Instructor Website


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.

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.
