Lunch & Learn: Arthur Shilling - Character and Colour with Juliana Hawke

Wednesday, February 1, 2017 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Wednesday, February 1, 2017   12-2pm

Arthur Shilling: Character and Colour with Juliana Hawke

On February 1, join instructor Juliana Hawke for a hands on Lunch & Learn inspired by Arthur Shilling who is renowned for his use of colour and bold composition to render powerful and emotionally evocative portraits. In this session, participants will create a self-portrait in oil pastel by integrating colour theory, non-local colour, proportion and abstraction to render an impressionistic likeness that reveals an inner experience of each participant. Pattern, symbol and the relationship between colour and feelings will be explored while drawing upon a large body of Shilling portraits for inspiration.

Participants will be encouraged to visit the Upper Gallery on the second floor for The Spirit of Mariposa, which explores four local artists who have made an impact on Canadian culture in celebration of Orillia and Canada's 150th anniversaries. Arthur Shilling is one of the featured artists in this exhibition which includes some of his extraordinary portraits. 

Please note, a catered lunch is provided and served at 12pm and this hands-on session will run until 2pm.
