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.

Samedi, 20 octobre : 13h30 – 17h 30
Dance Studio, Centre des arts Shenkman
$50/membre $60/non-membre

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,
