By bringing top-level instructors to New Brunswick, SSANC is able to offer these world-class learning experiences locally, at very affordable prices.
If you have never used oil paint, or if you have been painting for some time and want to take your work to the next level, this class is for you! The course places a strong emphasis on a complete understanding of colour and light as it relates to creating the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. It explores oil painting techniques such as direct and indirect methods, open and closed grisailles, and the best tactics for building a sound painting.
The information on colour is extensive; it explores all aspects of hue, value, temperature, chroma and clearly explains how to maintain control of each element. There are daily demonstrations on colour mixing and painting techniques. Students will work on exercises and small paintings to ensure they have a solid grasp of the information.
Maggie Rose is a Canadian artist currently living in Toronto. After graduating cum laude from the New York Academy in 2001, Maggie continued her training at the Michael Aviano Atelier and studied drawing with Michael Grimaldi. She now paints full time and is passionate about reaching and passing on the training she feels blessed to have received.
Maggie has taught for several years at SSANC, always to rave reviews, much gratitude and wonderful results. Maggie’s work is primarily figurative. She prefers to work from life and often sculpts small figurines when working on subjects that require photo reference. Her primary focus is the continued exploration of the human body, of the color and translucency of flesh, and in objects which we identify with the body such as clothing and dressmaker forms.
