Saturday, June 8
10:00am – 4:00pm

The Sea – one of art’s oldest subjects, is the framework for this mixed-media drawing workshop. From mackerels 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.

We’ll work in all sizes and everyone will have a fresh catch of art to hang on their walls! Come onboard and “fish ‘em, don’t wish ‘em” – this course is for people of all ages, and all skill levels, who like to draw!

Participants are invited to loan their pieces made during this workshop to a “Big Fish” 3-week exhibition in our School’s gallery (June 10 – June 28).
