Painting Basics
Instructor: JEAN DUDLEY
March 20th – May 8th (Tuesday)
6:30-9:00 pm (8 classes)
$300.00 plus tax

The elements of art: line, shape, form, space, texture, value and colour will be explored using a reduced palette.  We will focus on a particular element each night while painting a still life.  Brushes, mediums, surfaces and composition will be discussed. The focus of the class is to become comfortable using paint and brushes. The needs of each student will help form the direction of the course. Acrylic paint will be the medium used for teaching purposes. If you prefer to use another type of paint, please consult the instructor prior to class start.

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.

Abstract Painting
Instructor: KIM ENNIS
March 22nd – May 10th (Thursday)
6:30-9:00 pm (8 classes)
$300.00 plus tax

“There is no such thing as a good painting about nothing.”

This saying has been attributed to a number of artists, Mark Rothko among them. How does a painter get past the stages of aimless play and ‘interesting’ designs? In this hands-on studio class we will explore methods for giving a direction to our play and a compelling reason for our designs, including techniques for sustaining a prolonged research project and ideas for assessing progress. Serious painting, whether abstract or not, is a deep personal exploration and a quest for what matters.

AnneKim Ennis was born in Saskatoon in 1956. Drawing and painting independently until 1980 he then became a protégé of the late W.H. Epp and worked mainly in bronze, stone and wood for the next two decades. In 2009 he completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) with Great Distinction at the University of Saskatchewan. He completed a Special Case Master of Arts in Art History in 2012, with his thesis on spiritual aspects of Saskatchewan painting. He is currently the owner of Vanishing Point Picture Framing, teaching painting in the University of Saskatchewan Community Arts program, and painting in his home studio.
