Registrations for this workshop are now closed.

Michael Peters
Wednesdays, January 13 – March 24, 2021
6:30pm – 9:00pm

This workshop has been cancelled. 

One of art’s oldest subjects – The Sea – is the framework for this new drawing course, designed to explore one’s connections between the sea, nature, history and culture.

Using a variety of artist’s tools, media and techniques, including: charcoal, dry-pastels, graphite, watercolour and acrylics, India-ink, collage and more, participants will develop artwork through a series of simple, studio-based exercises designed to explore the fundamental principles and elements of observational drawing, such as: line, texture, perspective, tone and colour, composition and unity. From whales to waves and sharks to shipwrecks, this course is for people of all ages, and all skill levels, who like to draw!

Please Note: No class will be held on Wednesday, March 17 (March Break). 

Materials provided.
