    If you want to learn the basics of how the old masters painted, how to paint in oils in a very health friendly way, this is the course for you! This 5 day art retreat workshop is a condensed course with master glazer, Kathy Marlene Bailey. She will teach you the basics of Renaissance glazing processes and will finetune your skills in: colour perception and mixing, rendering, value perception, brushwork and depth illusion. You will learn valuable skills suitable for any artist, both novice and advanced.

    Kathy Marlene Bailey lives in Burlington, Ontario. She graduated from the University of Toronto in Art Education and Sheridan College in Creative Arts and ever since, has been a practicing professional artist. In her first year of university, she had the pivotal experience of learning traditional glaze oil painting. Kathy is one of a handful of artists in Canada who works in this highly specialized field. Although her artistic focus has been exclusively painting for a number of years, Kathy, from about 1994 to 2004, had an extensive career focus as a sculptor, primarily making small, fine, handmodeled figurative sculptures.

    She has participated for many years in commercial galleries, art events, and juried shows, three major exhibitions (one solo), and has won many awards for her painting. Kathy's work is currently being shown at the Christine Parker Gallery in St. John's.

    As a child, Kathy grew up in Toronto with two artist parents, and cottaged in Haliburton County, where from being a tiny girl, she developed a fascination for nature and all its complexities, especially the dancing water. The Renaissance methods of oil painting she learned in university became an ideal medium for painting and exploring this wonder of water. The method has limitless gages to tweak and pull colour, value, contrast and colour quality. She could make transparency, translucency, opacity, light and dark, vivid and quiet colours dance together in rich harmonic melody, dancing to her eyes and soul.

    She has completely enjoyed her extensive art teaching experiences where she "passes the baton" while specializing in technical training courses in traditional glaze oil painting, fundamental and advanced colour, as well as creativity skills development.
