    The students should be prepared for an hour of theory or directives, followed by painting each week, and then a critique of your work if you wish. We will look at the Elements and Principles of design and how to implement them while designing the image space. The class will be geared for those artists who are familiar with their chosen medium.

    “I will endeavour to direct the students in learning and implementing the elements and principles of design in developing the picture space. Developing the eye and abilities in the quest to critique their own works.”

    You can see samples of Hazel’s work in the Buckland Gallery in West Vancouver or on their website -
