Upcoming Summer Workshops 2019

Assemblage workshops

An intensive one and two day painting on found wood and other surfaces. Bring things you have found and have fun assembling them before you paint!

Three day painting workshops

Enjoy three days on beautiful Saltspring island painting. My studio and place for my workshops lies on our lovely pastoral acreage in the southend. We are 7 minutes walk from a swimming lake, great for a dip after a day in the studio.

In the workshop students receive lessons on composition, colour and proportions in oil paint. Various techniques are taught and ideas discussed, individually and in group critiques. Besides usual panels, we will look at using wood or found materials in our surfaces. I approach each student at their level, and help them find ways to focus on their goals.

"I have had a chance to take a couple of painting seminars from Stefanie Denz.  Not only have I enjoyed the days very much, in good painterly company and discussions, but I have come out of each session with a real step forward in my own process.  Stefanie’s style, I feel, is based on her trust in her students' own skill and intuition.  So she is there to give thatall important OK, you are doing just fine.  Then she casually suggests some wonderful technique, or tool, or vantage point and soon you have something you really love."

 "I can recommend Stefanie Denz's art workshops to anyone. She is a great teacher. I had never done oil painting, and was impressed how much I have learned in just one course. With Stefanie it does not matter how experienced or inexperienced you are, she is able to teach something new to all of us!"
