"What is the approach?"
I cover the basic aspects of painting with acrylics, as well as many other useful topics.If you watch my You Tube video titled "Introduction to Acrylic Painting" you will have a preview of what I discuss.
Course outline - click here.
In the "Introduction to Drawing" class I take a similar approach, starting with basic materials, techniques and concepts, all the while working towards finished drawings in various media. Art history is incorporated as well in the form of illustrations, videos, and personal anecdotes.

"Painting a Tropical Scene"
As of 1930, The Mill of Kintail became the peaceful summer home of Almonte born Dr. Robert Tait McKenzie and his wife Ethel.
He was internationally recognized for his work as a physician, sculptor, teacher and writer.
According to museum records, Group of Seven artist A. Y. Jackson also visited the Mill of Kintail to paint.
It will be an experience you will benefit from and long remember.
Please, read the review below which was kindly written by one of my recent students.
"It's Kiana from the landscape painting class last session. I thought I would let you know that I wrote a blog post about the Nepean Visual Arts Centre and my experience in the class. I mentioned you and I included a link to your website. If you're interested, you can read it here: https://kiana-stanek-art.pagecloud.com/blog/the-nepean-visual-arts-centre-is-your-one-stop-shop-for-all-things-creative. I hope you like it"!
