This three day workshop will apply the use of a design process in organizing and completing a painting, with composition as a focus.

 

The Design Elements and Design Principles act as check and balance, and will be discussed as part of Atyeo's painting demonstrations.

 

If you are having fun with paint but also having difficulty achieving unity in your paintings, this workshop would be of interest to you.

 

Atyeo will demonstrate a lesson in painting each morning, followed by workshop participants painting in the afternoon.

 

The Instructor

Joining us from Nova Scotia, Brian Atyeo is a 20th-century Canadian painter best known for his colorful depictions of rugged Canadian landscapes. Working in a style based in the tradition of the famed Canadian Group of Seven painters, Atyeo brings a lyrical approach to his observations of Northern terrains.

 

Born in 1950 in Toronto, Canada, he went on to work as an architectural illustrator in western and central Canada until 1980, when he decided to devote himself to his own painting practice. He is a member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour and the Ontario Society of Artists. Atyeo travels throughout Canada making plein-air paintings year round.

Paint as the subject - is a concept that most artists at some point in their development consider, as a new way of thinking.

 

Contemporary painting has allowed this thinking to produce some of the most powerful images in art.

 

Using both representational and abstract approaches, we will discuss and demonstrate this thinking. This workshop will appeal to those who want more than just the obvious nature of their chosen subject to be the dominant aspect of their art.

 

I will demonstrate a lesson in painting each morning, followed by workshop participants painting in the afternoon.

Workshop

Overview

Making our best work involves developing our technical skills and, at the same time, deepening our intuitive skills. We often wish our work had greater depth, significance and personal satisfaction; something calls us and we want to respond to that. In this class, Northcott will work with students of any level to connect the excitement of learning to answer that call.

 

Through a variety of exercises developed to open the participant up to creative expression, students will be asked to reflect on their own inspiration, emotions, and stories. The goal is to understand the importance of ‘digging deeper’, as well as to shift your point of view, and free your mind.

 

While learning ways of rendering objects more quickly and intuitively, you will also learn to think symbolically and make connections between what stirs inside you and what resonates with you in the outside world. Therein lies the heart of a painting.

 

Class Objectives

Take away a renewed connection to your creative source and an ability to see the world from a new perspective.
