ART RETREAT

ART RETREAT

April 13-15 2018

Break away with friends for a unique, creative experience. Explore your creative side through our 3 day art workshop. We will be focusing on painting, using secondary forms of art making and taking inspiration from nature. Each day there will be a morning and evening session leaving afternoons open to explore the beautiful vistas around the resort, and enjoy some time to relax. All materials required for the workshops are included.

With a focus on painting, using secondary forms of art making and taking inspiration from nature we will have a burning ceremony, use journals and have group discussions to explore reflection. Each day we will have a morning and evening session, leaving afternoons open to explore the area, experience the region in the winter, and enjoy the many amenities Oakwood Resort has to offer. All materials in the workshop are included.

Explore the beauty.

Combine technical aspects of creating and drawing, to abstractly realise what reflections are in our lives; drawing the lines between where we’ve been and where we are. Through a process of writing, drawing and painting you will be making 5 projects with this underlying theme.

A few of the things we will do:

  • Mirror drawings
  • Water piece about how water reflects a healing nature)
  • Incorporate water into painting water colour/acrylic with water and drips
  • Painting a water scene
  • Using both sides of the brain, opposite hand drawing and reversals

Kristyn Watterworth, Art Instructor

Kristyn's artistic studies have been ongoing for 18 years, beginning with a mentorship under Harry D. Wilkinson.  He taught Kristyn the discipline of painting, and opened her eyes to ‘seeing’.  In 2008 she completed an honours BFA specializing in visual art at York University.  During her time at school, she took on the more applied side of Art by starting her own Studio-Gallery in the quaint tourist town of Bayfield, Ontario Canada.  It is there that Kristyn spent her summers, teaching, painting, and selling her work.  Because of the touristic nature of the location, her work resides in collections all over Canada, USA, Australia, and many countries in Europe.

"I paint for love and passion. My work spans many different genres but is mostly about movement, colour and dynamics. Inspiration is everywhere and I love to work with the creative process. My favourite process is laying down a few lines and letting the painting emerge from the original strokes." K. Watterworth
