A Big Fish: Mixed Media Drawing
Saturday , February 25
10:00am – 4:00pm
The Sea – one of art’s oldest subjects, is the framework for this new mixed-media drawing workshop. From mackerals to marlins, and humpbacks to halibuts, we’ll explore the ‘life aquatic’, using mixed-media drawing and painting tools, including: charcoal, India-ink, chalk-pastels, graphite, watercolour and acrylics, collage and more.
Like the Crow workshops from this past Fall, we’ll work in all sizes and everyone will have a fresh catch of art to hang on their walls!
Come down and “fish ‘em, don’t wish ‘em” – this course is for people of all ages, and all skill levels, who like to draw!
Students should bring:
- An apron
- All other materials will be provided
