This course is meant for all levels and art experience.

Flowers, plants and more! We will explore layering, transparency, and luminosity as we collage, paint, and draw in our sketchbook. Draw flowers, plants and still life from observation, then draw from your imagination! Each class will be led by instructor demos and exercises.

This course will be informed by how social movements and changing philosophies have influenced still life art. Artists we will look at include historical artists Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, among others. By the end of the course students will have artwork, notes, and readings in the sketchbook to refer to for future use.

Instructor:  Samantha Walrod

Samantha Walrod (University of Alberta MFA 2013) is a collage artist, painter and educator living in Edmonton. Her work can be found in collections across Canada, including the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) Collection. Currently you can find her work on exhibit at various locations around Alberta as part of the AFA’s Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX) until 2025.  Walrod is best known for her figurative or still life collages, which are depictions of animal/human encounters or wilting flowers. Each body of work speaks to hope, loss, decay and the passage of time. In response to the ubiquity of digital imagery, tactility is very important to the artist’s practice. Images are incorporated with collage and digital technologies, while maintaining the exploration of paint.
