Workshop on the Power of Observation
Edmonton, Alberta – April 8-10, 2016

Learning to see with an artists eye often depends on unlearning some things that we don’t know we do. Our brain fills in gaps resulting in painting what we think we see, not what is actually there.

In this two and half day workshop, through demonstrations, drawing and painting exercises, you will learn techniques to improve your observational skills.  The beauty of learning to REALLY see is that you can then paint anything – a still life, landscape, or figure. There are no tricks, magic keys or fancy color combinations that will ever surpass your ability to observe.

This workshop is open to people who paint in oil or acrylic, and any skill level.

Friday, April 8 – 6:30 to 9:30 pm
Saturday, April 9 & Sunday, April 10 – 9:30 am to 4:00 pm

Location:  A.J. Ottewell Centre (the Barn), 590 Broadmoor Blvd, Sherwood Park, Alberta

Registration:  This workshop is organized by the Art Society of Strathcona County.  Register online at For more information contact Sue at 780-449-4443 or email  $225 for members / $300 non-members
