Join me for ‘Streetscapes in Oils & Acrylics’ Workshop – Sun Oct 26 – 10am-5pm

Streetscapes in Oils and Acrylics
Sun, Oct 26 – 10am-5pm

Painting of Lido Cafe by Cheryl Peddie
‘Meet me at Lido Cafe’ 9″x12″ oil on canvas by Cheryl Peddie

Streetscapes are often a subject matter that beginning art students avoid. It’s a shame, because they’re so much fun and allow artists to use a wide range of color not often seen in more natural environments like landscapes. In this one-day workshop, I’ll help you learn to simplify all that you see, and create a fun, urban scene in oils or acrylics.

What to bring: All your painting supplies (I will provide a list once you register, so you don’t forget anything!), and a good selection of urban-oriented photographs to choose from.

I’ll provide: painting cookies, coffee, tea, plus lots of encouragement, guidance and one-on-one instruction

Class Fee: $100. Class size: Max of 8 students.
Or, call Cheryl Peddie at 403-201-6532.
Visa, MC, Cheques, Cash welcome.

Update Sat Oct 17/2014:
This Class is FULL – I have a waitlist available in case of any cancellations. Please call 403-201-6532. Thank you!!

Day 2-1/2 – I’m Painting for Parkinson’s. Just putting the finishing touches on my Day 3 painting this morning. I almost got it finished in the workshop I taught on painting streetscapes last night, but not quite! So it’s not quite ready for it’s glamour photos yet. Please visit again later in the day for it’s unveiling! Hint! It was a restaurant that used to be on 4th Street SW, with a big blue awning. Thanks so much for reading. Cheryl

Feb & March Workshop Dates are Set

I’m excited to announce two more painting workshops set for this winter & spring. I’d love for you to join me:

RedUmbrellas-webTues, Feb 26 – 6-9pm: Streetscapes
Most folks love streetscapes. But many are apprehensive to try painting them because of all that detail! We’ll explore ways to simplify them and still create pleasing compositions. Hint: It doesn’t always involve those teensy tinsy brushes!

Wed, Mar 20 – 6-9pm: Unfussy Florals & Foliage
Just in time for the first day of spring! Florals and foliage can easily become stiff, and lose their sense of natural liveliness. We’ll work on ways to depict the delicate freshness of the blooms, while balancing it with their fullness and volume.

Price per workshop: $35 plus GST
What to bring: pencils & sketchbook; art supplies; photo references or any still life objects you’d like to paint from
Located at: Atlantis Framing – 4515 Manhattan Rd SE, Calgary
To register or for more info: Call Atlantis Framing at 403-258-0075 or me, Cheryl Peddie, at 403-270-9755

Thanks so much for reading – you all are yet another reason why I paint. Best, Cheryl.
