Friday August 9, and Saturday August 10, 2019, from 10am to 4pm, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, join us for a spectacular and expressive workshop combining the human figure and flowers with the inspiring and talented Donna Downey! 

Day 1 involves a guided lesson, live painting and demonstration explaining Donna's painting process for composition, paint sketching, colour mapping and refining the details.  We will paint together and Donna will be helping you develop your canvas based on her painting model.

On Day 2 we begin a new painting!  This time, Donna paints along side, modeling and demonstrating techniques, as well as encouraging you to paint a figurative composition of your own choosing!  She will be hands-on for guidance as well as encouragement for both days. 

This is an AMAZING opportunity to experience Donna's expressive style, electric personality, and encouraging teaching style with this Traveling Workshop.

Refund Policy: Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable. What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.

Emergency Cancellations: In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.

If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to Liz at and you will be put on a waiting list.
