The Critically Acclaimed Artist Program is designed to offer maximum professional development opportunities to artists and students. By bringing top-level instructors to New Brunswick, SSANC is able to offer these world-class learning experiences locally, at very affordable prices.
This workshop is for those who have oil painting experience, or who have taken a previous course with Maggie. Artists are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and execute work with more complexity.
In particular, this intensive course will be focussing on how to take the elements you have previously learned and, through them, develop your own language of expression and technique in painting. The small class number (10) will ensure maximum direct instruction and discussion with each student.
Subject matter is up to each individual. Working from life and/or photographs are equally encouraged. The option to develop one piece or several is up to the individual. Participants are encouraged to arrive with a variety of possible ideas to explore. Discussions on all aspects of oil painting will develop in the moment based on the work being created.
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 teaching and passing on the training she feels blessed to have received. She 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.
