An Introduction to Acrylics class will take place in my studio on Saturday January 20th from 10 am to 3 pm. Cost of $150 per person includes all materials and lunch.  No experience required. Only one spot left! Contact me at rodgers.ruth@gmail.com to inquire.

Acrylic classes will begin in spring 2018.  Each lesson will focus on one of the elements of painting (concept, composition, contrast, colour, clarity) in more depth. The price will be $275 for the set of 5 x 4-hour lessons, or you may attend single lessons at $60 per lesson. You will provide your own supplies and bring a packed lunch.  Morning tea and snacks, and access to my supplies and materials when needed, are included in the price. Maximum 4 students.

As well, I facilitate an online art mentoring program (Ruth's Online Art Mentoring, or ROAM), an independent study, self-paced, fully online course of study. The experience is designed to develop a deep understanding of the five foundational art principles (concept, composition, contrast, colour, and clarity) so that artists may take a considered and informed approach to their painting, regardless of medium. The six units of the course require self-study, guided research, and completion of hands-on exercises, and each one culminates with an hour-long 1:1 online conversation with me via Skype or Facetime. Each unit is expected to be completed within a month, approximately.  The course is recommended for intermediate to advanced painters who have not completed a formal course of art education theory and technique. The basic ROAM course of six units is $600; an advanced course of a further six units (skies and clouds; water and waves; trees and greens; mountains and grasslands; autumn colours; snowscapes) is now available. Intake is open at any time.

Below are some photos of students--great work, everyone!
