The students should be prepared for an hour of theory or directives, followed by painting each week, and then 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 – www.bucklandsoutherst.com

List of supplies needed:
As we move along more materials may be needed but this will start us off nicely. For the first class bring:
1 – deep (1″) canvas size 12×12 prepared using gesso with a colour added. It will be a lovely pastel (colour of your choosing just not pure white).
2 – canvases (3/4″) deep 11×14″ prepared with gesso and the colour of your choosing.
Paints: black, white, red, yellow & blue
Brushes: No. 2 round brush; and a No. 6 flat brush

You may want to take a few notes. Notebook & pen. We will start with some theory then begin painting. Bring your usual supplies like water container for brushes, paper towel, apron etc.
As the classes proceed you will be encouraged to bring more paint colours (dipping into their colours on hand) and possibly larger canvases if you desire to work larger. Hazel will direct you in what is needed for the weeks following the first class.
