is eager to assist each student in whatever artistic endeavor they embark upon.
Each week, along with the materials provided at the stations, you will be given a packet of materials which you can use as you wish.
These packets will always include a few pieces of various types of high quality artist's paper (ie watercolor paper, drawing paper) and sometimes other surprises to spark your creativity and imagination.
Each student will have access to 2 canvases during the term as well as other types of supports for acrylic paint and will be taught how to prepare and use them.
If a student is eager to continue to explore painting on these types of supports or canvases, arrangements can be made for the student to have more available to them, or Tania
can teach them how to stretch their own canvas, a very useful skill for a painter to have.
enjoys supporting students with all backgrounds while they come to discover how much they can truly "succeed" when it comes to art and expressing themselves.
Please note: A studio environment will be maintained, so artists should be able to work independently.
Wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on permanently!
