Anyone Can Draw! The Big Picture Collective Art Project with Sandrine Pelissier & Sophie Babeanu

North Vancouver
Sat, August 12, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Sat, August 12, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus North Vancouver or contact them at 604‑904‑0447 to register.

The Big Picture is a collective art project where people in our local area and around the world are collaborating to create a big mosaic picture from thousands of smaller drawings.

    If you would like to participate in this exciting project and agree to any of the following:

  • The idea of drawing sends chills down your spine
  • You have an interesting story to share
  • Last time you drew something was in elementary school
  • Your dog ate all your drawings (we won’t ask…)
  • You want to try some simple exercises for yourself
  • You feel like attending a demo by two heavily French accented ladies

Then this is the demo for you!

Sandrine and Sophie will show you some simple drawing techniques: line contour drawing, line and cross hatching, cross contour drawing, scumbling technique, drawing with twigs. You will also have the chance to try for yourself some fun techniques like continuous drawing, blind continuous drawing, and drawing with your non dominant hand.

Attendees are asked to bring along a sketchbook and a pencil or pen to sketch along with Sandrine and Sophie.


Sandrine Pelissier is a North Vancouver-based visual artist and the author of Fearless Watercolor for Beginners. Her work has been published in many books and magazines.

She writes the popular blog:

Sophie Babeanu is a certified Expressive Arts Therapist. She graduated from Langara College in Vancouver and is also a member of the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA). She has hundreds of hours of practice with children, seniors and adults from all walks of life.


Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver

I will have a few paintings exhibited at the Centre Culturel Francophone de Vancouver in this group show for the Canada 150 celebrations.

From July 20 to 27, 2017, in the context of the Canada 150: Canada Goes Pacific event, Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver will host an exhibition devoted to the landscapes of the Pacific coast. Presented in the library at Le Centre, the exhibition Canada 150: Canada Goes Pacific has assembled the works of three francophone artists who bring us their vision of the natural and urban landscapes of the Pacific coast. This series of works shows us a seaside with a thousand and one facets that oscillate between the city and nature.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, July 20, 2017, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver, with the artists in attendance. Wine, fruit juice and cheese will be served.
