Organized by Sandrine Pelissier and Sophie Babeanu

We are passionate about making art accessible. We believe that if you can write, you can draw.
Every year we organize a Culture Days event that will reveal the artist in you in a fun and relaxed environment.

Everybody is an artist!

We truly believe that art is for everyone and we designed a fun activity that will have you make a unique picture, easily and in no time. All you have to do is relax and let your imagination do all the work.

This activity is suitable for kids all ages as well as for adults, even the adults who could not draw to save their life.

If you like the picture you made, Sophie and Sandrine will help you upload it to the Big Picture Art Project, and online collective art project where artists from everywhere in the world are sharing drawings and stories.

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 drawings. You want to participate in the project and:

– The idea of drawing sends chills down your spine?
– You have an interesting story to share?
– You could not use a computer if your life depended on it?
– What on earth is a scanner?
– Last time you drew something was in elementary school
– Your dog ate your drawing
– You feel like having a conversation with two heavily french accented ladies.

Come and see us, we can help !

 

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.

Supplies will be provided.
