Description

Acrylic - Evening (Introductory to Advanced Level)
Date: September 21 - November 9, 2017 (Thursdays, 8 weeks)
Time: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Instructor: Onni Nordman
Fee: $106 plus HST (Members) | Fee: $121.90 plus HST (Non Members)

You are already an artist. You just have to paint earnestly and then learn when to stop, to know when you have a work of art in front of you. That’s more important than skill.

Everyone has a style that is natural to them, and expresses who they are. You can tell when you’ve found it because the work suddenly becomes fun. This class is a chance to find out how your personal way of making marks fits into the thousand ways of making pictures given to us by a thousand years of painting, in an eight-week one-on-one mentorship. It can also work as a mini art-history course. Even when you make something that seems wrong, you can find an example of a celebrated artist who has done that same thing deliberately, for an intended purpose. If this sounds like something you would like to do, you will be in for a treat. Materials needed are: sheets of bristol board (from Dollarama), paint brushes, paint: red, yellow, blue and white, to start; rags, jars for water, masking tape. You'll know what else you need from experience.

Onni Nordman is a painter from Cape Breton whose home and studio are on the cliffs of South Bar. His work has been acknowledged by Creative Nova Scotia and the Canada Council for the Arts. He was named Visual Artist of 2015 by Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design. Onni’s work is unique, innovative and decidedly contemporary. Formally trained at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, he returned to Sydney in 1995 and has continued his work, painting and creating many projects over time. In 2015, Onni had a show and a two month residency in Munich, Germany and another show in Helsinki, Finland.
