In these private and semi sessions, I will help you develop your creative style through a variety of knife techniques, while also exploring new stylistic territory interpreted through your own artistic vision.
Palette knives can open an exciting new world of possibilities for painters. Painting with knives lends itself to a creative freedom entirely different from that achieved using brushes.
During the sessions you will learn how to build surfaces and depth, and incorporate mark making into your compositions. Some colour theory and composition will also be covered.
Come and play – enjoy some creative time in the intimacy of my studio in the iconic 1000 Parker Street Studios.
Claire is a great teacher. I just attended my first acrylic palette painting class. Her class is not simply a demonstration but she incorporates all the relevant theory such has technique, colour theory and composition. She provided just the right amount of information for our skill level. She guides and yet is careful to let the student's work be his or her own. She makes suggestions while remaining sensitive to your personal style. In our small class of 3 we laughed, learned about each other, and we had encouragement and support. I can't wait to take another class. It was a beautiful day!
