Sandra Mac Donald
Sandra’s fine art background began with college courses, but her style developed through years of personal study, research and teaching. The response to her work has encouraged Sandra to paint and teach full time. Sandra teaches at her home studio and also travel teaches. She has taught and exhibited at major art conventions in the U.S. and Canada.
Sandra Mac Donald has worked for the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in their Arts Smarts Program, bringing art and music into schools across the province. Sandra is currently a director of Art 1274 Hollis Gallery, past chair of the Hants County Arts Council, and East Hants Fine Art, and past manager of Winding River Art Gallery.
Sandra’s work has won numerous awards (Annapolis Highland Vineyard wine label (2011)) at juried and non – juried art shows and is held in both private, public and corporate collections in
Canada, United States, Europe, and around the world, including the Office of Tourism in Kumamoto, Japan.
Painting gives me an opportunity to escape into the world I create on canvas (a balance between imagination and reality, both on the same page)
She loves to paint and draw with a variety of media— often at the same time. Sandra also enjoys using nature as a playground. Often jumping at the chance to help whoever she may encounter, Sandra is excited to help participants experiment with art in a fun, laid-back atmosphere.
Sandra is excited to be part of the arts community and can’t wait to share all that she has learned about painting. “Painting is such a fun activity and is full of wonderful opportunities! This is a great and unique opportunity to be immersed in the world of painting and I am thrilled to be part of it! I propose a toast! Cheers!! Let’s get painting!”
She is looking forward to practicing her teaching skills as well as showing everyone the joy in painting and that everyone can be creative!
