Oil Painting for Beginners

This is a class for anyone who has yearned to paint in oils but has also heard that oils might be just too difficult to work with! Step by step for three weeks, this class will offer a gentle but very practical introduction to painting with oils. Working on a manageable 8×10″ canvas each week, students will learn the basics, starting with sketching out an idea, transferring a sketch to the canvas followed by step by step instruction on paint mixing and application. Teaching is by demonstration followed by one on one instruction.

Cost is $90 for a three week session.

Classes will start on May 31 2-5PM with following classes on June 14, and June 28. At the Baxter Art Centre, 3 Stanley Street, Bloomfield. For more information and to register please visit Baxter’s website.

Van Gogh & Japan

The Regent Theatre presents the next film in their Art Series: Van Gogh & Japan.

After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find – the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors. In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.

The showing is at 1PM on June 16 at  The Regent Theatre, 224 Main Street, Picton.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $10 for students and are available at their box office or online.
