5-day Summer Teen Camp

  • August 13 - 17
  • 1-3:30pm daily

$160 Supplies Included

This workshop will cover all the steps to creating a realistic painting from a photograph. Students start with toning the canvas and making an accurate portrait drawing. They will then learn fundamentals of working with oil paint including layering, mark making, and introductory colour theory, while completing an underpainting. From there, the focus will be directed to the fine details and subtle qualities that make a portrait painting more realistic. Throughout the process, students will also gain knowledge on colour temperatures in shadows and highlights of the face, creating depth, and creating the illusion of the different textures of skin, hair, and clothing.

Students are asked to please bring a high-quality 8.5”x11” printed-out image of either themselves or a portrait of someone they would like to paint to use as a reference.

Instructor Bio:

Amy Gaulin grew up in small towns throughout Alberta. While living with her parents, she also lived amongst their collections of antiques, trinkets, and dated items. Being surrounded by rusted metal parts, aged wood, and their warm colours has given Amy an affinity to capturing the stories of items often left unheard. These sensibilities are captured in the essence of her paintings, drawings, and sculptural works.

Amy is a multidisciplinary artist, specializing in realistic portraits. Trained as a printmaker, and previously employed as a sculptor, Amy has also facilitated many public workshops in bookmaking, printmaking, and art therapy. Though she has ambition in many fields, her focus lies within using soft marks, subtle details, and muted colours through painting to vivify fading photographs and give permanence to disappearing memories. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with distinction from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2012, and most recently is the recipient of the 2015 ACAD Alumni Legacy Award.
