15 Minute Paintings with Zoe Clemens

Sun, October 15, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Fifteen Minute Paintings are meant as a learning process, and best done in the morning as a warm up exercise.

Ideally, you would get up 15 minutes early to do these. When you are ready to start painting, set a timer for fifteen minutes, then pick up your brush and start painting. When the timer rings, put your brush down and walk away from the painting. You never go back to fix or finish.

The idea is to discover how different media work on different types of paper and/or canvas, what brushes work best and how to cover a lot of space in a short time. You will also learn what is important to the image and what is not necessary and can be left out. You will learn which medias can be painted over within a few minutes and which ones have to dry out first. This is meant as an exercise, not a finished painting.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Coquitlam or contact them at 604‑545‑0410 to register.
