"Principles That Govern Great Art" with Brian Turner

A successful piece of art begins long before we put the paint on our brushes
As we plan our masterpiece do we know and have we considered and incorporated fundamental principles that govern great art? 
Among other things these include composition, shape, contrast and color.
In our evening together we will look at each of these 4 principles with an emphasis on composition. 
The presentation itself will be an interactive conversation using power point examples to illustrate and test our knowledge of these fundamentals. 
Bring your questions and insights and we'll see you then.

"Principes qui régissent l'art" avec Brian Turner


Une œuvre d'art réussie commence bien avant que nous appliquions la peinture sur nos pinceaux. En planifiant notre chef-d’œuvre, connaissons-nous et avons-nous pris en compte et incorporé les principes fondamentaux qui régissent l'art?  Ceux-ci incluent, entre autres, la composition, la forme, le contraste et la couleur.

Au cours de notre soirée ensemble, nous examinerons chacun de ces 4 principes en mettant l’accent sur la composition.  La présentation elle-même sera une conversation interactive utilisant des exemples PowerPoint pour illustrer et tester notre connaissance de ces principes fondamentaux.

Apportez vos questions et idées et nous nous verrons ensuite.

5. Misc. News


Arts Night is held on the last Friday of each month from September to June at The First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa, located at 30 Cleary Ave. in the west end of Ottawa, off Richmond Rd. and one stop-light block east of Woodroffe Ave. These popular events which started in 2003 begin at 7:30 pm with an "open mike" a time when members of the audience are encouraged to give up to a five-minute presentation of any art form. We then present three guest artists, one each in the literary, visual, and musical arts, who share their particular art form for approximately 20 minutes, and after all the presentations, converse with, and answer questions from the audience. This event is a show and tell, the when and why of their artistic creations.

Love Yourself Workshop with Suzanne Valois

Embrace the face that greets you in the mirror each morning and dispel your self-critic through positive reinforcements while drawing it out! This workshop was developed to improve observational skills but perhaps more importantly to become mindful of the messages that we often feed ourselves about ourselves. Draw your own self portrait (with a lot of guidelines to help you get there) while enjoying soothing positive, meditative affirmations. See the difference that it makes in the lines and expression of your face which is indeed mirrored in your soul. No experience is necessary – just an open mind!

Saturday, October 20, 1:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Dance Studio, Shenkman Arts Centre, Orleans
$50/members; $60/non-members (All materials are included)

Suzanne Valois is a certified Expressive Arts practitioner, teacher, artist and founder of the Art of Being Human, who has been committed to helping individuals uncover and value their authentic voice through Creative Expression, for personal and global wellbeing. Suzanne currently works with the City of Ottawa, the University of Ottawa, and the Ottawa School of Art, offering workshops on Creative Expression for groups and individuals, creating and promoting programs using VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) and Art for Health.

Chaque matin, embrasse le visage qui te salue dans le miroir et dissipe ton autocritique par un renforcement positif pendant que tu le dessines. Cet atelier a été développé pour améliorer des habiletés mais surtout pour devenir attentif aux messages qui souvent nous nourrissent nous-mêmes à notre sujet. Dessine ton portrait (avec plusieurs points de repères pour t’aider) jusqu’à un apaisement positif, méditatif. Regarde la différence que font les lignes et expressions de ton visage qui est le reflet de ton âme.

The Basics of Shading in Graphite

Saturday, October 13th
Time: 10 am til 3 pm
Fee: $65
NO previous drawing experience is necessary!
Note: Space is limited – ONLY 6 spots available! This class won’t be offered again until 2019!

Discover the true magic of pencils in this single day, 5 hour workshop, which is designed to introduce you to the tools used by pencil artists who work in a realist style. Learn everything you need to know about the various tools required to work in graphite, how the different pencil grades behave and how to wield them to achieve particular results. Besides gaining an understanding about all the various tools that help create the magic, you will also learn the real secret behind achieving those beautifully smooth blended tones that so many artists struggle to perfect.

No previous drawing experience is necessary for this workshop . . . but because this class teaches fundamental, foundational knowledge for working with graphite in a realistic style, it is a pre-requisite for many of my other classes and workshops.

Michael Wilcox School of Colour Seeks New Canadian Rep


After many years of working with the Michael Wilcox School of Colour (MWSOC) I am planning on retiring at the end of this year. I am looking to find a replacement for myself so that the Canadian Office does not have to close.

The position is best suited for an artist who understands the MWSOC colour theory, or who is committed to learning it, which is actually amazingly easy. My medium is acrylics but it also works in oils, watercolours and any other medium where colours are mixed to produce new colours. I also use the colour theory in my silk scarf workshops, for mixing dye colours.

The position entails filling orders from the MWSOC website and Amazon Canada, for books, paints, brushes and home study courses, shipping them via Canada Post. In Ottawa we also have a local market of students who make direct purchases.

The successful candidate will also have the opportunity of doing demos and workshops with local arts organizations, as well as offering their own workshops, classes and events.

Artists' conferences also offer opportunities to increase income by promoting and selling MWSOC products. The new rep will be able to take advantage of the many opportunities that will present themselves, to promote and sell MWSOC products.

Income is commission based on sales, plus all expenses like shipping materials, postage etc are reimbursed. Monthly reports need to be submitted for the commissions and expenses and twice a year an inventory of current stock is required to be submitted.

I've enjoyed my years with MWSOC, plus, as an art teacher, I have found it increased my recognition in the arts community and with students.

If you are interested please contact me directly to find out more.

Thanks and best wishes,
Susan Ashbrook,

Salvador Dali: In Search of Immortality

Scotiabank Theatre Gloucester (formerly Silver City Gloucester) is presenting documentary entitled SALVADOR DALÍ: IN SEARCH OF IMMORTALITY. This documentary is being screened on Wednesday October 3, and we encourage you to find a fellow Arteast member for an evening out.
Synopsis

The documentary proposes an exhaustive journey through the life and work of Salvador Dalí, and also of Gala, his muse and collaborator. It starts in 1929, a crucial year in Dalí's career and life, as he joined the surrealist group and met Gala, and advances until the year of the artist's death in 1989. In all this vital and artistic journey, Dalí's geographies, especially Portlligat, stand out as the only stable home-workshop he possesses; Figueres, his hometown, where he creates his Dalí Theater-Museum, and Púbol, where the Castle is, exponent of courtly love, which Dalí gives to Gala. But naturally other cities, especially Paris and New York are also central.
Synopsis

Le documentaire transporte les spectateurs dans un voyage exhaustif à la découverte de la vie et des œuvres de Salvador Dalí et de Gala, sa muse et collaboratrice. L’histoire commence en 1929, une année marquante de la carrière et de la vie de Dalí, puisque c’est à ce moment précis qu’il s’est joint au mouvement surréaliste et a rencontré Gala, et se termine en 1989, l’année de la mort de l’artiste. Tout au long de ce documentaire, les trois points du Triangle dalinien servent de fil conducteur à la découverte de sa vie et de ses œuvres : Portlligat, le seul atelier et résidence stable du peintre; Figueres, sa ville natale, où il a créé son théâtre-musée Dalí; et Púbol, où se situe le château Dalí, symbole de l’amour courtois et cadeau que Dalí a offert à Gala. Bien sûr, d’autres villes, notamment Paris et New York, constituent également des thèmes centraux du film.

WHEN: Wednesday October 3 @ 7:30pm at Scotiabank Theatre (formerly Silver City).

Tickets are available online at https://www.cineplex.com/Movie/salvador-dali-in-search-of-immortality and general admission is $11.99.
