Our Art Workshops offer wide range of learning opportunities for everyone interested in learning more about their chosen medium and developing their talents. The workshops are offered throughout the year—usually five times. Each is based on hands-on learning, where participants developing their skills under the direction and guidance of a seasoned artists, and in a supportive environment.

The small group environment offers abundant attention, inspiration and motivation. Here you can experience different techniques such as acrylic, oil, watercolour, pastel, charcoal, pencil, pen and ink; and you can learn about composition, perspective and other art forms. Unless otherwise told, participants bring their own materials.

Unless otherwise noted, each workshop is from 9 am to 4 pm each day.

Doug MaysDOUG'S PAINTING APPROACH is uniquely ‘loose and impressionistic’ and he readily admits being influenced early on by the colour and compositions of John Singer Sargent and the design philosophy of Edgar Whitney. Today he follows a Whitney-like instructional style for his workshops with proven results. His demonstrations, lessons and critiques utilize the Design Elements and the Principles of Design, all of which form the basis for his workshops.

Doug is an elected member of the prestigious Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour (CSPWC), and he is Past-President of the Central Ontario Art Association (COAA). His enthusiasm for the watercolour medium along with his pragmatic and light-hearted approach, all lead to a stress-free and enjoyable experience.

John AndersonJOHN DAVID ANDERSON is a Canadian Contemporary Impressionist. He says, "Painting is a way for me to express with a range of values, edges and colours an emotional response to light on surfaces in a space. The subject can be anything. I look for elements of beauty within anything that light touches. I use paint tonally applied with rich colour and an impressionist character. The subject does not drive the composition, but for me the light does."
