I have developed and volunteer weekly to lead an Art Group for Inpatients in the
Mental Health Unit at Stratford General Hospital.
Creating art has many benefits, including stress relief, positive emotions, and improved problem-solving and communication skills. I love to share my love of art with participants to help them reap some of these benefits.
Please see the offerings below for private/semi private drawing instruction that I teach in my studio! Schedule of lessons is flexible and based on client level and needs. Youth and Adult. References available on Request.
Introduction to Drawing
I will teach the essential elements required for representational drawing including topics such as observation, shape, value, proportion, perspective, light and shadow, shading and texture.
I will review the essential elements required for representational drawing followed by more focus on sighting, focal point, composition, shading and texture.
Intermediate Level 2/Advanced
Continuing from Intermediate Drawing, with emphasis on drawing still life set ups from life. Topics such as figurative, pet or portrait drawing can also be covered.
Thank you for joining me at Westland Gallery on Thurs November 10th at 6:30 pm
for a presentation about my amazing experience as the Artist in Residence on an archaeological dig this past summer.
As a Canadian of Irish descent, I am inspired to discover more about Ireland’s history and share my artistic interpretation of those discoveries with local and international communities. This residency provided a unique opportunity to experience and participate in physically unearthing the past and used my skills to record the story of this archaeological dig artistically. Through graphite, charcoal, ink drawings, and pastel paintings, these realistic depictions will preserve the richness of the archaeological process and this location, capturing the science of historical discovery.
As well as painting and drawing each day, I also took part in the actual excavation with international students, professors, historians, and archaeologists. I will share my stories, images, and work produced recording the site, surrounding area, and the archaeological process during the presentation.
