Events Description

Summer is a great time to take in the fresh air and sunshine and get outdoors to draw and paint! Observe how light affects colour and learn colour theory, composition, drawing, and painting techniques. This is a great opportunity for artists interested in working with landscapes. Students will meet in the Studio on the first day and go to other locations during the course of the week.


Michel Saint Hilaire is a self-taught artist, who began working mostly with pencil. After 2 years of formal education in the Fine Artist Diploma Program at the University of Manitoba he started creating work using both paint and dry mediums on one surface.

Michel has had solo and group exhibitions in diverse cities in several commercial galleries in western Canada. The most recent exhibition is currently being shown at Elevation Gallery in Canmore, Alberta. He also had a solo exhibition at the contemporary artist run center La Maison Des Artistes entitled Horizon in 2009 and an exhibition entitled Transitions in 2006 at « La Galerie » in the Franco-Manitoban Cultural Centre in Winnipeg.

For several years he has created diverse large-scale murals throughout the city of Winnipeg. His paintings are part of various collections: private and corporate, including the Province of Manitoba, Investors Group and Manitoba Hydro.
