JUST A REMINDER of our next members meeting this coming Monday, September 14th at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre – located at the Nepean Sportsplex.
The address is 1701 Woodroffe Avenue. The NVAC is located at the back at entrance 3. (For those who have taken classes with Kerri – the meeting is in the same room.)
Meeting time is from 1:00 to approximately 3:30 pm.
Our guest speaker this time is Susan Ashbrook on "Michael Wilcox Colour Theory"
Susan Ashbrook has spent a lifetime working in the visual arts sector, as a commercial artist, a display artist, a parade float designer, a fine artist and as an art teacher. During this time colour mixing was one of those testing experiences based on trial and error, until a friend gave her a colour mixing video by Michael Wilcox. Suddenly it all started making sense.
What Susan discovered was that she, for some unknown reason, had been using the correct colours but did not know how to mix them to her advantage. She started to take a more in depth look at Michael's colour theory and was so impressed that she took the teacher's exam and became a certified School of Colour instructor.
As she became more proficient as an instructor she was invited by Michael Wilcox to become more involved in the school and is now the Canadian Rep for the School of Colour. In that capacity she loves spreading the knowledge and helping others learn how to make colour mixing second nature.
She says, "It's not difficult once you understand the theory, and I can teach you that in a short period of time". I'm looking forward to showing you!
Please bring in your latest projects or new books. We will set up an area for displaying these items.
