New Art Class for Fall

Evening Mist – 12″x16″ oil on canvas by Cheryl Peddie

I’m delighted to be adding a third weekly class to my teaching schedule. The new class will be at the Glamorgan Community Centre on Monday mornings from 9am-12pm. The facility is gorgeous, with natural light coming from large windows all around. It has a separate entrance on the main floor, right off the parking lot – super easy for toting in our painting gear.

Here’s the rundown on my classes, for those of you who are just exploring the idea of beginning your art practice:

I love to paint and teach a wide variety of subject matter – landscape, still life, interiors, wildlife, florals; even figures and street scenes!

I work with beginners up to intermediates, so I keep my classes small – 8 students maximum. This allows me enough time to work one-on-one with each student, as well as a great size for group discussions and getting to know your fellow student artists.

I take a comprehensive approach to teaching art – helping students learn fundamentals of drawing while learning to paint. We will also focus on color theory including value, temperature, saturation, plus contrast, edges and design. I also do demonstrations in class to help illustrate the concepts students will be learning. Finally, we’ll work together to help you find a style you love, and build confidence in yourself as an artist.

Workstations are roomy and bright with a table supplied for each student. (See pictures below.) Students do need to bring their own art supplies and a table easel. I have an art supply list prepared, and can recommend some excellent art supply stores in Calgary.

Please contact me as soon as possible to book your space. Fees are $35/class ($140/month based on 4 classes). I take cheques, cash, Visa & MasterCard. Your first month’s fees are required to hold your space.

This is a brand new class so I do need a minimum number of students to start classes. I can be reached any time at cherylpeddie@shaw.ca. Business line: 403-201-6532.
