Mentorship Overview:

6 weekly Live Zoom Sessions

We start this mentorship program with an evaluation of your current status, as well as an introduction to everyone in the group. Kit will discuss short and long term goals with you and introduce techniques and concepts that reveal a way to bring full intention and awareness to our art making practice.


Each consecutive week we will build on and continue to apply fundamental painting principles of design and technique to clarify and help you create paintings that reflect your own unique style and creative voice.

You will takeaway practical ways to improve your paintings and then share your results in the following session.


About the Instructor - Kit Bell, AFCA

Kit Bell

Born in Vancouver, B.C. Kit attended the University of British Columbia, graduation with a Bachelor of Science in 1974. Throughout her life, Kit has always drawn and painted and although her professional career took her into the world of computers, art always remained a strog interest.


Kit moved to Ottawa, Ontario after graduating from UBC where she began to paint landscapes in oil.  She was represented by the Inspiration Art Gallery in Ottawa and by the Firehall Gallery in Perth, Ontario.  She took the opportunity to study at the Ottawa School of Art and  exhibited her work at the BCAL Clothesline Fair in Ottawa (a juried show) for several years.


After moving to Kelowna, BC in 1992, a busy career prevented her from pursuing art for nearly 15 years. Returning in 2008 to painting, Kit has picked up where she left off.  Continuing to expand her knowledge and develop her technique and vision, she enjoys both painting on location and working in her studio.
