Spring has finally arrived, and the beautiful blossoming keeps us busy at my art studio. It is always inspiring to paint something which makes us happier and cheers up. Colors are so lively and impressive, shapes so gracious and captivating that brush paints almost from itself.
Some Saturday class students (ages 12-16) kept working on their favorite flowers, some moved onto their toy animals.
Experience shows that the object can be practically anything, the most important part is how we are presenting it, how we are making the viewer to see what inspired us and made us to paint the particular object on watercolour paper or canvas.
Happy and busy

SUMMER ART CAMPS FOR YOUNG ARTISTS 10-16
I am offering creative arts day camps for 3 weeks this year.
Each week is filled with exciting artistic activities and involves exploration of art approaches, learning of new techniques, improvement of skills, development of visual perception, drawing objects from direct observations, both indoors and outdoors, sketching, journaling and painting with watercolours and in mixed media technique.
I’m adding also some 3-dimensional techniques this year for students to try out absolutely new and unexpected effects which can be achieved using imagination and creativity.
Results are usually extremely good, and paintings which were done during this week can serve as a wonderful wall decor in student’s room or as a gift.
This location features large, light and well equipped indoor art studio and beautiful huge outdoor space for plein air painting, it is very easy to access (downtown Whitby).
The garden is surrounded by old trees which provide relaxing shadow during hot summer days.
There’s always something blossoming.
Beautiful object to paint
Lilacs in the garden corner
Wildflowers along the fence; even this fence is artistic, and I have implemented it in quite a few of my paintings
Blue iris is in bloom on the other side of my backyard
Such surroundings and environment always boost artist’s imagination, and nobody has to look for special inspiration.
I hope, I will hear from you soon once you have checked this out.
Please watch Rogers TV, Durham Daytime Show on May 23 at 11am-12. I will be presenting my art classes and creative arts summer camp.
