IMA is pleased to welcome back Peter Corbett, one of western Canada’s premier plein air oil painters to once again lead a six-day guided painting residency in the beautiful and historic community of Wells, Barkerville and Bowron Lake. This residency includes accommodations at the IMA Nest building as well as, critiques, demonstrations, and ongoing hands-on work with Peter.
Participants will be given the option of staying in the new IMA residency multi-occupancy building “the Nest” or at any other accommodation provider in Wells. Each Artist will be provided with studio space, as well as, scheduled critiques, demonstrations, and ongoing hands-on work with Peter. Peter Corbett is considered by many to be one of western Canada’s leading plein air oil painters. Peter has been shown extensively in both public and commercial galleries, been the recipient of numerous awards and has been a mentor and teacher in various capacities. He is also a professional biologist, former outdoor adventure guide, and loves to share his enthusiasm for nature while painting out-of-doors.
“The 6 days spent with Peter Corbett as guide was a breakthrough for me in terms of how to paint quickly and effectively outside and I discovered new techniques and new paint in the studio. Peter, artist and scientist, is the perfect mentor for outdoor painting; he understands so much about the land, animals, water and atmosphere and he shares all that he knows and loves with enthusiasm and spirit. We painted in the town, at Bowron Lake, summits on the road, rivers and marshes, and clouds in the sky. We honed our field studies in the studio. We worked hard and long and it seemed like play.” ~Louise Drescher, Rossland, BC
