A 2 and half day landscape painting workshop learning to use oil paints with landscape painter Tara Higgins.

Have you always wanted to try oil painting but are intimidated by the medium, and perhaps the investment. Or has someone generously given you some oil paints and you have no idea what to do with them. This workshop is for you. Learn the tricks of the trade of laying down oil paint and keeping the colours clean. 

Tara will demonstrate techniques, offer paint along studies and help you work on a small to medium sized piece based on your inspiration photos.

Victoria, BC songwriter David P. Smith has been writing, performing, and recording since 1995. He is essentially a storyteller, his narratives visceral, sometimes hilarious, peering into darkness, stumbling into surreality, lurching back into the everyday, and occupying that honest spot where good C&W dwells. Musically and sonically he draws on everything from the raw emotion of hard-core country and rhythm and blues, to noise, to folk, to the forms dictated or suggested or discovered on the accordion or piano.

Event Date: 
Repeats every day until Mon Nov 05 2018. Also includes Wed Nov 07 2018.
