* New for Fall 2020: Our base class prices have not increased, however we are adding a temporary fee of $10.00 per class series and $5.00 per workshop to begin to cover additional costs for sanitizing supplies, masks and gloves. We hope you understand our need to do this. Hopefully, by December 31st we will no longer have to ask for this assistance. Thank you for your continued support. Indoor classes will be limited to a maximum of 4 or 5 depending on the class. Outdoor classes (weather permitting) will be limited to 6 in the main tent, and 2 per auxilliary tent.

Julieta started painting in Acrylics at the end of 2012 , however following a watercolour class in 2013, fell in love with this medium. It is a challenging medium but very rewarding. In the majority of her work she tries to capture a sense of light. She takes pictures during morning walks and photographs of birds and still life at home, but flowers are her favourite subject.
Julieta belongs to the Oshawa Artist Association, and participated on the 50th Anniversary Juried Show as well as in a collective project “La Loteria Mexicana Reinterpretada” along with 54 other artist from nine different countries. Julieta’s card was #19 La Garza. The complete project was exhibited in Huelva, Spain and in Mexico, Michoacan and Mexico City. Since 2015 she has participated on the Peony Festival in Oshawa where public vote for the artwork, and placed second in 2016. Julieta has participated as a vendor during the festival since 2016. Her art work “Kissed by the Sun” was featured on the Peony Festival’s Postcard. Her art work “Cold ONE” entry for the ONE Condoms “Do it for Canada” contest was a Staff Pick Winner in 2017.

Last year Julieta started facilitating a class for beginners in watercolour at the Bowmanville Older Adult Association where she teaches basic watercolour techniques and colour mixing while painting a step by step project per class and at the Bowmanville Creek Retirement Home.

Always looking to improve her skills, Julieta continues taking lessons and workshops with local artists and online courses.
