“Art is one of the few things in the today’s world that is completely personal and original and expresses what a person is. It can inspire feeling, expression and passion in others. That’s the intrinsic value of art.”

Brent Heighton has been a professional artist for over 32 years. His career in fine arts has allowed him to travel throughout the world in search of adventure and subjects to paint. He is an explorer by nature, constantly trying out innovative techniques. He paints with intensity and economy, rarely wasting a motion or brush stroke, and is often called upon to give instruction in the art of painting. Brent Heighton’s watercolors, oils and acrylics have won many awards, and are found in corporate and private collections in more than 25 countries.

We can work in all mediums acrylics, oils and watercolours. As the class is focusing on composition and the use of brushes, etc. It does not matter what colours they bring that they are comfortable with.
