Painting Impressionistic Wildlife in Acrylics

      A Workshop with Tracey Lee Green

       Sunday, August 11, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

The Art Gallery of Bancroft is excited to welcome back award-winning, multi-form artist Tracey Lee Green.  Previous workshops presented by Tracey at the AGB have been among the most popular in attendance.

Workshop Instructor

Tracey Lee Green has worked with both paint and metal as artistic media at her studio in the Haliburton Highlands.  She paints portraits of wild animals that are found injured or abandoned and dropped off at the Woodlands Wildlife Sanctuary in Haliburton County; the original paintings are donated to the sanctuary for fundraising.  

Tracey had a solo exhibition “Portraits of Nature” at the AGB in July 2016.  She was a founding member of A Place for the Arts cooperative in Bancroft.  Her works, both paintings and metalwork, have been exhibited in Bancroft, Millbrook, Haliburton, Aurora, Huntsville and Algonquin Park.  Her works are found in private collections in New Zealand, Australia, Britain, Scotland, Germany and across North America.

“I need to create... That is the long and the short of it. It encompasses my existence. The materials don't matter to me, it is the process, the journey, the critical thinking, the passion and the peace.”

“Whether I am working with paint, or sculpting and hammering metals, I am always drawn to creating organic pieces, sometimes functional, mostly not. They mirror nature, something that I value greatly and respect. Through my vision and guidance I strive to honor that place from which we live.”

 

Workshop Description

In this one day workshop, participants will learn the how to apply alternative mark making and brush techniques allowing them to create wildlife portraits without having to paint each feather or strand of fur!  A great workshop for artists who want to loosen up, or beginners who just want to try to push a little paint around.  You will leave the workshop with a finished piece you will be proud to display at home!
