Colour theory is one of the most fundamental subjects an artist can learn.  Knowing the basics of colour, value, and shape can help artists look and simplify objects from life and photography.  These three elements can help the individual transfer what they see and recreate it through painting.  In these workshops you will learn basic colour theory terminology, be given colour and black and white paint mixing demos, and as well paint your own still life’s.  After completion of the workshop, you should be able to paint anything from life and photographs, train your eye to see and your hand interpret what you see, and begin looking at the world through a painter’s eye!  Materials will be provided by the Instructor.

New works by Sandy Middleton

On display until Friday 5 June 2015
Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery at NAC

Sandy Middleton has worked as both a commercial and art photographer for over 25 years. She graduated from Ryerson University with a BAA in still photography in 1991 and continued her education and work in the design field.

Sandy’s photographic work is about, color, light, movement, the moment, the day-to-day minutes that occur quietly without much notice. It is about the silent and the still, the frozen in time, yet fleeting instances in our lives.

Her subject matter is primarily landscape, travel, nature and still life. She works in analogue and digital photography, large and small format.

She relocated from Toronto after seventeen years to St.Catharines in 2001 where she currently resides.

Sandy has been an active member of the Niagara Arts community. She exhibits her work throughout Niagara and in galleries and arts fairs in and around Toronto.
