Classes & Workshops

I’m spending some time with my new 2020 calendar today, planning out the schedule of drawing classes, mat hooking workshops, and lino-cut printmaking workshops for the year.

Introduction to Drawing will run for eight weeks, starting in January, and will be offered at two different time-frames: 7-9 on Thursday nights, or 10am-noon on Friday mornings. This class will teach basic skills in drawing, including portraiture, using different drawing tools, and developing good practices.

Advanced Drawing will also run for eight weeks, starting in January, and will take place at the studio on Mondays. Students can choose a morning or evening time slot with this class as well. This class is designed for students who have already learned the basic skills, and will spend each class working on still life arrangements or models, with guidance.

I am planning Mat Hooking Workshops to happen about once a month. These workshops are designed for beginners, and let you experiment with texture, design, and technique. Each student will create a unique tiny mat during the one day workshop.

And my favourite thing to teach, Lino-cut Printmaking Workshops, are being planned for about once every three weeks. I am always amazed at the quality of work my students create in a one day workshop!

Looking forward to welcoming back some previous students, and meeting new ones!
