Fridays, February 2, 9, 23 and March 2

Learn the multiple techniques of handling this highly misunderstood medium.

Dominique Payette started out as a classical dancer. She then founded Dominique et compagnie, a children’s book publisher, garnering a number of prizes, including four Governor General’s Awards. After graduating with a Bachelor’s in art history, she took a number of workshops to perfect her technical skills. Drawing classes at the Saidye Bronfman Centre and creative workshops with Seymour Segal greatly contributed to her creative development. Her works have been presented in several group shows, including Les Femmeuses, at Pratt & Whitney, in 2005, where Loto-Québec acquired one of her works. In 2006, Dominique Payette presented her first solo show in Montreal, Part de jeux, Part de vie, at Galerie Le 1040. Then, in October 2009, her series “Présence” was shown at the Agora Gallery in New York. In June 2010, the Hôtel Nelligan invited her to produce fifteen new paintings for the exhibition Nelligan vu par…, an event lauded by collectors and connoisseurs alike.

Following in the footsteps of William Morris (1834-1896); theory and practice

Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art !

Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and15 

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

William Morris, the 19th-century English artist, was one of the Pre-Raphaelites and a founder of the famous Arts & Crafts movement. Following a short introduction to his creative approach, participants will be invited to create a work inspired by the floral motifs of the English countryside. Notions of composition, colour harmony and image transfer, as well as the technique of solid gouache painting will be on the menu. Gouache, a little-known technique, provides a smooth matte finish. This session is open to everyone, in a celebration of spring.

Session led by Marie Louise Pépin,  Artist and Art Educator

Marie Louise Pépin taught visual arts and art history at the Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne in Montreal for many years. As an artist, she has long been interested in the technique of illumination, particularly the insular manuscripts of the Early Middle Ages.

A keen promoter of international education, in 2004, she founded a major collaboration focused on artistic exchanges between Quebec and Cuba, specifically the Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne and the Academia de Artes Plásticas El Alba in Holguín. 

Numerous projects arose from this partnership, including three major exhibitions presented in the Michel de la Chenelière Educational Spaces at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition International Postal Art, presented in 2014, was the culmination of this collaboration. Over 1300 works were received from 12 countries.

Contemplation, Emergence and Spontaneous Brush

Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art

Saturday and Sunday, May 12 and 13 

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

Beginning with short guided periods of silent meditation, students will settle into spring’s quietude. As natural energies gather and rise, various brush techniques with ink and colour are used, and patterning and spontaneous marks flow. Japanese washi and other Asian papers, plus small canvases will support our subtle and personal imagery, whether naturalistic or completely abstract. A great Mother’s Day gift for that (sometimes stressed out) special person!

Instructor: Heather Midori Yamada, artist, art educator and yoga instructor

Dividing her time between Montreal and Victoria, Heather Midori Yamada is a visual artist and teacher who works with Japanese “washi” papers in paintings, collage and installations. When she started out in Toronto’s Open Studio in the 1980s, Heather primarily used washi in monotypes, which explored natural plants as imagery as well as actual plants in embossing. These washi etched and embossed monotype-print constructions were often marouflaged onto Western paper supports and evolved into mixed media and collage paintings. In her recent move to Victoria, B.C., Heather will continue her research of new plant life in ikebana, in shodo, (Japanese brush) watercolour and acrylics on washi papers and mixed media canvas. Heather continues to offer Creativity Retreats in Nature, which combine fine arts techniques, Japanese brush and washi papers, watercolour and acrylics with exercises in hatha yoga and guided meditation.
