All you need is a sketchbook, oil pastels, fine-tipped markers and GEM’s friendly guidance!
LOCATION: Varies each week, sometimes inside, sometimes outside depending on Manitoba weather & bugs! Check Facebook Events for updates, or EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
FOCUS & CHALLENGES: to get your creativity turned on to seeing the world through the eyes of an artist! Most often, it is about learning a new skill, challenged by an activity that takes us away from realism and into the world colour, shape, texture, line, pattern and the emotion it evokes within us.
UPCOMING DATES & LOCATIONS: If possible send GEM an email to know that you would like to participate, so she knows to wait for you.
Next LOCATIONS: TBA
