Online Painting Course: Painting with Confidence

4 days over 2 weekends – Oct 2&3 and Oct 9&10 – Via ZOOM, small class size.
When I’m painting, I sometimes feel that the freedom I have to choose colours, the subject and technique can actually be stifling, stop me from starting and make me constantly second guess my decisions! Does any of this sound familiar? In this workshop, I’m going to share all my tips and tricks so that you can create your own personal reference guide to support your art practice. Having a foundation to lean on will give you greater confidence while you paint.

SCAC Literary Reading Series: Gil Adamson

Reads from her most recent novel, Ridgerunner (2020). Finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize. Winner of the Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. Ridgerunner is the sequel to Adamson’s highly acclaimed first novel, The Outlander. Ridgerunner is a historical novel set in Canada’s wild west of 1917. It’s peopled with rich, complex characters in a world that is rendered so clearly it’s as if we have remembered it for ourselves.  Once again Gil Adamson questions traditional notions of right and wrong.
