The Art of Seeing with Lisa Ochowycz
September 28, 2019
Saturday, September 28, 11:00am – 12:30pm
Saturday, September 28, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Join Lisa Ochowycz and learn how keen observation of our surroundings can lead to depth in abstract acrylic painting!
Lisa Ochowycz will be demonstrating and encouraging looseness, abstraction, and supporting your individual artistic voice as you paint in acrylic. You will learn how paying close attention to our environment (built and natural) can help translate what we see around us in to abstract mark making and brush work. The demo and discussion will include: starting an abstract painting, building layers of painted imagery, how understanding your medium and building your skills can allow for more freedom in the work, how to draw upon your environment, life experience, and passions and how to translate them into paint.
Lisa is a full time painter and has been based in Vancouver for the last 14 years. Her series are named after streets or neighbourhoods, near and far, that have played a role in her artistic explorations. She has shown both locally and nationally and her work can be found in private collections world wide. She teaches across the lower mainland and in 2016 she was awarded a four week artist residency in Iceland, and one in Saskatchewan in 2013.
