Les 7e et 8e année de l’École Sainte-Anne peinture des casiers pour qu’ils ressemble à une bibliothèque géante. Ce projet est fait avec le programme,  ”une artiste, une école. Nous avons commencé à peindre avec 2 classes et nous continuerons avec d’autre classes jusqu’à la fin du mois de mai. Ont va voir combien de casier ont pourra peindre pour paraitre comme de grand livre!

Grade 7 and 8s of École Sainte-Anne are painting lockers to look like a giant library. This is project done through, ”one artist, one school”. We have started painting with 2 classes and will continue to paint with other classes until the end of May. Lets see how many lockers get to look like books!

Les élèves ont chacun choisi un livre et ils vont peindre le dos de ce livre sur la porte de leur casier.

Each student has chosen à book, they will paint the spine of the book on the door of their lockers.

Here is a before photo; Voici une photo avant de commencer;

First step; sanding, and washing the outside of their lockers. Then priming!

Première étape; sablé, lavé de dehors des casiers. Ensuite apprêter!

Les élèves dont j’ai eu la chance de peindre avec, était très impressionnants. Ils ont travailler fort et ont montrer leur talent d’artistes. J’aime beaucoup encourager les arts, donc lorsque les élèves me demandait si qu’il pouvait peindre une tell image qui se trouve sur leur livres, je leur demandais si qu’ils était confortable de le faire et si oui, je leur donnait la peinture et pinceaux nécéssaire pour faire leur oeuvre. Il y en a que j’ai guider un peu mais en gros je leur fesait une suggètions de pinceaux et combinaison de couleur. Je montrait comment mélangé ou faire des dégradé de couleur ou bien des indices pour reproduire l’image qu’ils voulait reproduire sur leur casiers.

The students that I was painting with where impressive. They were hard working and showed impressive talent. I love to encourage art so when students would come to me and say they would like to paint something specific from the cover of their book, I would usually just answer, well if you are comfortable doing that, I can give you the paint and brushes that you need. Some wanted a little guidance but really I just suggested the paint brush to use and some colour combinations, I showed how to do a blend of colours, in some cases I showed how to look at the image that they wanted to reproduce. In order for them to replicate it properly.

Ils ont appris à peindre avec un rouleau, et pinceaux. Ils ont appris qu’ils doivent apprêter avant de peindre, ensuite vernis lorsque fini. Ils ont appris de protèger ce qui est déja peinturer avec du papier journal. Ils ont même appris à garder leur environment de travail propre, d’essuyer à mesure avant que la peinture sêche. Ils ont toute très bien fait. Je m’ai fait dire que les corridors n’ont jamais été si silencieux avec un si grand nombre d’étudiant dedans!

They learned how to paint with a paint roller and paint brush. They learned that we must prime first then paint, then varnish. They learned how to protect what you painted already by using tape or newspaper to block off areas such as the neighbours locker or areas on their locker that didn’t need this new colour that was being applied. The students learned to keep their environment clean. If any spill we must pick it up before it dries. They were awesome about all of this. I was told many times that the hallways were never that quiet with that amount of students in it!

En fin de projet, j’ai peinturer avec envrion 120 étudiants! Voici plusieurs photo de projet final. Quelqu’un va aller leur montrer à faire le lettrage sur leur casiers pour finir, mais ces beaux comme tel! Regardez pour vous même…

In the end I painted with aprox 120 students! Here are many photos of the finish product. The students were very proud of their work, as they should be. I am also very proud of them. Someone will come and work with them to do the lettering on their lockers to finish it all up. But for now, they still look awesome! See for yourselves…

We made the news! Kids and teacher talk about the mural at 30:59sec in this clip:

Projet GénieArt avec une classe de 2e année à l’École des Bâtisseurs!

En 2e année, les élèves parlent à propos de leur communauté, donc leur enseignante à demander à la classe de discuter de ce qu’ils voient dans leur communauté et de faire des dessins à ce sujet. Voici leurs dessins;

 ArtSmart project with a grade 2 class at École des Bâtisseurs!

In this grade they talk about their community. So the teacher had the children discuss what they see in their community and then make some drawings of some of these things that meant something to them. Here are their drawings;

IMG_4265

À gauche, en haut de cette photo vous voyez un livre que j’ai d’ouvert. J’utilise ce livre aussi pour l’inspiration. Nous allons faire notre murale dans le style de cette artiste. L’enseignante aime ce style d’image avec les contour noir et couleur vive, donc j’ai pris ce livre et les images des jeunes et j’ai parti faire mes croquis!

