SUMMER PAINTING SESSIONS 2021

A view in Paris of the Seine in summertime.

Hello Everyone!

The long days of summer are before us, hopefully a time for relaxation, a chance to move away from work-related energies, maybe do some goofing off 😉 and perhaps also to enjoy expressions of creativity like painting––for pleasure, self-reflection, and upgrading one’s skill level.

With this in mind, I am offering online Open Painting Studio sessions on four Sundays over July and August. Staggering the classes every two weeks allows for some flexibility in planning holiday excursions, yet you can still keep your practise going.

For those of you who would prefer a private class for something specific you have been wanting to improve in your process, I am happy to set up a date and time that is convenient for you. 🙂

See below for both options:

OPEN PAINTING STUDIO ONLINE

This is a three-hour group session I offer to provide students with mutual support, inspiration and technical guidance, and a lovely opportunity to have someone to paint with. I can help you with all aspects of painting process, whether you work in acrylic or oil, representational painting or abstraction. Bring a project on the go, or start a new one.

July 11, July 25, August 8 & August 22. 10am -1pm

*Tuition: $85 per three-hour session. Sign up for all four session for $300 and save $40.

Registration Deadline: June 30, 2021

PRIVATE PAINTING CLASSES ONLINE

These one-hour sessions are customized to your needs, which may consist of technical considerations, such as detailed use of materials, loosening up brushwork, understanding colour, OR improving drawing skills, but could also include consultation with me on other aspects of your practise, such as getting out of your own way to feel more relaxed at the easel, focussing your energies toward an exhibition, developing an artist statement, and/or goal-setting to help your practise grow.

*Tuition: $125 per hour

Four session package: $450

How to pay: E-transfer to val@valnelson.ca

*Cancellation policy: If you need to cancel, I am happy to offer you a credit toward a future class. Please give me one week’s notice if you need to cancel. This gives me some time to fill your spot.

Supply List: Provided shortly after registration
