Class Schedule

As a passionate teacher, it is my goal to offer exciting, informative and encouraging workshops. The beginner student will marvel in their results, after just one class! By focusing on shapes, values and edges, each composition is achieved quickly and you will complete a painting after each class.

Shapes are made from the shadows, light and reflections cast on any subject and within each of these shapes is a value (light to dark tones) of colour. Step by step instruction will help students to identify each shape and which value of colour to apply. Once all the shapes are ‘blocked’ in, we focus on the edges.

Edges are simply where each shape connects. Merging the edges together through blending and creating texture, finalizes our painting.

A variety of subjects including, still life, landscapes and portraiture are offered.

About Lisa's Palette

"My paintings are often admired for their realistic qualities through the use of light, shadow and colour. Capturing the beauty within the rustic landscapes of my entitled series, 'Farms of Simcoe County,' has become my passion. Keeping my camera close at hand allows me to capture the images as I come across them, while I use my artistic gifts to seek out particular points of interests in these images. Painting on location brings a connection to the subject, through not only sight, but sound and smell as well. My goal is to produce paintings that give the viewer a sense of calmness and relaxation.”
