We will learn how the rock cycle (we will learn about the main rock types) involved in these changes has left New Brunswick with a grand geological inheritance. In the building of continents, mountain ranges and sedimentary basin the inner workings of our planets are reflected in its surface expression. We are part of the Appalachian range, and we share our story with other circum-Atlantic continents.

In this course, every level of painter will learn how to free up their hand and mind towards a more exuberant and forgiving style of painting. This is an excellent opportunity for absolute beginners as instruction is easygoing and highly individual. You may choose to work in the studio or outside with oils or acrylics as the recommended media.

Students will learn how to make a strong serviceable rug (plain weave being an excellent structure for rugs). Initially students will weave stripes and spots using two colours, learning how to overcome the selvage problems inherent in each different design. Clasped wefts, crossed wefts and compensated inlay will be covered, all these new techniques giving the weaver more freedom with design.

Naive Botany: A Natural History Guide to Installation Practice

August 16 @ 9:00 am - August 18 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

In the nineteenth century, ‘botanizing’ became a craze. It was something you did on the seashore, in the meadows, or on the sidewalk. It was the act of observing, collecting, and identifying, in an attempt to understand the world in terms of its almost infinite myriad forms and faces. It was a way to become both lost and found. With botanizing as its framework, this course explores ways in which we might translate our daily observations and practices into another space and form such as a gallery installation. As starting points, this might include re-inhabiting the routine of a daily walk, identifying unconscious collection practices, or ways to rethink an already existing art or craft practice in terms of scale and experience. We will spend the course in discussion over examples and theories of installation, and take advantage of the natural setting of Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre to immerse ourselves in the creation of individual, barely begun, well-conceived, yet wildly imagined, installation proposals.

A sample of topics that will be discussed include the expanded prismatic colour wheel and how to 'hold' a colour while it's lightened or darkened how to 'file' colours under umbrella hues how to juggle the 4 colour "balls" (hue, value, temperature and chroma) without dropping one while altering another and how to successfully reduce or heighten chroma without getting "mud". We'll also look at a variety of palettes, including the simplest to more complex flesh palettes. This workshop will help you mix the colours you're aiming for more swiftly, achieve more dynamic and subtle colour in your work, get more out of the paint colours you already have - and will help you make smart choices on the next that you buy.

She prefers to work from life and often sculpts small figurines when working on subjects that require photo reference. Her primary focus is the continued exploration of the human body, of the color and translucency of flesh, and in objects which we identify with the body such as clothing and dressmaker forms.
