Class Description
All too often we get “hung up” or discouraged when we are working on a drawing or painting. You gaze time and time again at your work. Your brain is telling you ‘it's just not right’. You know by your standards what it should look like but it's not happening. You will learn how to draw and paint on the right side of your brain.
About the Artist
Art has always been a part of Sharon's life and for many years she traveled and taught throughout Canada and the United States, and as far as Japan. Still life is one of the first art forms that she became involved in before moving on to discover the worlds of plein air and portraiture. Sharon has always felt that once you've learned to accurately draw what you see, you can then apply colour to create light, shadow and depth. This is the path that Sharon walks and she would love to share it with others who are adventurous.
