Whether it’s from ideas about safety or about tradition, many artists are uncertain about using oil paints. This workshop will demonstrate not only that artists’ oils can be non-toxic and safe, but also that they are meant to be used in as many ways as there are artists. Students will learn colour mixing, varying application techniques, how to adapt oils to their own subjects and ways of working, and how generous oil painting can be. Students will also learn safe studio practice and how to use oils without solvents or smell.
As this a five-day workshop, students will have the opportunity to develop their composition and planning skills, find different ways of mark-making that are personal and relevant, use a range of tools, and make and build on mistakes and accidents.
Laureen Marchand lives in Val Marie, Saskatchewan, just north of the Montana border at the gateway to Grasslands National Park. Inspired by this region's subtlety and remoteness, her paintings reflect on our ideas and perception of beauty. These artworks invite us to see not just the painted object, but ourselves in it.Click here to read more about LAUREEN MARCHAND
