Contemporary Fine Art Instructor
Doris fell in love with painting while she was living in Texas. Her neighbour invited her to come along to a painting class as a gesture of friendship and that changed her whole life. Painting has become a passion. Doris took a variety of courses in the U.S. and Canada.
In 2003, Doris was invited to Rivière-du-Loup as an artist for ‘La Marée aux 1000 Vagues’. She also received a Community Artist grant and had the opportunity to travel across Alberta as a guest artist. Doris was published in a desk calendar for the Association de la Femme in Quebec. Her work was chosen for a poster for the Association canadienne de l’éducation langagière francophone in 2004. Since that time, Doris has been featured in the magazines Art Avenue(Vancouver), Somerset Studio(U.S., Spring 2007) and Leisure Painter(U.K., Fall 2007). Doris was the featured artist for Capital Ex in Edmonton in 2009. In 2011, she also received the Sylvie Van Brabant award from the Regroupement artistique francophone de l’Alberta.
Doris prefers to work in mixed media to create a more contemporary effect. She is interested in textures, shapes and light. Her love of texture won her the Allesandra Bisselli Award with the Federation of Canadian Artists in Vancouver. Nature and the world around her are her inspiration. Doris travels a lot to teach her technique to youths and adults who share her love for creation.
Little points make big difference, so I've really learned from that. There are two minor points that should be addressed that could be less distracting. The black cursor should be moved off screen when recording (I kept thinking it was mine and tried to move it) and the sound volume from section to section was up or down and should be consistently the same. Overall, GREAT course. Thank you for sharing your wisdom! I'm looking forward to applying what you've taught me to some beautiful art.
Very poor with knowledge and added values
It's not worh time and money, could be shorten
Strickly for beginning beginners, in my opinion.
it was ok and very clear and follow along
Great! simple instructions, good explanations, and a very pleasant demeanour from the teacher. Enjoyed it a lot, would recommend!!
I found this very useful and helpful. Although I had some knowledge of materials and their uses I still got plenty out of this. This is another very good course by Doris Charest. I am looking forward to my next one.
Good information. Very basic but suitable for beginners.
