Painting and teaching  on location weather permitting.

Following in the tradition of the Group of Seven, Cathy will lead you through the process of plein air painting i.e. painting on location. The initial class will explain the necessary painting equipment, and preparation for all kinds of weather. Subsequent classes, weather permitting, will paint on location. Students will learn how to effectively compose landscapes and mix colours and values to portray skies, trees, rocks and water. Later in the course, Cathy will explain how to work up smaller on location paintings to larger finished paintings in the studio. In the case of inclement weather, students will work from photographs. Painting media e.g. pastels and acrylic preferred, oil ok. Student learning will be supported with feedback, demos and critiques. Please note, students must provide their own easels on location

Materials List: Pastel, Acrylic & Oil

WHAT's Online for 2020

The 11th annual West Hamilton Artists Tour will be online-only this year.

Due to the pandemic, instead of the 2 day tour, it has been opened it up as a month-long virtual show - all art can be purchased directly from the makers via their websites or social media links. ​
