Workshops


I teach workshops in Calgary & surrounding areas, and on location when requested. Come join me and discover (or rediscover!) a love for painting! All my workshops have a few fundamentals: you’ll explore using design, color, temperature, value, saturation, and shape/edges. We also discuss light and shadow patterns, perspective, form and of course, drawing. My workshops are open to painters working in oils or acrylics.

Glenbow Ranch has great mountain views, lots of rolling plains, and treed areas too. Although the pathways are good, be prepared to walk a little ways with your gear. Note that the pathways are quite hilly. Although there are picnic tables in some areas, the park does get a lot of sun. Please be sure to bring lots of water, sun hat and protective clothing, and some way to shade your easel.

AUTUMN LANDSCAPES

Friday Sept 14, 2018 – Demo 6-9pm (*Refreshments served…come hungry & thirsty!)
Saturday Sept 15, 2018 – Workshop 9:30-4:30
Location:
Cheryl Peddie Studio

Course Fee: $150.00
Max Number of Students: 4

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!

URBAN SCENES – Houses & Street Scenes

Friday Nov 9, 2018 – Demo 6-9pm (*Refreshments served…come hungry & thirsty!)
Saturday Nov 10, 2018 – Workshop 9:30-4:30
Location:
Cheryl Peddie Studio

Course Fee: $150.00
Max Number of Students: 4

This workshop is great for students who wish to understand and improve their ability to draw in perspective. Learn about the different types of perspective, and how to draw more accurate proportions, angles and shapes. Students will also learn to create the right balance between simplification and detail for architectural elements (such as windows & doorways, stairs, balconies, gables, columns and porches). We’ll also work on creating beautiful, coloured neutrals and create a solid plan for lights and shadows. Beginning students can choose a more simplified scene, such as the front of a house; more advanced students are welcome to choose a scene with more elements and perspectives, such as the view down a roadway.
