Are you heading off on vacation and packing your paints? If you have ever considered plein air painting on the beach, then this workshop is for you! Participants will learn the fundamentals of plein air painting. We will discuss tips and techniques, including recommended materials and strategies for success. The workshop includes time to practice and apply strategies for sketching and painting. This is an indoor workshop. Prior experience in watercolour painting is recommended but not required.
Melissa Baron’s interest in art was first piqued at a creative writing camp for teenagers in a cartooning class. Her reluctance quickly gave way to delight, and this led to her practicing art at every opportunity. She feels she is fortunate to combine her love of art with her other passion: teaching art full-time at Ecole Secondaire Beaumont Composite High School.
Melissa studied at the University of Alberta, and at Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, Australia and still takes classes from local and international artists. In her creative practice, she works intuitively with images from daily life, integrating symbolism and text. Her work is informed by plein air watercolour painting, especially as she travels. She is inspired by nature, especially mountains and skyscapes.
