Enthusiastic beginners and experienced artists welcome!

blue-pulsing-lightDiscover paint effects that excite & bring about incredible textures!

Play experimentally as well as emotively!

Suzanne will challenge you to grow your creative repertoire:
“I will push you to challenge yourself and step right outside of your box. Your setting will be nurturing & non-judgmental and the atmosphere guaranteed to be charged with a palpable energy.”

Each day begins with a survey and informal discussion of some of Suzanne’s favourite artists, plus 2 mornings will be spent working from a live model.

Using the informafresh-eggstion from these discussions, you will delve into and explore those artists’ styles through a series of warm up exercises designed to help you loosen up, become playful and grow your creative repertoire.

Your afternoons will continue with experimentation in different media on various papers, canvas and boards – all designed to enhance and expand your outlook.

And the day will conclude with an interactive discussion and critique allowing you the opportunity to share your experience of the day, your roadblocks and your revelations.

In her own words: My playfulness and experimentation with new and exciting processes will always be the leading component of my work and, therefore, the spontaneity and excitement of making art will never be lost. Painting is my passion, it defines who I am, and it is the most important way I wish to share that passion with others. My heart and soul inhabits each piece I create. And it is my hope that each work will somehow touch the viewer emotively not only visually… a reaction is all that is required to attribute to success.

Workshop Schedule:
Our week starts Sunday, July 5 with a 5:00 reception, gourmet dinner and an introductory talk by Suzanne.

Please DO NOT come earlier as we will be setting up, unless you are staying on-site, in which case you may access your room at 4:00. There will be time to set up your space and unpack your materials after the opening dinner.

The workshop runs Monday through Thursday, 9:00 to 4:00, and Friday 9:00 to 2:00 with delicious snacks and lunches each day. An hour of yoga follows each workshop day on the banks of the Noisy River. We have a limited number of yoga mats to share, so please bring your own mat if you have one.

The studio will remain open every night until 10:00 PM for the duration of the workshop for those who want to work into the evening.

A closing dinner is served Thursday evening, and the workshop ends Friday, July 10 after a late lunch and wrap up/critique.

Suzanne’s Material List (posted May 4, 2015):
◊ Lots of paper on which to work (nothing smaller than a full size watercolour sheet 30×22)
◊ Paper that can take paint and wet media (so a pad of newsprint is okay but a cartridge or slightly heavier paper is best. See what’s on sale and have at least 2 dozen sheets)
◊ If you plan to draw on over-sized paper (not your standard watercolour sheet size) please bring your own easel. Suzanne will provide over-sized boards.
◊ 4 TerraSkin sheets and 2 YUPO sheets
◊ 4 cold press and 4 hot press
◊ 4 canvases (whatever size you choose); make them all different
◊ some raw canvas (off stretcher), about 3 ft x 2 ft
◊ white tissue paper from dollar store
◊ newspaper
◊ any collage paper you may have
◊ bulldog clips
◊ matte medium is for pasting
◊ black ink
◊ spray bottle
◊ candle
◊ cloths for wiping and paper towel
◊ acrylic paints (whatever you have, especially black white and primary colours)
◊ various brushes
◊ any dry media you have: oil pastels, oil sticks, soft pastels, vine charcoal, compressed charcoal, watercolour crayons, etc.
◊ white eraser pencils
◊ palette knife and palette paper (rolls of freezer paper or wax paper work well as palettes)
◊ sponge roller, scraper – again any extras you may have
◊ water containers to hold your brushes

“I know this is a lot. Please bring what you have, it doesn’t have to be everything!!
Make sure you have enough paper. More is better than less. 
Please feel free to email me any questions beforehand.
Come with a sense of humour and a sense of playfulness.”
