- A journal (with paper heavy enough to paint on)
- Your choice of medium
- Surfaces of choice (140LB watercolor paper, canvas, board etc)

- I generally use flat brushes from 1/4 inch to 2 inches
I will be teaching using acrylics, collage, watercolor crayons and other mixed media.
Connie Geerts was born in 1965, the youngest of six children raised on a farm in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. It was a fairly idyllic childhood filled with lots of unsupervised exploring and evenings spent with her siblings drawing at the kitchen table.
Geerts started her professional art career with a move to the West coast in 1987. After exploring many materials she fell in love with acrylic painting and has been working in the medium ever since. During this time, she also worked as a news videographer, and started creating sculpture, joining the Vancouver Island Sculptors Guild. Geerts began showing her work professionally in 1997, and has been consistently represented by a number of galleries since that time.
