Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art!

Saturday and Sunday, December 16 and 17

9:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m

When we think of drawing, we generally think of images in black, grey and white. Introducing colour into your drawing demands a different mindset, particularly for those of you who might be a little intimidated venturing beyond the challenges of black and white. Offering gentle guidance, this class is for you! In fact, you’ll wonder why you never experimented with colour before.

Instructor: Françoise Issaly, artist and art educator

Françoise Issaly graduated from Université Paul Valery, Montpellier, and Université Michel de Montaigne, Bordeaux, where she obtained a DEUG in Plastic Arts, a Licence and a Master of Visual Arts, followed by a D.E.A. in with an honourable mention in “Communication, Arts & Spectacle.” Françoise undertook three years of research for her Ph.D. before moving to Canada in 1993.

For more than twenty years, she has been involved in the visual arts scene as a professional artist, art instructor, member of the Fine Art Collective and, since 2009, as the head of her own publishing house, Editions FrI, specializing in art books.

She has shown her work in both solo and group shows in Canada and the United States as well as in Europe, Malaysia and China. Represented by Artamo Gallery in Santa Barbara, California, her work can be found in many private collections (Canada, France, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom, United States).
