10 ways you benefit from taking an art workshop.

You take our workshops for many reasons. Sometimes it is to enhance what you already know and leap to that next plateau. Other times it is to step out of your comfort zone and learn something completely new.

The rewards of taking an art workshop are numerous. In order to inspire, we thought it might be helpful to share your thoughts with other artists, so we asked around the studios and compiled this list of 10 ways you benefit from taking art workshops.

Don't forget to add your own reason below...


Teens' artwork selected for Calgary Stampede Showcase

2013 Grade 12 Western Art Scholarship

Teens' artwork selected for Calgary Stampede Showcase

Robyn Feluch takes painting classes at Swinton's with Michelle Grant (2012 Outstanding Artist Achievement Award) and is making great strides toward greatness. We are always very proud when our students achieve something great.

Here is a bit of the Western Wheel article:

When a DeWinton teen set to work painting a buffalo resting comfortably in the snow last winter she didn't dream it would be admired by thousands from around the world.

Seventeen-year-old Robyn Feluch's buffalo captivated a panel of five judges with a history in art. The painting, titled "The Story Begins Here" placed second out of 16 entries from 13 communities in the rural category for the Calgary Stampede Western Art Auction's Grade 12 Western Art Scholarship competition.

Rhonda Malik - Student Feature

The Western Art Collector magazine (May 2013) features one of our favourite students. Rhonda Malik takes classes with Michelle Grant (2012 Outstanding Artist Achievement Award) and her paintings have been juried into the Atlanta Equestrian Exhibition and the Calgary Stampede Wester Art Show Gallery.

Her art reflects a love for animals and the outdoors and shows a strong connection that humans share with all creatures and the relationship we have with nature.