Voici le croquis final que j’ai fait. Ceci après avoir fait certain d’avoir ajouter une parti de chaque images des jeunes et aussi après avoir pris en considération la conversation que les élèves ont eu avec leur enseignantes au sujet de leur communauté. Ils ont mentionné plein de choses qu’ils aiment faire dans leur ville!

On the far left at the top I have an open book which I was also using for inspiration for the style of image that I’ll give to the mural. The teacher liked that type of loose imagery and colour so I took that book and the students images and away I went to do some sketching!

Here is the sketch I ended up with… this after making sure to add an image from each of the children’s drawings, and taking into consideration the conversations the teacher had with the students. Them telling her all the things they like to do in their community!

IMG_4335

Les élèves ont mentionner qu’ils aiment marché et conduire leur bicyclette sur le pont de piétons et de traverser la rivière! Ils aiment prendre une crème glacer au phare, mettre leur pied dans la fontaine en ville…ou toute leur corps! Ils aiment le festival de jazz, faire de la bicyclette, du bateau, marcher leur chien et voir des spectacles au Playhouse. Une chose que la plupart des élèves ont dessiner était des pommiers! Ils aiment aller aux pommes! Donc, j’ai fait certain d’avoir tout ces choses représenter dans l’image finale. Vous allez remarquer que les arbres ont été pris directement de leurs images. J’aime que certain avait des pomme sans gravité! Les voiture, fleures, bicyclette, chiens, nuage et beaucoup d’autre image sont prise directement de l’images des jeunes aussi. Je voulais qu’ils reconnaissent leurs dessins sur le murale.

Un des élèves ma fait un dessin du mural après que j’ai fait la présentation du dessin finale à leur classe!

The students talked about loving to be able to walk or ride their bikes across the river on the walking bridge. They love having ice cream at the lighthouse, and putting their feet..or whole body..in the fountain at City Hall! They enjoy the jazz festival, biking, boating, walking their dogs and taking in shows at the Playhouse. And one thing most kids drew were apple trees! They love picking apples!  So, in this image I made sure to have all of those activities. You’ll notice the trees are taken directly from their images. I loved how some of them had apples without gravity!! The car and flowers are taken directly from their images, as well as many other parts of the final image. I want them to recognize their drawings on the mural.

One little fella made me a drawing of our mural, after I had showed them the image I had put together for them

IMG_4352

La première étape – Préparation du mur et une couche d’Apprêt! Les concierges du Centre ont fait du beau travail à préparer le mur pour y enlever les trous et le laver pour moi. Moi j’ai placé la couche d’Apprêt. Même juste ceci paraissait mieux! Mais l’image finale aura bien plus de couleur!!

First step – Patching the wall and priming!  The janitors of the Centre did a fine job of patching the wall and having it all cleaned up for me. I then came along with my primer and gave it one coat. Just that looked great! But the final image will not have much white in it!!

IMG_4242

2e étape – dessiner les lignes de l’arrière plan. Nous avons installé un projecteur pour faire ceci pour faire certain d’avoir les bonnes proportions.

Step 2 – drawing the lines for the background image. We set up a projector for this to make sure the proportions where good.

Ensuite j’ai installer notre endroit de travail avec tout les dessins coller contre le mur pour avoir notre inspiration près de nous lorsqu’ont sera à la tâche. Je veux faire certain de bien représenter les images de nos artistes! Donc maintenant, les images sont tout monter, la peinture est acheter, nous sommes prêt à peindre!

Then I set up our work area with all our inspiration stuck to the walls around our mural. I want to make sure to stay true to the original little artists images! So, images up and painting purchased, we’ll be ready to paint!

