Studio 65+: Drawing and Sketching for Beginners

IMPORTANT COVID POLICY UPDATE

As of Monday, February 28/22, visitors to SJAC will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination. 

Please note that out of an abundance of caution, SJAC will continue to keep a mandatory mask policy in place for all programs (workshops, galleries, performing arts events, rental events) after the Public Health restrictions are lifted on March 14/22. We will continue to monitor and reassess in the coming weeks.

Workshop Description

Do you want to learn to draw but don’t know where to start? Join Kelly Cunningham as she guides you through the time-honoured, proven principles of good drawing and sketching. You will learn how to use different pencils for line quality, shading methods, and mark making techniques, while building knowledge of good composition, quality of light in your drawing and building form. This fun and informative workshop will erase any fears of the blank white page as you put pencil to paper in a welcoming environment. Supplies are included in the workshop fee.
