You’re so invited: sampler Art Class with Elizabeth this summer:)

I am teaching a little bit of everything for a week this summer in a beautiful part of the world. Here’s the little ad I made this morning to post.

This will be a lot of fun. We’re going to let loose with lots of different kinds of art making materials and we’ll have a figure model for two of the days which, of course, is just heaven.

In addition to the course, I’m counting on some pretty good swimming up in Haliburton as well great spots for more painting outside of class hours!

So here’s the  ad:

Are you interested drawing and painting but not so sure where to begin?

This is a great drawing and painting sampler course suited to all abilities. In an easy, relaxed classroom atmosphere you will create artworks using a variety of mediums such as pencil, watercolour, acrylics and soft pastels. Each day, using the step-by-step instruction style, a new medium, technique, colour theory, composition or design element will be introduced.

Christmas show and sale at Cranston Gallery


I was invited to participate in a Christmas show and sale with three other artists: Linda Barber, Jesus Estevez and Sharon Fox Cranston. I  gathered what I could find in stacks of sketches and drawing books since I’ve been out of the studio recovering. This was a drawing I think I made for a child from a Beatrix Potter story. Little sketches like these and lots other small oil and watercolors, are now available at Cranston Gallery in Bloomfield. Opening is Saturday November 16 from 1-4pm.