Les élèves ont roulé les couleurs de l’arrière plan. Ils étaient exciter de commencer ce murale! Je doit dire que ces très plaisant de travailler dans cet environnement! Les jeunes, pas seulement de cette classe, ont toujours de beau commentaire à dire, à propos du murale à mesure qu’ont ajoute des couleurs. Ont y place juste le ciel par exemple, et les jeunes sont tellement content, ont penserait que le murale est fini! Ça ne prend pas grand chose pour contenter ces jeunes. Voici des photos lorsqu’ont faisait la peinture de l’arrière plan;

The students got to roll out the background colour and paint in other areas, to have the background completed. They were very excited to start! I must say that it is SO fun to work in this environment! The kids, not only from this classroom, but any of the students from the school who would pass by would have wonderful compliments and very nice remarks as we put the colour up. We just put in the sky and you’d think the image was done! Really fun to be working here! It doesn’t take much to make these kids happy. Here are some photos of some of them painting and the background getting done;

J’ai entré aujourd’hui pour ajouter de la profondeur à notre arrière plan de murale. Voici ce que nous avons jusqu’à maintenant;

I just went in today to give the background a little depth before putting in the images. So here is the background now;

IMG_4525

Vous voyez les livres dans le bas de l’image? Ces ceux que nous utilisons pour inspiration du style de peinture. J’essaye de rester dans les mêmes teints. Voici une photo de prêt d’une de ces images du livre.

At the bottom you see some books..these are the ones that we use along with the students images, for inspiration, for the style of our drawing. The style is loose and I’ll try to stay within those same colours. Here is a photo of one of the pages.

IMG_4526

La prochaine fois que j’y vais, je vais projeter notre image finale au mur et le tracer au crayon. Les élèves pourront ensuite le retracer avec de la peinture noire et remplir les couleurs. Il y a une belle grande fenêtre à coter de notre murale, cette image sera une belle extension de la ville de Fredericton que nous voyons de notre fenêtre!

J’ai projeté l’image sur le mur pour le tracer au gros crayon;

Next I’ll be projecting all the little images on the wall and tracing that out ready for the students to paint it and fill it all in with colour. There is a nice big window next to this mural. This will be an extension of the Fredericton they see out the window!

We did some very nice work on our mural. I projected the image on the wall to trace it with my big 9B pencil;

Ensuite les jeunes ont venue tracer les images aux pinceaux et de la peinture noire. Ils mon impressionner par leur talent! Ils ont eu la chance de venir plus qu’une fois pour avoir l’image de toute retracer.

Then the students came and traced the images with a paint brush and black paint. They impressed me with their talent! They all got the chance to come more than once to trace some of the images.

L’image s’en vient très bien!!

The mural is coming along nicely!!

Ont travail encore à tracer les détails, ont s’amuse bien en chemin! Il y a des élèves qui chante lorsqu’il peint, d’autre qui ricane avec leur amies qui peint aussi en même temps qu’eux. J’aime bien les voir aller dans leur propre manière avec leur peinture!

We are still tracing the details, and having fun along the way!! Some of the students sing while they paint and others joke around with the friends that are there painting with them. I love watching them get into their painting while having fun.

L’image est maintenant toute tracer et ont y met de la couleur!!! Yay!

The image is now all ready for us to add colour!! Yay!!

IMG_0186

Voici le murale maintenant;

Look at the mural now;

IMG_0197Nous avons continuer d’y ajouter de la couleur et des détails…

We have continued adding colour and details…

Après avoir travailler fort, le murale est fini! Il reste seulement des détails d’artiste et du vernis!!

After lots of hard work, the wall is done! The artist have a few details to do and then time to varnish!!

IMG_4782_2

The students signed their names and then varnished the mural;

Summer Time Fun

Posted: June 17, 2015 in Uncategorized

This art collection shows the three main styles that I work in, with my acrylic paints.

  • My beach paintings: These are the waves, beach scenes, waterways or water sports. I grew up near the ocean, and now I miss it terribly, so I paint it!
  • My music paintings: These are completely influenced by music. I choose a song, and then only listen to that song while painting on my canvas. The music directs the colours and movements of my brush strokes. The end result is my visualization of that song as a painting.
  • My pourings: These look somewhat like oil drips. For these paintings I use only paint, a medium and the canvas. Much of the work is done in my head before I actually put it down on the canvas.

Summer Time Fun poster

These are my paintings in my Summer Time Fun show!

To purchase any of these paintings, please contact me directly: 451-5165 or lise@studiorichard.ca

I’ve explained below each image the style that I have used in making it. If you have any questions or comments please write to me; lise@studiorichard.ca

Sunset 60x30

Sunset 60×30

Sunset is one of my beach paintings. I tried to capture a sunset that that my parents witnessed from the beach one summer night. My mom took a beautiful photo and used it as reference to capture that moment.

