Also, I may be teaching, Art Adventures, a week long children’s class for Port Colborne ArtWeek in August, so once I know if the Port Colborne class has enough students registered to be held, I  will decide whether or not I will hold a 2nd Art Camp week here at the studio in August.

Group of Seven Paint Workshop

Lawren Harris' Emerald LakeI am looking forward to teaching a Paint Workshop at McKay Elementary School this week.  The inspiration for the painting will be the Group of Seven artist, Larwen Harris.  I will be posting the 7th and 8th grade classes interpretations soon!

I painted this today;”Lawren Harris’ Emerald Lake”, based on Harris’ work as a teaching painting.  It will leave lots of room for their own interpretations and variations of colour.
