BUILD AND MAKE YOUR OWN ARCHIVAL CANVAS PANEL
Join Kathy Marlene Bailey, B.A. Art Ed., Creative Arts
October 1, 2017 - Sunday - One day Workshop all materials included.
Description: The substrate of your painting is critical to the long-term life of it. Using new ideas and new products, learn state-of-the-art ways to equalize the pressure on the canvas fabric, make the canvas impermeable to the acidity of paint and protect it from cracking and/or getting punctured. Learn how to protect your paintings from the ravages of an array of current bad manufacturing practices that radically reduce the life of your painting. Easily and quickly stretch your own, using the latest and soundest practice, very much recommended by leading art conservators. Your substrate will cost about the same as one that you would buy in the store but it will be a beautiful, infinitely superior product – built with an excellent foundation for paint and built for the long, long haul!

If you want to learn the basics of how the old masters painted and have some great fun exploring outport Newfoundland with your brush, this 5 day art retreat workshop is for you. This is a condensed course, chalk-full of very effective learning with master glazer, Kathy Marlene Bailey. The schedule is flexibly designed to allow for an indoor traditional glaze oil painting project as well as wonderful glazing opportunities outdoors in the beautiful west-shore communities that dot the Trinity shore of Newfoundland. Kathy will teach you the basics of Renaissance glazing processes and will fine-tune your skills in: colour perception and mixing, rendering, value perception, brushwork and depth illusion. The course will build valuable skillsets for any artist and is suitable for rank beginners to artists with very advanced skills in glazing or other techniques

This year we will be holding a paint-out September 11 to 18th at the English Harbour Arts Centre, in English Harbour Newfoundland! I have taught glaze oil painting there twice now, will be teaching it again this September, just before the paint-out, and can attest, it is SPECTACULAR and WONDERFUL. There is “juicy” subject matter to paint in every direction, no matter where you are!
English Harbour is a very old and small outport on the Bonavista Peninsula, on the west shore of Trinity Bay. It is located in close proximity and mid-point between the breathtaking historical meccas of Trinity and Bonavista. The harbour looks westerly and is cradled between large points of land, with interesting formations left over from ancient Appalachian Mountains. There is a culture of historical preservation in English Harbour, not the least of which is manifested in the Arts Centre itself.
The summer community, much of which has ancestral ties to English Harbour and includes many artists, took up the goal of saving the Anglican Church that had been slated for demolition because it had been closed. The permanent residents jumped on board to the project and bought into the idea of establishing an arts centre in their beautiful church. A few years later, the project was completed and the doors opened to the arts.
The English Harbour Arts Centre is a model of how the arts can be well supported even in the smallest of communities. Its board of directors is comprised of a very interesting array of people, with amazing talents and backgrounds. They hail from Newfoundland, the Mainland and the United States and bring to the table many skills, talents knowledge bases and keen participation. The tiny centre holds incredible musical concerts, recitations and drama productions with mind-bending talent from across the province. The Centre draws droves of people down bumpy roads from all neighbouring communities – it is like people suddenly appear out of nowhere! The directors have worked hard to work out every logistic of successfully running an art centre, and consulted with the best already established art centres to glean strategies. As an instructor, I cannot tell you how welcome I feel, with every detail tended to, to make my job easier and with beautiful, thoughtfully put together accommodation at the end and beginning of each workday. Accommodation is plentiful, reasonably priced and in every format. Reasonably priced taxis are available all the way from the St. John’s Airport.
I hope that we can get many of our members out and experiencing this magical place for artists.
