"Draw and paint with me in your medium of choice"

Here's what our participants are saying:

"Saturday workshops with David and France are very inspiring. The venue is great and the themes are rich and varied. Having a full day to work on a project is fantastic and the opportunity to meet new folks and share experiences creates a great sense of community. France always makes sure there is coffee and tea and treats to keep our bodies fueled while David fuels our minds with information, inspiration and thoughtful suggestions." Gabriel Lepkey

"Les ateliers de David sont formidables. Nous touchons à une bonne variété de sujets et thèmes, et je suis libre de décider de ce que je ferai pendant la journée. J’apprends à mon propre rythme, mais David est toujours là pour me proposer des astuces, me donner des conseils ou répondre à mes questions. Grâce à l’ambiance détendue et au contact avec les autres participants, je m’épanouie dans la peinture tout en me perfectionnant. Bravo!" Diane

"David and France provide a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to explore new painting techniques and approaches, often using past masters as the muse. David's critique of the artist's work is gentle and supportive. These studio classes offer an excellent environment in which to grow and develop artistically. Besides, we have fun!" P. Lafferty

"J'apprecie beaucoup cette formule d'une journée autour d'un thème ou d'un peintre. Le dispositif est très confortable et convivial et laisse beaucoup de liberté aux participants. Les conseils aident beaucoup à la progression et ne sont jamais superflus. On bénéficie aussi des talents du groupe et on se sent encouragé." B.Castejon.

"The Art Workshops organized by Daivd and France Kearn are an inspiration to budding and amateur artists. I consider the day-long workshops a key component of my own artistic development. I have attended for several years at both Fall and Winter sessions and found the themes for the specific workshop both intellectually stimulating and technically supportive of my personal artistic endeavors. The quiet but observant knowledgeable and professional guidance from David and France, I find, helps one find one's own artistic voice. The joie de vive and support of participants at the workshops also contributes to an ambience of artistic achievement and learning. I would highly recommend the workshops for your own personal development and learning." P.Stone

"I have participated in several of David Kearn's recent art workshops. I have particularly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere David creates and the insights he provides on art in general and the individual paintings we are working on." Jackie Ballhorn

"I absolutely love coming to this class learning different techniques to become a better watercolour painter. With this creative environment you can accomplish amazing results with David's help." J. Peddie

"Break-a-Brush workshops have been great for trying new painting techniques and subject matter and helping me get out of my own "painter's rut". Tijs Creutzberg

"David's workshops are a creative blend of inspiration and individual coaching that generate a challenging and productive day every time. I am looking forward to my next Break a Brush!" Dianne Borg
