An Evening with Connie

CG Demo_Group

Connie Geerts is a main stay in the Calgary visual arts scene and we had the privilege of spending the evening with her! Painter, sculptor, teacher, icon, her energy and creativity are boundless.

Connie led us through background prep, layout, importance of shape, soft and hard edges, colour and final product all within 45 minutes of painting. Her ease of technique and brush handling were wonderful! Thank you Connie!!

For more information on Connie Geerts, please visit her website at conniegeerts.com.

Coming Soon to a Palette Near You

We are pretty excited about our upcoming Cobra workshop with Darryl W. Funk, BFA! Darryl is with Royal Talens and is making a special trip to visit our group and share with us all the secrets of water mixable oil colour with Cobra paint. We will let you know how it goes!

P.S. The workshop was pretty fantastic and we are so thankful for Darryl! We were joined by Pat and Shirl from Sunnyside Art Supplies and it was marvellous!
