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.

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.
