“My hope is that the objects I paint have the kind of intensity about them that incites the viewer to introspection.”

-Christopher Pratt

Christopher Pratt was born on December 9th, 1935.  He is a Canadian painter and printmaker. Christopher Pratt currently lives and works in St. Mary’s Bay, Newfoundland along the Salmonier River.  His identity as a Newfoundlander has a strong impact on his work.  His works are “filled with memories of people, places and events that have been filtered and clarified through his search for order and simplicity.”  His paintings have a timeless idealized quality to them.

Students used liquid watercolours to paint their night sky’s and followed the rules of a vanishing point to give their pieces perspective.
