Signs of Spring - Drawing with Pat Walsh

The students of the Drawing class have done a unique & inspirational project on their individual perspectives of this pandemic. We invite you to visit their drawings on our website at: https://contactivitycentre.org/gallery.php

The Drawing Basics course has presently reached maximum capacity, but we are compiling a waiting list should there be enough people to start another class with the date and time yet to be determined. Minimum requirement is 6 people.  If you would like to be placed on the waiting list please email Janice at janice.parnell@contactivitycentre.org 

Springtime is an ideal time to concentrate on subjects in nature. More possibilities open up during this season : we can go outdoors to sketch, bring small pieces of the natural world back to our homes, or look out of the window and draw the buds opening in the trees. We will tackle subjects like perspective, how to draw buildings, drawing the landscape, and even observing local wildlife! We will take the principles and techniques we learn during class time and put them into practice in between classes in our own neighbourhoods and backyards. We will also study nature close up, sketching subjects like pussy willows, spring flowers and branches, sharpening both our drawing and our observation skills.
