The Workshop

The Painted History: a fresh look at the family album.

Bring your past into the present as you interpret images of your family and ancestors through contemporary eyes.

You’ll learn how to transcend the snapshot and create a work that has both artistic merit and personal meaning.

We’ll focus on:

  • developing a clear concept for each image
  • editing and composing the elements of the photo into a dynamic and effective whole
  • generating colour schemes for black and white photos or colour-degraded photos
  • exploring brushwork and paint application
  • simplifying features and figures

Working on several different images in this workshop will help you become comfortable and fluent in tackling photo references in the future.


Dates: April 25th – 28th, 2024. 

Time: 9:30 am – 4:30 pm.

Fees: $630.00 for KAC members; $665.00 for non-members, payable at the time of registration.
