Thornbury

Instructor:  Michelle Fleming

Description: This course is designed for intermediate or experienced painters. The class begins with warm up exercises to remind and enrich students of the fundamentals of painting: focal point, big shapes, big values, direction of light all of which contribute to a strong composition and painting. For the remainder of the class students are encouraged to develop their own unique way of seeing and expression whether it be realistic, impressionistic or abstract, from a source provided or one they bring in.  Each class is followed up with a group critique. This part of the class is enjoyed by all as we learn from each other's paintings: areas to strengthen and areas that are strong and why that is! The class is dynamic, fun and always interesting!

watercolour explorations

Just by the nature of the medium, watercolour paintings are full of light, colour and mood. Martha wants to detonate the myth that this medium is difficult. Her methods are both simple and inventive. Martha will continue to teach watercolour fundamentals to new students focusing on handling the medium to gain control and confidence. More seasoned students will explore painting on canvas and yupo paper (non porous)and use a broader spectrum of pigments and technical supports. All participants are  helped to find their own expression in this exciting medium.
