Online classes

Since March 2020, our Montreal studio has been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. We are pleased to offer a selection of classes online to encourage the development of our students. We are looking forward to the day when it is safe to reopen our studio, but for now, we hope to see you online!

Fall 2020

This fall, we are offering two painting classes in sessions of 10 weeks. This will allow us to work through a range of quicker studies and more developed pieces. Classes will meet for 3 hours per week on Zoom. We will also maintain a blog for registered students that contains reference images and helpful information. Students can post images of their work to the blog or email them to us for weekly critiques.

Instructor: Eric Mannella

Cost: $475. + taxes = $546.13 per 10-week session

Portrait Painting

A class focusing on painting the portrait in oil. We will work from sketch methods in grisaille to alla prima colour sketches. We will emphasize the planes of the head and different approaches with value, lighting, and brushwork to create paintings with a sense of expression and volume. Students will work on a more developed painting over several weeks.

Sunday evenings, 6:30 to 9:30pm

September 27 through November 29, 10 weeks

Landscape Painting

We will investigate relationships of value and colour in the landscape. Students will try a range of quicker sketches on a small scale, then work on a larger piece over several weeks. Composition, brushwork, and colour relationships will be emphasized and we will look at paintings from the history of art to inspire us.

Wednesday evenings, 6:30 to 9:30pm

September 30 through December 2, 10 weeks
