BALANCING ACT - A Painting Workshop At Todd Clark Studio

  • Todd Clark Studio 895 Charman Road Gibsons, BC, V0N 1V4 Canada (map)

This workshop will focus on low-risk painting activities, engaging the artist within you and providing some useful tools to advance your painting practice.  Students will explore different mediums and develop a better understanding of how to create a non-objective image on paper.
Lessons and demos will be held inside the studio but students will be painting on tables provided in the gardens around the studio, weather permitting.

Coffee, tea, and baked goods will be provided each day and on the final afternoon a small celebration of our efforts will conclude the workshop.
