Drawing on the Terrace
Join us every last Thursday of the month in the Studio to learn observational sketching techniques at Ottawa Art Gallery.
In this session we will sketch from the South Terrace and participants will choose a theme to draw. It could be the city from above, or the building from below, or the light and shade under the canopy of the terrace, or maybe participants will do short poses for each other to draw from. An open-ended drawing session with many possibilities. We will use Conte, kneadable erasers and paper.
The workshop will be led by OAG Educator Maria Gomez-Umaña, a mixed media artist living in Ottawa whose artwork draws from experiences of becoming and belonging in a globalised world.
Registration is required for this event, see the Eventbrite link below. Art materials will be provided.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
