Here are upcoming workshops- if you would like a workshop in your area, please contact me and I will be delighted to come to your area and give a workshop.

Courses starting at the Visual Arts Centre On Sept 20th

Mixed Media: Cultural Inspirations (Fall 2016)

Many artists have found inspiration and meaning in the visual approaches and techniques of other cultures. Think of Picasso, Matisse, and Gauguin and the creativity their aesthetic curiosity provoked in their work! This course explores the artistic practices of specific cultures in Bali, Australia or Africa as a direct means of expanding our visual vocabularies and personal expression. Drawing, painting, clay and monoprinting. Pre-requisite: Some experience in drawing or painting.


Time: 1:00 – 4:00 pm
Teacher:  Helga Schleeh
Starting: Fall only; September 20
Duration: 12 weeks
Costs: $335 + materials

Drawing I (Fall 2016/Winter 2017)

If you’ve always wanted to draw, here’s an excellent way to begin. Work in a relaxed atmosphere as you develop the basic skills of observational drawing and discover the magic and pleasure of drawing what you see. The fundamentals of light and shade, line, form and composition will be introduced, using materials such as pencil, ink, charcoal and conté. Subjects include still life, live models and nature studies.


Time: 7:00 – 10:00 pm
Teacher:  Helga Schleeh (fall)
Konstantinos Meramveliotakis (winter)
Starting: Fall: September 20; Winter: January 17
Duration: 12 weeks

Costs: $335 + materials

Printing without a Press (Fall 2016)

The most accessible printmaker’s workshop for artists who would like to bypass the need for a printing press and be able to continue working at home. Jump immediately into hand-rubbing original monotypes with a brayer or roller and water-based (richly coloured) printers’ inks. Explore the fascination and spontaneity of print images, including the suggestive second pull or “ghost print”. Tools include brushes, rags, watercolours and stencils and fine print papers. You’ll produce several works throughout the day. No artmaking experience necessary.


Time: 10:30 am – 5:00 pm
Teacher: Helga Schleeh
Date: October 16
Costs: $105 + $10 Some materials included
