Whistler Art Workshops

Alta LakeThe Whistler Arts Council hosts a series of Art events called Workshops on the Lake.  I was pleased to teach an advanced three day  watercolour session. The venue at the old station House on Alta lake is a perfect location. Inspiration is found working right from the outside deck and also in the comfortable creatively ambient studio setting for our challenging studio works. The volunteer and coordinator did a fine job making sure we were all taken care of and were flexible in our start time to catch the earlier morning light. The weather was stunning, almost to good however for painting outside. The pure blue skies and a heat wave made for challenges. Thus we painted the early morning light outside and moved inside to the cool cabin to work on a large full sheet sustained mountain demo in the afternoon. Would really look forward to doing more workshops again in 2011!

    I wanted to say what a terrific workshop this three days in Whistler was! You are a natural teacher and so open in sharing your techniques and insights! Thank you once again!! The cabin on the lake is such a stunning studio and I highly recommend both the Whistler Arts Council courses and Workshops with David … where ever he may be teaching!
