Following a full and fantastic workshop last weekend, I have decided to start a weekly class in January. The class will be on Fridays, from 12- 2:30, at the Dunedin Community Hall. Classes will run in 10 week sessions and the fee for a session is $325.

If you have never worked with me before, I  will start you on a few short projects that will teach fundamental skills in oil painting and colour mixing. Aside from those, however, I would like my students to work on paintings based on their own ideas and chosen subject matter. I will support you in creating your own work and within that process, teach valuable lessons in painting.

The class is limited to 12 students, so that I can give everyone ample one-on-one instruction. If you would like to register or if you have any questions please email or call me at 416.559.6189

June Workshop in Kensington Market

I had so much fun teaching at the Nook Collective last month I have to do it again!

This workshop will begin with an evening demo, on Friday June 20th, from 6-9pm. Students will watch as I paint a portrait sketch from life. I encourage students to take pictures and ask questions as I work from the model.

We will work from 10am-4pm on Saturday June 21st and Sunday the 22nd. Students will work on their own portraits from life, starting from the drawing stage to blocking in, big volume modeling through to rendering the features.

The Nook Collective is at 156 Augusta Avenue, in the heart of Kensington Market. This workshop is limited to 10 students, to ensure quality one-on-one instruction. The fee is $300 if you supply your own paint or $325 if I supply the paint.

The register or inquire please email or call Sara at 416.559.6189
