Be inspired, discover and have fun.

Create a fun paint project using the imagery of a front door. Bring a picture of your own front door or use an Italian front Door photograph from the studio.

Lessons will cover the development of a painting from beginning to end in a fun, supportive studio setting. We will address using a thumbnail value sketch, layout using a grid, adding texture, blocking in the colour and finishing touches to your painting.

Experimental mixed media elements will be discussed in this overall project of art-making exercises. You can sample mized-media products using the studio supplies to test to see which products you like…if you want to use this in your 16 x 16 inch project, you can purchase the product through Theresa or purchase a Liquitex Mixed-media kit. (More details will be provided in the class)

Sit back, relax and enjoy the process of using mixed media in your art. The focus in this class is on the play element when painting. All one needs to bring is a willingness to experiment.

This class is open to students with some previous painting experience.

Is this class like paint night?
No. It is better. You can personalize your workshop with your own imagery. One-to-one instruction and SMALL class sizes

Can you bring your own front door imagery?
Yes. You can bring your own copies (I would recommend bringing 2 copies)  8.5x 8.5 inches in size photographs work best for this class. Please format your image so it is square as we are using a grid to layout these projects. You can call me if interested in setting up your project this way. Please call 403-502-3716 and leave me a message.

What will I need to bring? 
You can sample the mixed-media products in the class but you will need to purchase your own to use in your own painting. The five basic paint colours are provided as well as your painting support. If you want to use a specific paint colour or texture, you’ll need to bring the product with you!

If you have a specific front door image, please bring 2 copies of that image to use as formatted in the description above.
