Autumn Landscape
October 18 - 20th, 2019
Friday 6-9pm, Saturday 9am-4pm, Sunday 12-4pm
McClure United Church, 4025 Taylor St E, Saskatoon
$325.00 plus tax
Oil and acrylic painters welcome

Revel in the warm tones of painting the autumn landscape. Learn to mix those tricky oranges and reds without creating mud! And as with all my courses, learn to use value sketches and notans to create a successful design with a compelling light and shadow pattern. You’ll also learn how to deal with trees, as they begin to shed their leafy foliage and expose their bare branches and structure. Many students struggle to maintain a sense of form and volume when painting bare trees – and begin to dread it. But I’ll teach you how to see and handle them without fear – you’ll begin to love painting them as much as I do!

Cheryl Peddie is a full-time artist and art instructor who has been painting in oil for over 20 years. In 2015, Cheryl began painting plein air (painting outdoors, on location). It opened her eyes to a new way of seeing and living as an artist. Plein air is now an integral part of Cheryl’s portfolio, and she uses her studies to inform and inspire her studio work. Her paintings have been commissioned by the Rocky View Foundation, and the Western Communities Foundation. Cheryl’s work is available at the Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, AB, Lineham House Galleries in Okotoks, AB and at Galleria Inglewood, in Calgary. She is an awarded member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Most recently, Cheryl was accepted as one of 30 artists juried into the 2019 Hockaday Museum Glacier Plein Air Festival in Montanta. Her fall shows this year will feature many of the paintings she will create there. Visit her website at for her art show, gallery and instruction.

Introduction to Painting
Instructor: JEAN DUDLEY
Sept. 24 - Nov. 12 (Tuesdays)
6:30-9:00 pm (8 classes)

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: ANNE MCELROY
Sept 25 - Nov. 13 (Wednesdays)
6:30-9:00 pm (8 classes)
$300.00 + tax
Limit 8 per class

The purpose of this class is to actively encourage exploration and the freedom which comes from simplifying the subject matter or breaking away from it. Although the class will begin as painting on a two dimensional surface, Anne welcomes you to take liberties. The first and last classes will be introductory and personal choice, and the remaining six classes will focus on subject matter which is, at first defined, then later expanded on and personalized. There will be classes devoted to Still Life, Landscape, Portraiture, Music, Found Object, Mixed Media... something for everyone. You will find Anne flexible and supportive in your quest to challenge yourselves with abstract painting.

Anne has been an abstract painter for many years dabbling also in a variety of alternative media: clay, fibre, pen, book-making, and jewellery-making. Paintings are abstracted from what she sees in her personal surroundings, landscapes and her responses to music. She has written, illustrated and hardbound two childrens’ books and most recently finished a book for an adult audience about animal welfare issues called Bewildered by Loss ....Working to Better Their Lives. Her educational background is an MFA and MEd which have allowed her to teach, mentor and be involved in workshops and adjudications.
