SECOND DATE: Another Murder of Drawings: Drawing & Painting Crows
Sunday, October 24
10:00am – 4:00pm
With respect to Provincial guidelines, our School will require students to provide proof of full vaccination (two doses) effective October 4th. To learn more please read our “Covid-19 Pandemic Protocols“
This workshop has been so popular we’ve added this second workshop the following day, Sunday, September 24!
A return to the roost! What better time than the month of All Hallow’s Eve to explore your creative, dark side with a bold and expressionistic day of making fantastic birds — full of cunning and imagination, myth and magic!
Linked thematically to the art exhibit in the School’s Gallery, we’ll explore creating crows, ravens, and rooks, maybe even some magpies and treepies, using mixed-media drawing and painting tools, including: charcoal, India-ink, chalk-pastels, graphite, watercolour and acrylics, collage and more. Materials will be provided.
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!
Students should bring:
- An apron
