Join us virtually and work from your favourite landscape image to create your own painting. You will learn and work on the fundamentals of landscape painting, including composition, perspective, colour mixing, and paint application. You will receive plenty of individual attention and critique and will enjoy demonstrations by the instructor at each class.
Martha Johnson received a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Honours, from the University of Guelph, worked with and was mentored by Tom Hodgson (Painter’s 11). She is known for figurative and landscape painting as well as ephemeral animal sculptures typically seen in installation and photography. Her work often incorporates an environmental subtext. Martha has researched and developed a body of work based on a hundred-year-old narrative about an Albatross found in the Bay of Fundy. As a history painter SHADOW RED, a solo exhibition in 2017 referenced the hundredth anniversary of Tom Thomson’s death. She shares a family connection to the discovery of the artist’s remains on Canoe Lake (The Tom Thomson Mystery; Judge William T Little). A listed Canadian artist, her work is held public, corporate and in private collections worldwide. Martha’s work is carried by Art Interiors and White Wall North in Toronto.
