Paint your Favourite Animal Class at Assiniboine Park

I am so excited to announce I will be teaching a class at Assiniboine Park INSIDE the Pavilion Gallery during my showcase Mystical Furry Friends on June 19th!


About the Class:

Nothing brings us more joy than our fur babies! In this 3.5 hours class, artist Cori Jaye Elston will help you execute a portrait of your favourite furry friend or animal. Learn how to use a grid technique to plan your canvas for sketching the preliminary line drawing. You will then select and plan your colour palette. The first half of the class will be dedicated to the preparation of your canvas for painting. In the second half, Cori will assist you with any questions or technique issues you encounter while executing your portrait.  

Students must bring a 4"x6" or 5"x7" (size specific) printed photo of their chosen animal. Do not bring an original photo; you must be able to draw on the printed image. All other painting supplies, 11" x 14 " canvas, and extra photos for inspiration will be provided. 

At the end of the class take home your own painting. Brushes and paints belong to the artist. Beginners welcome!

Fee: $55 + GST
Date: Tuesday, June 19
Time: 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm (doors open at 5:30 pm)
