“Paint like the Group of Seven”
One Day Workshop at Uplands on September 28, 2019
with Harvey Walker.
Explore your Artistic Side!Two years ago James and I took our first painting lesson at Meta4 Gallery with Harvey Walker. He was teaching “Painting like the Group of Seven” and soon we were addicted!
Since then we’ve taken several more courses with him and surprised ourselves with what we’ve produced – paintings we’re actually proud to hang on our wall – or give as gifts. The effect on our lives was much broader than that, however. Painting enhanced the eyes we had already developed by doing photography. Suddenly, everywhere we looked we saw the fields and lakes, farms and forests around us as possible subjects for painting. We noticed how the light was falling, and part of our brains were always noticing colour and imagining how that could be reproduced.
Harvey’s a terrific teacher (and a funny guy! Highly entertaining to work with). He gives confidence to beginning students and shares a wealth of knowledge and techniques with painters who have been working for a while.
Last fall Harvey announced he would no longer be teaching his Friday morning class at Meta4. Driving down from Haliburton once a week for a short class was becoming burdensome for him – we understood but still we were sad – Those studio classes had become so important to us.
But then we came up with a plan… what if we put together a one day workshop and shared the joy? Harvey said yes! In the spring of 2019 we did the first workshop and had an amazing day. But it filled up so quickly and so many people were unable to come that we scheduled another one for the fall right away. Harvey’s next workshop at Uplands will be on Saturday September 28th, 2019.
