Happy New Year to all our readers! We are now right into our 2016 events calendar starting with our first demonstration of the year on Jan 19, 2016 at our meeting location: the Coach House at Hycroft at 6:30pm.
Artist Gabriela Diaconu (http://www.artshock.com/) will be presenting this evening "Understanding the Basic Concepts Used to Unify Your Composition". Gabriela has an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts from Bucharest, Romania where she was raised and educated. She resides in Coquitlam and paints in all mediums. Her work is found in collections around the world.
This evening's program will focus on:
- the importance and methods of creating a centre of interest by using contrasting tones to get more expression She will show the four basic approaches of using colour for unifying a subject.
- the ways of achieving visual unity by using one source of illumination.
Please bring a small sketch book and a set of watercolours or pencil crayons for taking notes and apply these important concepts in your future indoors and on-site artworks.
We are happy to announce as a club that we have been accepted to show our work as a group with the Burnaby Arts Council in the Deer Lake Gallery this August!!!!
Looking forward to seeing more of you at the upcoming meeting! Mark it on your calendars!
