Suitable for all levels this workshop is intended to get you out of your head and into creative mode as we work on a grid of wooden panels, adding, subtracting, incising and embelleshing to create texture and enhance your composition. The Grid becomes a mini jigsaw puzzle to help free you from outcome and concentrate on playful process as we explore the elements of composition, colour, tone, texture and line.

Miranda moved to Saskatchewan in her mid 20’s from Australia and completed her MFA at the U of S. Although Miranda has embraced prairie life with a vengeance, her early years growing up in the Australian countryside have shaped her love of nature and the outdoors. Her paintings and sculptures are a celebration of colour and form. She has held numerous solo exhibitions including the Mendel Art Gallery, Nouveau Gallery (formerly Susan Whitney Gallery in Regina), Darrell Bell Gallery, Saskatoon and Parker Gallery in New Zealand and her work is represented in major collections both in Saskatchewan and internationally. In Saskatoon Miranda exhibits regularly as a member at the Studio on 20th artist collective, located at 236A 20th st West.

En Plein Air Workshop

Instructor: JEAN DUDLEY
Location: Gabriel Dumont Park
May 29th, June 5th, June 12th and June 26th (Tuesdays)
6:30-9:00 pm
$150.00 plus tax (4 classes)

En Plein Air is painting from nature outside; the elements, the changing light and the complicated views can be challenging for all artists. This 4 session workshop will take place in Gabriel Dumont Park to paint the views from the park. Each night we will focus on a particular element, but as with all painting, the elements all work together. The first night we will work on simplification of the scene, followed by composition, dealing with the changing light and lastly putting them all together. We will begin each session with a short discussion on the topic of the day then complete a small painting focusing on this topic. Participants may choose to continue working on this painting or start a new one. Participants will need to carry their own gear and some painting experience is required. Thursdays will be the alternate day if Tuesday is rained out.

As an adult Jean Dudley has always drawn and painted and been involved with various art forms, one leading to another and another. In the last 10 years she has found the wonders of oil paint, and has strayed very little from that path. She prefers to paint outside, in nature, and the loss of Kenderdine Campus still haunts her to this day.
