Painting Through the Palette

with Shyrina Rose

All Welcome
Thursdays, Feb 2 - Mar 9
10am - 1pm

About the Workshop

This course will explore colour for its formal qualities, learning how colour catches the eye, changes the mood of a painting and can suggest the feeling of an environment. Students will explore painting a variety of subjects and themes through the use of monochrome, contrasts, compliments, hues and washes to further accentuate how we use our palettes. They will learn how to create beautiful hues from a simple palette, furthering their mixing techniques, exploring colour ranges, monochromes, cool and warm palettes and assisting in students' ability to portray their beautiful art through the palette.

Shyrina Rose

Shyrina Rose is an interdisciplinary artist exploring themes of play, nature, and irregularity through her work. She embraces whimsy and draws inspiration from nature and the beautifully intricate qualities hidden all around us. Through her sculptural works she creates experiences akin to those experienced in nature. Wishing one would be small enough to sleep inside an acorn or find a home inside of a tree stump. Shyrina began her fine arts at the University of Alberta before attending the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design where she received her Bachelor of fine arts degree.
