Julie Wurtele has studied Fine Art in England, UK and Dundas Valley School of Art, Ontario. She regularly exhibits her work in galleries an juried shows across Ontario. She is a member of the Burlington Fine Arts Association and art teacher for Oakville Art Society and Grimsby Art Gallery as well as an independent instructor for private clients. Classes include drawing, painting, abstraction, colour theory, collage, wood engraving, clay crafts, card making, jewellery and floral arranging.
She has developed a unique teaching method using shapes and symbols children and adults can relate to, breaking the project down step by step and encouraging the development of individual styles. She believes anyone can learn to be a great artist. She teaches art and crafts from kindergarten to seniors in various locations across the GTA, runs childrens birthday art parties, ladies paint nights and offers private art therapy to children and adults.
As well as teaching, Julie also leads an independent consortium of artists called the "Group of Three" in Flamborough who meet each week to share their skills and experiences in colour, perspective and observation. She has found this team approach has allowed each artist to progress their talents into new areas. "I want to encourage others to see the benefits of working together as a group of artists and the incredible impact a group environment" . Check out our show currently on at the Dundas Museum until July 13th!!
