FCA-COC Monthly Meetings

Our next meeting will be on Monday April 8th, 2024 at 6:30 PM.   It will be a Zoom meeting. Members will be sent a link.  If you are a non-member and would like to check us out, please contact kitbell@shaw.ca for a link.

This month spend an evening exploring a new surface for pastel. Susan Woolgar will demonstrate on an alternative surface that is easy and affordable. She will do an underpainting with a technique involving alcohol and pastel. She will discuss her thought process of building a painting from value pattern to palette.  

Susan Woolgar was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1955 and raised in Calgary. Her interest in the arts began at a very young age, and she knew she wanted to pursue it as a career by the time she entered high school.

Susan is influenced by the variety of landscapes found here in Canada, and loves to create works based on these beautiful locations.

In addition to creating her own work, Susan also teaches throughout Alberta and BC.  Although she has been focusing on acrylic, her classes range from instruction in watercolour and pastel to mixed media and print making. 

Susan continues to work towards an artistic vision that is continually changing and growing. She believes that she will always be adapting her style, and looks forward to the challenge of creating new pieces.

Visit Susan's website.

For those unable to make the meetings, the presentations are available on the chapter's Youtube channel.
