The goal of this class is to work on four larger works with an eye towards creating works that could be show entries in the future. Students will bring their own intended reference photos and will work together with the instructor on making these into successful artworks for show entries. To comply with show requirements or personal targets, each student will work from their individual reference. Students are asked to bring multiple references to the first class to discuss which one will work best.

About the Instructor
A classically trained artist, Zan is the recipient of several awards for plein air painting in Ontario. He is the founder and past president of Ontario Plein Air Society, a group of Ontario painters dedicated to painting the Canadian landscape from life.
I paint because I fall in love with a moment. Sometimes I capture it successfully, and other times, too many times, I fail. I am proud to say that my artwork has seeped into private collections from Australia through Europe to North America. I cherish all my collectors and value their choice to own my artwork. In a way, a work of art is not whole.
