Summer shows 2017

My artwork will be on display at two events in July:

Art Square Group Show:  selected pieces of my artwork are on exhibit from July 17 to 31.  Art Square, which is open daily from 9am to 11pm, is located across the street from the Art Gallery of Ontario.  I'll be dropping by the gallery once or twice during the show to demonstrate digital painting.  See you there!

The Guild Alive With Culture:  I'll have a tent full of my limited-edition prints at this free two-day outdoor arts and one-of-a-kind crafts show in the beautiful Guild Park.  This park backs onto the bluffs and offers stunning lake views.  Throughout the gardens and green spaces are statues, columns, relief sculpture and various bits of stone ornamentation rescued from torn-down Toronto buildings of yore.  There's live entertainment on the stage, and activities in the newly renovated Bickford Residence (formerly the Guild Inn).  For more information see:  Guild Alive With Culture 2017

Come Paint with Me!  Remember to sign up for  Summer workshops at Momiji.  Spaces are still available in my Abstract Painting workshops on August 10 and 17.

Shake up your art!  Kandinsky compared abstract painting to visual poetry.  Use colour, line, texture and form to explore the medium, express yourself and convey meaning.  These four workshops will cover inspiration, composition, paint application alternatives, painting surface treatments, use of mediums and colour theory.  Students should bring their own brushes, paints (acrylics or oils) and painting surfaces, as well as palettes, water containers, etc. 

Flyer to follow soon...

Registration for winter 2017 arts programs

Momiji Centre:

January 4th is the deadline to sign up for Winter 2017 arts programs at the beautiful Momiji centre.  I'm teaching painting, digital art and social media on Thursdays this session.  Join up for plenty of one-on-one instruction, inspiration and demonstrations on technique.  For more information:

Cedar Ridge Creative Centre:

A gentle reminder to register yourself of your child in Winter 2017 arts programs at Cedar Ridge.  Sign up by Thursday morning (January 5th) to avoid waiting lists or program cancellation due to insufficient enrollment.  I teach Sunday Art for Youth programs at Cedar Ridge (drawing, cartooning and painting).  This charming old mansion is a wonderful place to learn or just hang out.  It's dedicated to the arts, with studios and a three-room gallery that exhibits the work of Toronto artists.

Cedarbrook Community Centre:

There may still be spots available in Wednesday Drawing and Sketching.  This lovely centre, which sits at the top of parkland with a ravine running through it, has an art room with windows along three sides.  Cedarbrook offers fee-free programming.  If you're interested in a course that appears to be full, be sure to put your name on the waiting list regardless.
