We just held our end of the year show at Simply drawing. It is held in my studio every year in June.
A big thank you to all the visitors and the talented artists who participated.
Our group is now taking a break until September, when our classes will resume every Thursday from 6.30 to 9.30 pm.
The show runs from July 9th – 29th at the Federation of Canadian Artists
241 Cartwright Street
Vancouver, BC, V6H 4B7
Our annual life drawing show will take place on June 22, 6 to 9 pm in my studio.
It was great to meet with visitors last weekend for the North Shore Art Crawl and let them see my working space, new art works and ask questions about my process.
I had a little hand-son activity set up for the crawl where you could make a 8 pages booklet from one sheet of paper.
Finally this week I had the pleasure of giving a studio tour to a group registered to the: Exploring the North Vancouver Art Scene tour from the West Vancouver community arts council. They also visited : Lorn Curry, Susanna Blunt and Marcus Bowcott

For Culture Days Sophie Babeanu (art therapist in North Vancouver) and I have arranged a few drawing stations in the studio with simple instructions.
At each station, you could try a different drawing technique.
Like drawing with your non- dominant hand
Or finding a drawing from random scribbles on paper
Or drawing a self portrait with a mirror monoprint easy technique.
Once the drawings were made, participants had the opportunity to have their drawings scanned and to upload them to the Big Picture Art Project
We had some awesome participations to the big picture from our Culture Days visitors. Here are a few:
See you next year !
