Where: Studio G, Creativity Studios, 2nd Floor, Room 214, Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning

Instructor: Anouk Jonker


Join TETT resident artist Anouk Jonker for a hands-on, guided introduction oil painting. The class is designed to guide beginners through all the steps of creating a painting from start to finish! This includes sketching out the composition, putting down the base colours, and finally building up paint layers. This class follows the skills used in Oil for Beginners, Part 1. However, all levels are welcome.

Please feel free to bring some pictures (magazine images, computer print-outs, photographs, etc) of subjects that you would be interested in painting. Students will be able to take their wet oil painting home at the end of the night. All materials included. 16+

Anouk was born in 1989 in Uithoorn, the Netherlands. She received her BFA in 2011 from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, and has since continued to develop her studio practice. She is currently a member of the TETT Centre for Creativity and Learning in Kingston, Ontario. She is also an MA student at Queen’s University in Technical Art History.

Although she continues her work as a portrait artist, her recent paintings reference issues in Western Art History, including early controversial methods of art conservation. She works primarily with oils on canvas with an impasto technique, but also likes to sketch, dab, drizzle, and erase. The paintings offer ambiguous narratives by piecing together various historical references such as Dutch still-lifes and early 19th century photographs. 

Anouk’s paintings have been exhibited internationally in countries such as Ireland, France, the Netherlands, and the United States. She has tried to combine her passions for art and travel, participating in several artist residencies.
