What better day than All Hallow’s Eve to explore your creative dark side with a bold and expressionistic day of creating fantastic birds full of cunning and imagination, myth and magic!
We will explore creating crows, ravens, and rooks and maybe some other mythic birds of prey using mixed-media drawing and painting tools, including: charcoal, chalk-pastels, graphite, watercolour and acrylics, India-ink, collage and more.
We’ll work in all sizes and everyone will have a take-away piece of art to hang on their walls or on their doors for Halloween night!
Come and make some bold, “comical, grotesque, stupid, cunning, ambiguous” Art!
