McIntosh will be continuing to work with artists in acrylics and watercolours this summer through the Okanagan School of the Arts Renaissance Studio in the garage at Leir House Penticton.  Angie taught a weekend workshop (PICTURES COMING SOON) was been planned to get other artists working in acrylics using a very simple technique of underpainting a value study and then laying in exciting colour as demonstrated in Angie's painting lesson number 3
Artists were able to come and paint and  mess up the School of the Arts Studio and not their own house and  even used their materials for a very reasonable $50 additional fee--great if you want to try before you invest in alot of materials.  The Okanagan School of the Arts will have more information about followup Wednesday afternoon acrylic painting sessions--you don't even have to have any supplies or previous experience and you will have alot of fun!  Youth are joining Angie for a workshop in watercolour in mid July.

Those up north will probably have a chance to paint with Angie in Stewart in early August when she will be in Stewart.  Contact Angie to sign up for that and there will be some classes in watercolours.

MEADOWLARK FESTIVAL PENTICTON:Angie led a plein-aire Angie Painting at Meadowlark 2009 above Skaha Lakepaint out in May 2009 at the Meadowlark Festival organized by OSCA in the South Okanagan.  Angie was once again Don Gayton telling us about the grasslands of the south okanagandelighted that ecologist, writer, and philosopher Don Gayton agreed to explain the habitat, biology and ecology of the White Lake region south of Don Gayton, grasslands ecologist leading hike above White LakePenticton to the group of artists who ended their day painting the hillside south of Kaleden looking towards Okanagan Falls.   A lovely afternoon was spent in the Ken Sohm sketching the grasslands in the South Okanagan.sunshine and Angie pretty much completed a fairly large acrylic that will just need a few touchups back in the studio. The group was interested in hearing about the local grasslands and ponderosa pine forest and alsoJoanne Beaulieu contemplating the scene by Skaha Lake about the role that artists might play to save and restore our natural habitat.
Artists wishing to help protect the fragile Okanagan habitat are asked to join Angie to discuss organizing a paintout during the 2010 Meadowlark Festival. For more information  contact Angie.

En Plein Air:  from a mailout by the Penticton Art Gallery
En Plein Air is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Artists have long painted outdoors but in the mid-19th century working in natural light became particularly important to the painters of the Barbizon school and the Impressionists. The introduction of paints being sold in tubes and the "Box Easel", with its telescopic legs and built-in paint box and palette made painting in oils truly portable. The ability for an artist to take their studio out into the wilderness opened up infinite possibilities and allowed artists to truly capture the spirit and mood of the landscape. While this began to take firm root in Europe, here in Canada painters like Paul Kane and the early C.P.R. painters began to take advantage of this new found freedom and ventured into the uncharted landscape in search of the unknown. The most famous advocates of this new found freedom and the idea of painting en plein air were the members of the Canadian Group of Seven and Tom Thomson who traveled out of the city in search of the natural beauty of the landscape creating iconic paintings which helped galvanize a sense of national identity. We are pleased to offer this event as an introduction to painting en plein air and hope that it will bring greater understanding and appreciation of this tradition and in a small way strip away some of the mysteries behind the creation of art.

Artist Angie McIntosh has created a simple rustic painting studio in an old house in Stewart BC which is near some of the most scenic painting locations of Western Canada and  Alaska, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  In the summer of 2008 artists from all around gathered together to paint in this amazing inspiring location and join McIntosh for a painting retreat. Read about the first Bear Festival in 2007.  It is wonderful to be in the north in the summer and early fall to paint. If you wish to participate next year contact McIntosh .  Remember the wonderful old days when Group of Seven artists inspired each other on painting trips to the Canadian countreyside?  Angie was also inspired by walking through Renoir's home in southern France. The comraderie and inspiration felt and created by the artists who met at Renoir's home must have been amazing.  Seeing the art works left in the rooms by his artist friends who would visit and paint moved her and so she is trying to create a similar environment right here in northern BC.  Click here to learn about joining McIntosh as an artist in residence at her art retreat in Stewart, BC, in northern Canada, minutes from Alaska.  Please note that the Art Retreat of the North is not available for commercial rental or as a B&B--it is Angie's place of art and creativity.  If you wish to work there or join other artists there you must contact Angie first.  Email or phone in Canada 250 809-7932.
