Drawing Workshop with Lisa Lake

Saturday, June 27, 2015
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Cost: $20.00

Appropriate for all skill levels.

Register at the Ticket Centre or call (604) 476-2787.

This drawing workshop will use the captivating imagery of Janet Dwyer to develop expressive mark making and gesture line. Artist Lisa Lake will lead participants through a series of exercises around the gallery to experience Dwyer's large scale, high resolution prints while also exploring real objects. Varieties of drawing media will be used across generous sheets of paper, resulting in a refreshing experience that reflects the sensitivity and joy inherent in Dwyer's work.
