Open Studio

The Open Studio is for those who are working on your own painting projects and would like guidance and advice on colour theory, composition, technique or problem solving as you continue. Maybe you have paintings that you know are missing something but you are not sure where to go to improve on them. You might be wondering about the next step in your process or on finishing touches before you want to consider a painting completed. I will be happy to offer a critique, give the piece ‘a fresh eye’ and offer advice as well as one-on-one instruction.

All open studio sessions will be at the Arts & Culture Centre, St. John’s
Maximum of 10 participants

Cost: $50 + HST

To register or for more details, please call 753-2643 or e-mail info@margaretwalshbest.com

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!
This is just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be updating my website in a next few days.
My New Year’s Resolution is to be be much more vigilant with my website.
I’d love to tell you about the wonderful exhibitions I took part in during 2016 as well as the beautiful book, published in Ireland, where you’ll find a full-page image of my botanical painting of a new hybrid Narcissus. It was very thrilling to see it in print.
Check back for details of these, with photos, plus a listing of this Winter’s classes, Open Studios and Workshops.
I’ll also be sending information of my destination Art Vacation in Madeira, Portugal.
Hope you can get to check back soon.
Margaret
