This class is perfect for beginners or painters who are rusty and need some direction to get started. You’ll learn the fundamentals you need to create paintings grounded in good technique. Learn how to prepare surfaces, maintain your brushes, use mediums, handle paint, and more!
Students will create a strong drawing layer before approaching the painting with value and colour. You’ll work both from photo reference and from life – starting by painting simple forms and progressing to a still life setup.
We will focus on:
Values and how they affect your painting
Drawing with your brush
Different surface mounts
Pigments and how they affect colour mixing
Choosing the right pallet
Colour mixing and harmony
Touch on design concepts

Kato Rempel was born in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She spent her early 20s and 30s in the graphic design industry when the computer age was blossoming. After working 14 years in that industry she escaped to South East Asia with her family. In Sri Lanka, Kato studied foreign cultures, art, and architectural design. The foreign landscapes that inspired her most were in Sri Lanka and India. Intertwined with these exotic travel adventures Kato studied oil painting extensively, and years later turned her passion for art into her career.
Upon her return to Canada Kato relocated to Kelowna, BC, where she had the privilege of continuing her studies in oil painting alongside two exemplary local artists Kristy Gordon and Jerry Markham. Now an accomplished professional artist,
Kato is constantly honing her craft and developing her style. In addition to public galleries, Kato’s artwork can also be found in private collections worldwide, from Canada to Australia, England, France, Germany, India, and the United States.
Kato has won several awards through the Federation of Canadian Artists juried shows and has completed a peer review advancement that now gives her the designation of SFCA (Senior Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists). She received her Elected Membership designation through the SCA (Society of Canadian Artists) in 2020.
