Summer Workshops 2011 UPDATED!

I am offering 2 workshops this summer, at my school The Leslieville School of Art. Here are the workshop descriptions:

Mixed Media Fun 
July 23rd and 24th. 10am- 3pm.

This workshop is for students of all skill levels. During this weekend long workshop Sara Sniderhan will lead students through 3 mixed media projects. Students will be introduced to oil paint, reduction drawing with charcoal and white chalk, hand tinting paper and mixed media drawing with a beeswax finish. Each project will also enrich basic drawing, painting and composition skills.
The cost of this workshop is $300.00 and includes all materials.

Life Painting Workshop

August 19 (10am- 1pm), 20th and 21st (10am- 4pm) 

Instructed by Sara Sniderhan, students of this 3-day workshop will create 3 oil sketches from live (clothed) models. Sniderhan will lead with demonstrations on how to mix a natural flesh palette, capture a likeness, how to render flesh and hair in oil paint and how to compose a dynamic oil study. One oil sketch will be painted outdoors to explore the differences of light and colour and to incorporate fauna into the composition.
The cost of the workshop is $350.00 and covers the model fee and all
