In this class Sea taps into her past as a motivational trainer and her present as a professional artist and art instructor. Treasure mapping is something usually carried out at the turn of the year to bring into being a designed future as opposed to an accidental outcome.
Treasure mapping is a time-honoured method in the human potential movement, but this class adds the twist of placing it in the domain of artistic creation. Using collage and acrylic techniques you will create a personal and highly inspirational piece which will power you forward into a bright future.
This is an experiential class based on tapping into your inner energy and magnifying and projecting your dreams for the future. This class is for you and only you; it is a personal experience designed to bring forth your true self. The art you create is designed to remind you of your inner strength and support you in creating the future of your dreams.
No prerequisite. Open to beginners and experienced artists.
Supply list on request. Preparation required.

This three-day portrait painting workshop is a unique opportunity for students of all levels to learn the process of painting the portrait in oils using a full palette. The course will center on the experience of painting from a live model. There will be a single, sustained pose throughout the workshop, and students will complete one painting over the course of the three days. This will allow students to explore the stages to developing a portrait. We will begin by discussing comparative measuring, to get accurate proportions in the underpainting. Then we will move to colour and concentrate on big form modeling, then defining the planes of the face and features, and finally glazing to fine-tune the details. Students will learn how to achieve a better likeness as well as how to paint convincing flesh tones and render textures like cloth and hair. Each day will include a painting demonstration, discussion and individual instruction at the easel. Discussions will include comparative measuring, proportion and structure of the head, stages to developing a painting, as well as form, value, edges, balance, unity, light and modeling with color temperature.
To register for the workshop, or for further information, please contact Bev Gordon by email email@example.com.

As colour is, for me, the most important element in a painting, I shall reinforce some of the most important points of colour and how to use them in a piece for optimum effect. We will go over using only the 3 primaries. I will distribute hand-outs that you can study explaining the colour theories.
We will then do a few exercises using the primaries to make sure we fully understand and are able to utilize these few colours to create a successful piece.
We will also lay down some texture on a canvas in preparation for a completed abstract painting on Day Two. HOWEVER, we should also be able to create a successful piece without relying on texture so we will also start one of these.
March 17th - Construct Abstract Landscapes with patterns and decoration inspired by artists' like Kandinsky, O'Keeffe and Schapiro. For supplies bring a canvas and paints.

More on Judy Wasyleshko:
Graduating high school and Okanagan College with honors in Fine Arts led to a B.F.A. at the University of British Columbia and the winner of the Deans Choice Award in 2011. Hobby or Obsession she continues to research and experiment with new materials, techniques and mediums in her work. Running the film and digital photo labs at U.B.C. focused her work in photography but she still uses other mediums to express her ideas.
In the tranquil hills above Kelowna at Deadpine Studios she works as photographer, painter, sculpture, and designer. Her artwork focuses on nature and mans influence on it. Using human remains, leftovers and even garbage at times to create artworks that catch our attention on the bigger picture. Traveling in the B.C. backcountry Judy uses photos to record the moment to be later be sculpted or painted in the studio. This gives time for the work to mature, change and be reworked, layered until it’s a piece that can talk and tell stories.