80s 16x48

80s 16×48

80’s is one of my music paintings. For this one, I listened to 80s music while painting it. Brought back lots of fun memories!

''Teenage Dream'' 20x20

”Teenage Dream” 20×20

''Teenage Dream 2'' 20x20

”Teenage Dream 2” 20×20

Teenage Dreams (Diptych) is a pouring painting. I worked at having the sides match from one canvas to the other. It matches on more than one side, so it can be mounted different ways.  SOLD

''After Midnight'' 36''x48''

”After Midnight” 36”x48”

After Midnight is another pouring painting. This to me looks like an under water image of a big wave.

''Bow River'' 48''x36''

”Bow River” 48”x36”

Bow River is one of my beach paintings. It is a popular view of the Three Sisters mountains from the Bow River in Canmore Alberta.

''Tofino'' 30x24

”Tofino” 30×24

Tofino is another beach painting. This is a scene from my first time surfing. I surfed in Tofino with my sister and when we walked back to our camp spot, one of the other sites looked like this. I thought it was beautiful!

''Surfer Crossing'' 30x24

”Surfer Crossing” 30×24

Surfer Crossing is a beach painting. The sign on the bottom left corner is an actual signage that can be found in Hawaii. I played with words on this one, I have the surfer duck diving the wave, so she is ‘crossing’ the wave, hence, Surfer Crossing.

Kawanka 24x24

Kawanka 24×24

IMG_0636

Kawanka is a beach and music painting. This one I tried combining both styles. I went all out and even did the sides all funky!  SOLD

Breaking Dawn 24x24

Breaking Dawn 24×24

Breaking Dawn is a beach painting. I wanted to show the power and strength of a wave in this one.

Funky Monkey 36x24

Funky Monkey 36×24

Funky Monkey is another technique altogether! I tried something new with this one. I love the shape of a bicycle so I combined my love of colour with the shape of a bicycle. For this one, I didn’t even use a paint brush! I used my hands and the tubes of paint directly on the canvas. I really enjoyed making this one and plan on doing more of these, perhaps with different shapes. SOLD

Fun Run 60x30

Fun Run 60×30

Fun Run I did to music. This was inspired completely by one song…’Love Runs Out’ by One Republic. I just listened to that song when painting this one. So this is how I see that song as a painting! If you look closely you’ll see a roller coaster and a ferris wheel. SOLD

Lucky Stripes 30x24

Lucky Stripes 30×24

Lucky Stripes, I did with my pourring technique. I worked this one in layers. I usually don’t do that with my pourrings but I wanted to control the lines and get a little texture.

Secret Garden 30x24

Secret Garden 30×24

Secret Garden I also did with my pourring technique. I love these colours and the contrast of the pink with the turquoise. To me this painting is happy yet there is some mystery to it. This is why I chose that name!

IMG_4645

Dreamin’ is one of my beach paintings. This image is so relaxing to me. It’s relaxing to look at this surfer from underwater and the idea that the surfer is just sitting, bopping around with the little waves while waiting for the wave to surf is also a relaxing moment. She is wearing an anklet that I beaded with a real seashell.

This painting is SOLD.

''To the Beach'' 12x36

”To the Beach” 12×36

To The Beach is one I call my beach painting as well. They are all signs leading to various beaches. I had fun naming some local small beaches and other popular big ones in very different parts of the globe. I thought that would be fun all on one post!

Ces deux morceaux de casse tête sont les pièces sur lesquels les jeunes de l’École des Bâtisseurs on peint en mai 2015 pour aider leur transition avec la nouvelle école. Tout le monde sont bien content d’avoir une nouvelle école qui donnera plus de place à tout, mais les ami(e)s vont être séparé.

CMA poster

 

Acadie du Monde

Acadie du Monde, 36×36 on gallery wrapped canvas – SOLD  

This was painted while listening to a song of the same name. The song inspired the colours and movement of this painting. I listened to the same song throughout the whole process to make sure to stay true to what I felt the song would look like visually. I finished it up with some beading here and there in the painting to represent the Aboriginal drumming in the music.  This painting is SOLD but will be on display, with other paintings I will have for sale, at the Grand-Falls NB show ”A tribute to l’Acadie” during the Congrès Mondiale Acadien, Aug 2 and 3rd 2014 at 8pm.
