Classes

I am pleased to offer the following learning opportunities. Contact me at rodgers.ruth@gmail.com for registration or other information:

Rivenrock Studio, 5472 Hydaway Place, Halfmoon Bay, BC

Pastel classes are offered on alternate Fridays, 10am - 2pm (4 hours); new students accepted every three months for 5-session packages at $275 or single lessons for $60; next intake January 2017.

Acrylic classes will begin in spring 2017. There are several more spots in this series,  which will take place Wednesdays, from 10-2, from April 5 to May 31 (5 lessons).  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!
