Discover the beauty of working with the fascinating and unique medium of traditional glaze oils with Instructor Kathy Marlene Bailey, who is among a handful of artists in Canada to work and instruct in this highly specialized field. Geared to both the absolute beginner and the advanced artist, this short course will lead you through the process of traditional glaze oils, going step by step into layering and building complex luminous colour – just as the Old Masters did. In this four-week workshop, students will unlock the mystery of why the colour qualities of contemporary works are so different from those of the Old Masters while having fun and leaving with their own piece! This class uses non-toxic and fume free materials.

She is currently represented by Christina Parker Gallery in St. John’s NL and Art @231 Gallery in Hamilton.
