Introducing

Beyond the Basics with Rogue eNamels

 

This workshop provides a great opportunity for enhancing your creativity by exploring a wide range of techniques used by Marguerite. Expect an intense, concentrated, and lively workshop.

Day one will be all about mixing the correct consistency paint to create and paint your own streaky background glass as well as learning to create a smooth opaque single colour backgrounds for use in other techniques during the rest of the workshop. Once the glass is fired, Marguerite will show you how to use the flow pattern as a guide to create simplistic tree and landscapes, creating a beautiful panel.

 

 

On day two Marguerite will delve into abstracts. Whether you are learning for the first time or refreshing your skills, this will be a fun and explorative part of the course.  During this part of the workshop, you’ll learn how to observe what’s around you and how to translate ideas into Abstract design.  Throughout the morning we will venture out into the beautiful areas surrounding Ottawa (weather permitting). You will be creating a journal by taking reference photos and sketching ideas.  Returning to the studio for lunch, we will explore your gathered inspirations into abstract designs.   The afternoon will also consist of learning a wide variety of painting techniques and texture build up ideas to be incorporated in your design.

Day three will be focused on creating a series of abstract work.  Putting in practice what you learned in day 2.

Day four will cover pictorial painting techniques, ranging from simplistic seascapes, painterly style birds, to loose flower bouquets. 

 

 

One our last day, day five, we will be creating a little graphic coaster or jewelry pendant, using a variety of techniques covered during the 4 days.  This is a fun way to recap what you have learned and explore more of your ideas.  Marguerite will also discuss all her different mounting ideas.  You will be supplied with handout booklet with photo instructions on each technique. 

 

 

After the workshop, you will have access to a special private Facebook group.  This gives you the opportunity to explore what you have learned at home and have a place where you can post photos and ask questions if you need some help with the techniques that you have learned during class.

You will also get a one hour one to one private video painting session through zoom, to use to cover one of the techniques from the workshop again.  These sessions are only available within the first 12 months after the workshop has ended.  Bookings for this will be done on availability for both parties.


    The plan is always to help you reach your potential, painting YOUR way, with YOUR voice and vision, but better than ever before. Come be encouraged and inspired in a fun, upbeat atmosphere and go home ready to create your best work yet.
