Explore the power of edges in this captivating 3-week course with award-winning Canadian artist Mel Williamson. Differing edges can seamlessly connect and/or distinctly separate elements within  compositions. Discover how to artfully manipulate the viewer’s path through your work, with exercises and examples.

Mel will guide you through employing edges to craft mood and clarify forms, through demonstrations and assignments. Unveil your unique hand in your edge manipulation. Every stroke tells a story and every boundary holds artistic potential!


Mel Williamson lives and paints on Salt Spring Island, BC, where she creates work in a variety of genres, including the human figure, landscape and still life. Her work has been described as “impressionistic, fresh and honest” and has a unique expressive quality, through bravura brushwork.

Known as a kind, generous and open teacher, Mel shares her knowledge and practices with others in an encouraging manner. She teaches online and in-person in Vancouver and Italy. She loves oil paint in all of its materiality and possibility, and believes there are no mistakes, only progress.

Mel is represented by three galleries in Canada: on Salt Spring Island and Sidney, BC and in Toronto, ON.
