Creating Abstraction in Painting Workshop with Leya Evelyn

Creating Abstraction in Painting

A six week painting workshop to meet every other week on Wednesdays 11am-4pm.

These classes include discussion, work time and critiques of work in class as well as on your own time. We explore where your art is now and where it could be.

The format will be with exercises for the first hour or two and then you can work on your own pieces or continue with what you started in the morning. The exercises are intended to open up different possibilities within the realm of abstraction. These workshops will challenge, satisfy, frustrate and give you a foundation for creating solid painting ideas.

DATE: April 8th, April 22nd, May 6th, May 20th, June 3rd, and June 17th.

LOCATION: St. Luke’s Church in Tantallon, NS

FEE: $350 (for all 6 classes), or $65 (for individual classes) per participant (materials not included). Spaces are limited and the registration list will be created on a first-come basis.

The world broadcast premiere of Landscape Artist of the Year Canada airs this Sunday!

World Broadcast Premiere

on Sunday, February 16 at 9pm ET/PT

as part of Makeful’s Free Nationwide Preview Event

Picture Perfect: Makeful TV Launches Landscape Artist of the Year Canada, A New Competition Series Hosted by Sook-Yin Lee

With 18 Professional and Amateur Artists, 50 Wildcard Walk Ons, Four Stunning Locations, and One Winner Set to Be Crowned Canada’s Landscape Artist of the Year, Watching Paint Dry Has Never Been More Exciting

Following Sky Arts UK’s best-performing, non-scripted series of all time, Landscape Artist of the Year, the highly-anticipated Canadian adaptation, brings together 18 of the country’s best professional and amateur artists alongside 50 wildcard hopefuls to compete for a chance to be crowned Landscape Artist of the Year Canada . Hosted by Sook-Yin Lee, the all new original series sees the artists have just four hours to create a landscape masterpiece. The winning artist will not only be crowned Landscape Artist of the Year Canada, but will also walk away with a $10,000 cash prize and will have their artwork on display at the prestigious McMichael Canadian Art Collection – home to some of Canada’s most iconic landscape art.

The world broadcast premiere of Landscape Artist of the Year Canada airs Sundays at 9 pm ET/PT, starting February 16, exclusively on Makeful during the channel’s eight-week free preview event running from Feb. 3 to April 5 across Canada.

Each episode of Landscape Artist of the Year Canada travels to breathtaking and truly Canadian backdrops, from Muskoka’s picturesque Lake Rousseau to a rural country farm in Barrie. Two winners from each location will go on to compete in the final. However, these artists aren’t the only ones trying to impress the judges. The competition also sees 50 more artists descend onto each location to try their luck as wildcards, and if any catch the judges’ eye, they too have a chance to compete in the final.

Alongside the host Sook-Yin Lee, the four-part series sees expert judges Marc Mayer, former Director of the National Gallery of Canada, and award-winning artist and educator, Joanne Tod, determine the winners of each location until only one artist remains.

Using their own material and style, the artists have just four hours to create their own rendition of the landscape before them. From oil paint to acrylic, collage work to mixed media, the artwork is as diverse as the artists themselves.

Landscape Artist of the Year Canada is produced by marblemedia in association with Blue Ant Media and CBC. Based on the UK format, it is distributed by Banijay Rights, and was originally produced by Storyvault Films. Following the world premiere on Makeful this February, CBC will also air the series later this year.

Meet the 18 chosen artists competing for the title of Canada’s Best Landscape Artist.

NOW OPEN – Applications for Artist in Residence (AiR) Program on Salt Spring Island, BC

Salt Spring National Art Prize

NOW OPEN – APPLICATIONS FOR

The Artist in Residence (AiR) Program

on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia

The Salt Spring Arts Council (SSAC) Artist in Residence (AiR) Program, now in its fifth year, provides an opportunity for artists to work in the vibrant arts environment of Salt Spring Island. The program is open to all professionals working in the arts, in any genre or medium, at any stage of their careers. The intent of the program continues to be the provision of time and space for creativity and productivity for the chosen visiting artists and to introduce them to Salt Spring Island and its arts community. We welcome both National and International applicants to the program.

All submissions are juried with residencies awarded based on artistic merit, available facilities, potential links to the Salt Spring community and associated collaborative opportunities.

Our residents this year are Joyce Majiski from Whitehorse, working on a multi-media installation “Song of the Whale,” painter Claudia Wilholt from Hanover, Germany, working with egg tempera on canvas, and writer Julie Burtinshaw working on her next book: Petit Treason: One Women’s Journey to the Gallows.

As in previous years, as well as working on their own projects, the artists will share their expertise and enthusiasm through presentations, workshops, demonstrations and exhibits, enriching our island with their work and ideas, interacting with Salt Spring artists and enjoying our unique island lifestyle. For information about these artists and events go to; ssartscouncil.com/artist-in-residence/residencies/

The AiR program invites artists to engage with the creative cultural community of Salt Spring Island. Within the spirit of this framework, collaborative proposals by members of the Salt Spring arts community which involve off-island artists are actively encouraged.

In 2021 the annual SSAC presentation Easter Art Show will centre on an exploration of colour, artists who feel their work, explorations, and timing might fit into this scenario should make note of this on their application.

Applications for the AiR program can be submitted on or before April 15th. 2020 for tenure between January 2021 and April 2021. Application information is available at ssartscouncil.com/artist-in-residence/
