Online Courses & Workshops: Spring 2023
May 19, & June 23, 2023
The third Friday of each month.
I was thinking of taking an online Zoom course (although I don't really like them) in the hope of priming my creative pump, when I came across an offering by artist/instructor Kal Honey. I know his teaching style and personality: energetic, positive, very knowledgeable and always provides great exercises to get my creative juices going. He delivered! Thanks Kal.

NEW 5-WEEK COURSE!
Nature Up Close!
Tuesdays, May 9 - June 6, 2023
From bones, feathers and shells to plants, animals and insects — closer inspection of natural subjects allows us to more fully appreciate the beauty all around us. We’ll explore a range of subjects — from foraged to internet images — with latitude for personal choices. Working with drawing, painting and your own materials, we’ll explore nature in ways reflecting a more considered and intimate involvement. As with all Kal’s courses, there will be inspiring masterwork examples, open-ended exercises and plenty of discussion — all in a supportive environment.
Note: This is not a wildlife course: rather, natural subjects will act as springboards for personal creative explorations.
Thanks for all the effort you put into your lessons. The art history component adds so much to the success of the assignment.
And it's so great to have an instructor who lets you fly and has no desire to have you copy his own style and ideas. Sooooo refreshing.

Collage is the New Paint
Tuesdays, May 16 - June 6, 2023
Want your pictures to convey the scene, but feel a bit fresher, a bit livelier? Collage them! “Painting” by collaging coloured papers helps you make interesting decisions and unexpected discoveries — and it’s insanely fun to boot! With his trademark blend of inspiring masterworks, discussion and fun, challenging exercises, Kal will help you learn and apply the visual art fundamentals you need to make your collages pop!
