This 4-day acrylic painting and drawing workshop will focus on how an observed landscape can be abstracted through colour and form. Short field trips will guide participants to observe the landscape, make preliminary sketches in situ, and then develop paintings in the studio. This course is recommended for participants with experience working in acrylics or watercolours at an intermediate level or more. Upon registration, participants will receive a list of course materials. Note: This is a scent-free workshop.

A prolific artist, curator, and writer, Jay Isaac will share examples of his work, and the work of contemporary and modern artists to illustrate the use of landscape and its components as starting points for abstraction. Formerly from Saint John, Isaac was educated at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver BC, and the Cardiff School of Art and Design, Cardiff, Wales. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Isaac has also curated several online exhibitions and published critical essays and articles about artists in Canada. His work is in many private and public collections in Canada including the Royal Bank of Canada and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.
