Watch this short clip of  a demo of what we will be focused on this session. Rocks!

Painting rocks is a great way to learn and practice the use of lights and shadows to create different shape rocks. I’ve simplified these lessons so that anyone can learn how to do this.

Healing Through Painting in Oils

Struggling with your mental health?

Art is Therapy!  RW (Recovery West) August-September Lessons will be commencing the third in a series of oil painting lessons for 2017 starting this coming August 9th.

Art is Therapy!  RW (Recovery West) August-September Lessons

Create a beautiful painting in this FIVE (5) easy lessons; designed specifically for those with no previous painting experience. The focus in this next series of lessons is “rocks in water”…big ones, small ones, medium ones… Whatever size your heart desires. We’ll put (create)’em in there. Think of painting rocks as creating miniature mountains, but with the ease of painting a mole-hill. Sticking to our usual 3-color pallet makes the process that much easier. I will take you through all the step to a finished painting you’ll be proud to hand on your wall and show off to friends.

Recovery West Oil Painting For Beginners Session 2- 2017

Another RW Oil Painting Class Complete: I have had the pleasure of sharing my passion for art and teaching with my peers at Recovery West for more than three years now. Each time a session comes to its completion I feel a certain measure of healing take place and a boost overall self-confidence in my students and for me as well. The final lesson of each session is always a mix bag of emotions as the students gaze at his and-or her painting in disbelief of what they’ve created. Tears flow, cheeks rise with smiles and a stronger belief in self takes form. The entire process is visual proof we are all creative Beings.

This time around the focus was placed on clouds.

As with previous oil painting for beginners offered at RW, this session also had a subject of focus. This time around the focus was placed on clouds. Past subject included, simple techniques for painting water, evergreens, and mountains. These subject will be repeated in future lessons.

Art is Therapy! RW (Recovery West) April-May Lessons

Healing Through Painting in Oils

Art is Therapy!  RW (Recovery West) April-May Lessons: This being the second series of oil painting lessons of 2017, for some of the members at RW (Recovery West: CMHA); students are off to a ‘feel good’ start working on their skies. Some have chosen to  paint on their canvases using a landscape orientation while others prefer the ‘portrait’ view. What feels right for each is the best way.

Create a beautiful painting in FIVE (5) easy lessons. Go home with a finished painting you’ll be proud to show off to your family and friends. This time around students are focusing on painting a basic sky with a few Cumulonimbus clouds. By using a simple technique I have coined “cleaning the brush”, students gain a clear understanding of how simple it is to paint realistic looking clouds.

We are using a brand of Ultramarine blue to lay in the ‘Zenith’ and ‘Horizon’ of the sky. Tune in next time to see how the students combine these two elements into a sky that has depth and appears three-dimensional.
