Summer Workshops

"I CAN Draw" Workshops ~ July 17-21 from 1 - 4 pm

Young artists may join us for an afternoon of drawing and creative fun.  As with all of our camps and classes, students will be introduced to elements such as line, shape, form while exploring a variety of media such as pastel, marker, crayon, watercolour, charcoal, etc.  Workshops are designed to inspire individual creativity and build the student's confidence and skill level to encourage on-going practice and play outside the studio.  

Special Promotion: The students receive a free sketchbook plus fine art materials to create more art at home.


Each workshop will have a different theme and focus on a vairety of drawing & art techniques.  

Canadian Currency Creation ~ Using familiar imagery, students will create a Canadian coin with the teacher's guidance and then another independently.

  • New Perspectives on Portraits ~ Students learn from the Masters about abstract art as they create a cubist portrait by observing the teacher.  They also create their own abstract self portrait.
  • Art Inspiration from Africa ~ Inspired by traditional art of other cultures, students draw textile designs, jewelry and masks.
  • Shed Some Light & Create a Shadow ~ Students learn about tonal values and how to create tone or volume in the drawings to acheive a 3-D look using both color media and charcoal or pencil.
  • Draw What You See from Life ~ Students learn how to look closely at object and see the arrangement of lines and shapes to draw the outlines. Then they will fill in the lights and shadows with mixed media or a range of charcoal.
