3 Day Workshop – Canmore, AB
April 10-12th, 2015
(Note: This workshop will have a maximum of 10 students)
This 3 day course will cover important design considerations and introduce clear thought processes to launch from when working from photo reference. You will explore key concepts for seeing the potential in your photos, so that you can build on them to create strong, compelling paintings.
There will be several exercises designed to break you out of the “copying the photo idea”, providing you with several new approaches for your toolkit. In addition you will achieve greater clarity on what photos have potential and which are better left unpainted – and why.
In addition to 25 years working as a professional artist, Liz is also a Certified Life Coach. She brings her training in this area to help uncover each individual student’s creative challenges, leading them to clarity on what their unique obstacles and strengths are, and giving them tools to move forward powerfully in their artistic journey.
“Art is the transmittable, personal impression of one quality in the quantity before us. It is the ability to determine consciously what it is that interests him, and why, that differentiates the artist from the art student.” – John Carlson
*Note: My studio is on the 3rd floor with no elevator, and I have a golden retriever that will be at the studio during the workshop. Please take these factors into consideration when determining if this workshop is a good fit for you. Thanks!
