MAC – All-Day Abstract Acrylics Workshops with Deborah Nicol

May 28 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Third Session – In each workshop we will start the day with a short talk and demo, and then move on to paint our masterpieces! We will break for a short lunch around noon so bring something or plan on slipping out to pick something up. We will pick up our brushes after that and have a short critique session at the end of the day.

Shapes, shapes and more shapes – May 28
In this workshop we will focus our efforts on incorporating shapes and how that effects the outcome!

Supplies to bring
Easel if you have one. The MAC has an assortment of table easels and some stand up easels as well, although there may not have enough or one you like.

Your paints and brushes and a canvas. Try and bring a canvas that allows you room to play around!

What to expect
There will be lots of painting of course. You are free to ask questions or look for guidance at any point throughout the day. We will start the day with a short talk of each day’s goals and what we hope to accomplish. We will put into practise what we have learned and paint throughout the day. Questions are welcome and guidance where you might want it. We break for lunch around 12 to 1 pm, so bring something to fill that gap and keep up your energy. There are several fast food places that you can slip out to if you prefer. At the close of the day, around 2:30 to 3:00 pm we will reconvene for a wrap up and critique of the day.

Washrooms are close and available for our use.

Covid restrictions will be in place as per the Macmillan Gallery protocols at the time of the workshops. We will wear our masks and maintain distance throughout the day. If your workshop has to be cancelled due to restrictions, a full refund will be in effect.

Price: $100 for each workshop
Book all three or pick and choose!
