Impressionist Painting

How to paint like Impressionists

Thursday 1:00 – 3:00 pm

Instructor: Linda Woolven

Would you like to learn how to paint like Impressionists and paint in your own expressive style? Then join this painting class in Toronto. 

This innovative painting class will help each artist discover his or her own unique style of expressive painting. Students will learn to express impressions of a subject by capturing the essence and feeling of the subject matter using light, layers, and movement, to develop a style of their own.

Linda will be doing some demonstrations to teach students how to use stroke, with the brush and palette knife, to capture light, emotion, movement and mood in their painting. Type of stroke, edges, values, shape, composition, stroke direction, layers, colour, texture and light will be studied.

Students can use reference photos provided or bring in their own photos to work from. Any level of the painter is welcome to join, from beginner to advanced painters. Students can join at any time during the term. Drop-ins welcome.

Linda has developed the emotive impressionism style of paintings whose often thick textures feature moody, emotional landscapes, old buildings, and cities. Linda is an established painter and teacher whose workshops and classes are in high demand.
