PAST VIDEOS

Marks and Textures

Multidisciplinary artist Gerald Gladstone’s Galaxy paintings are a fabulous way to explore mark making and texture with geometric shapes and dissected lines. Using either a pen, sharpie, pencil or chalk we will explore the nature of overlapping forms and lines.

Line Drawings

In this program, we discuss Bertram Charles Binning's nautical world, looking at his representations of riggings and lines on sailing ships. Binning's artistic practice was inspired by his everyday encounters. Known as an excellent draughtsman, he recorded his experiences in intricate line drawings.

Painting with tones

In this program, we will explore artwork by Mary Wrinch. Wrinch was a prominent figure in the early Toronto art scene and was among the first women in the city to make a living from her art.

Drawing a still life with Shadows

In this program we will explore cultivated gardens, picked flowers and two of the first women to achieve success as professional artists in Canada, Mary Hiester Reid and Helen Galloway McNicoll.
