Many contemporary painters are working with an expansive vocabulary of paint, or a distinctly contemporary language, using (and pushing) the properties of the paint, and its application, in varied and unexpected ways.
Their paintings can really surprise us, offering us rich tactile experiences, a vivid sense of the artist’s hand as well as fascinating optical effects.
See lots of examples from artists working today – many of them Canadian! – focusing in on their painterly vocabulary and unique ways of working with paint.
Kim-Lee Kho teaches regularly at Neilson Park Creative Centre. She’s an actively exhibiting multidisciplinary Canadian artist and recovering graphic designer/art director. As a teacher, speaker and consultant, she leads people on adventures in art.
This presentation relates closely to her own approach to painting and she has taught numerous popular courses and workshops on related topics.
Her upcoming weekend workshop at Neilson Park, Contemporary Painting: Transparent Glazes in Acrylics, will focus on creating the gorgeous depth, lustre and complexity of layered transparent glazes. It will look at mediums: suitability and how to choose, mixing and dilution, applying and layering, the very different nature of transparent colour and how to combine it with other approaches.
Experienced glaze painters can also benefit from working on their own projects in consultation with Kim.

Kal Honey and I are working hard to prepare for a special event for Visual Arts Mississauga members, 'Drawing from Life' which combines talk, visuals, film clips and discussion. Co-presented by the two of us, we will focus on the influence and importance of an artist's life in relation to their work, the sometimes surprising pathways and results.
Monday, January 15 (2018), at 7 PM - 10 PM
The most important thing we bring
to our work as artists is our unique selves.

Halfway through February already, how did that happen? Definitely time for me to update you on my upcoming courses and workshops etc. I will start off by listing what I can and will flesh things out and update more as more items are finalized.
If items aren't listed on linked websites when you check, they soon should be, otherwise contact the group in question some other way. If neither works then please let me know :-)
Listed in order of start date, from soonest to least soon.
In an effort to get this information posted even though I am burning the candle at both ends, I am taking a strictly no-frills approach – my apologies for the lack of visuals!
Thanks to everyone who made it out on Saturday!
