewan, one cannot help but be struck by that big prairie sky.

Acres of grasslands and wheat fields lead to small towns and farmsteads made tiny by the great expanse of blue above them. In this workshop, we use one big and one tiny brush—and a sponge—plus an extreme example of ‘vertical composition’ to create this slice of a classic Western landscape.








October 10: A Walk in the Woods, watercolour on paper (6 x 9 inches)  This class is full! 

This is the time of year when the colours in the trees around us are at their most glorious.  What better time to go for a walk in the woods?  In this workshop, we will work with masking fluid and paint placement to “preserve our whites” while we loosen up and layer our watercolour to create this bright scene of people out for a woodland stroll. 


October 24 (FULL)

With a minimum of 5 students, Rachel will repeat this class on October 31: Autumn Door, acrylic on canvas (20 x 10 inches) Please conatact the Gallery if you are interested!

Virginia Creeper might be a trouble maker of a vine when it wants to take over your trees, but as fall colour?  Wow!  It’s a beauty.  ‘Layers’ are the name of the game here as we investigate all those fabulous colours and build our own version of an autumn vine, surrounding a door which, if opened, I’m sure would lead us to a lovely cup of tea and a slice of  pumpkin pie.
