with John Hartman

“Very creative, supportive environment. Some amazing work created by this group!”
“Loved the personal assistance with my skills as they apply to my work.”
This two-day masterclass is a very special opportunity for intermediate to advanced students to learn directly from artist John Hartman about his watercolour sketching technique. Hartman will guide participants through the creation of an individual artwork and provide critiques to help artists refine their skills. A private tour of Hartman’s solo exhibition at the McMichael is included with the workshop. Please note that in order to ensure a safe learning environment, the workshop will be limited to 10 participants. All participants will need to sign a COVID-19-related self-assessment form on each day of the workshop.

The safety and health of our participants and staff remain our top priority
We have implemented a number of new measures to ensure the health and safety of every participant enrolled in our adult workshops and classes. Participants will be seated at separate tables. Our staff have created seating arrangements to allow participants to sit at least 2 metres away from other participants. During the program, the instructor will ensure that all participants practice social distancing measures. Participants and staff are required to wear face masks at all times in accordance with York Region public health guidelines, and each learning space will be equipped with hand sanitation stations and a sink for thorough hand washing.
