Only a Few Days Away

Georgetown Plein Air is only a few days away, and we’re so excited! There’s still time to sign up and spend a magical 2 day in Georgetown at the Kings Playhouse, learning and creating beautiful art!

As we countdown until Friday, we thought that we would take some time to introduce our stellar instructors.

Julia Purcell

Julia has been drawing and painting ever since her university days in Technical Theatre at Dalhousie University, where she earned a BA with Honours. She worked briefly at Neptune Theatre in Halifax NS but quickly realized her real passion was painting. While she acknowledges the value of the quality instruction she received while at Dalhousie in drawing, painting, design and lighting, she has rarely looked back on that profession.

She paints regularly and exhibits her work where it can be seen by the public in many commercial galleries. Julia devotes time to improving and learning about art making, whether it is in the form of a short online course through NSCAD in relief printing with printmaker Carrier Fisher or in earning an ALG Certificate for artists and art gallery workers led by staff at the Anna Leonowens Gallery. Julia give the occasional invited artist talk, on art related topics such as Colour Theory.
