Thursdays, October 4, 11, 18, & 25    6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Instructor: Daphne Cote

With creative coaching and encouragement let professional artist Daphne Cote help you to take your oil painting in the direction you want. Do you want to be looser, tighter, more dynamic, more colourful, more subtle, more polished, more energetic? You set your own goals for your painting and you choose your own subject matter. Daphne will help you to achieve your goals to get you to take your painting to the next level.

About the Instructor:  Daphne Côté has been instructing art classes since 2004. She was drawn to the study of visual arts, and has been painting, since she was a small kid. She has been showing and selling her work for more than 18 years. The human figure is the main subject of her work, although she also dabbles in landscape and still life. Daphne likes to dig out the beauty, purpose, and essence in everything she sees.

‘Light in Life, both in people and our surroundings, inspire me.’ — Daphne
