• Intermediate
  • Painting

This ONLINE intermediate level course offers the experienced painter the opportunity to further their studies in watercolour and explore more complex watercolour strategies using still-life and landscape.

The  course will be comprised of digital images of still life and landscapes. These images will be sent prior to each class, where there will be detailed webcam demonstrations and digitals of paintings will be used as a teaching aid. Students will be asked to email their paintings prior to the class so that they can be pinned for discussion and critiques.

In Winter 2021, this course will be offered in two parts: 6 weeks each. Both parts can be taken as stand alone courses or part 2 can be a continuation of part 1. 

Spring 2021: 8 Weeks: Tuition: $325

Hoxha is also an educator in watercolour and printmaking at the Art Gallery of Ontario and in the T.D.S.B. at Northern S.S., and a long-time member of Open Studio, the artist-run centre and print studio. Hoxha’s work explores the beauty and solace of the natural world, whether in painting or making prints.
