Drawing & Painting In Public Places

with Geneviève Sideleau

This drawing and watercolor class will bring the students throughout the city to draw or paint in outdoor public places. We will meet each week in a different location in the West-Island and observe people and places we often pass by without really noticing. From private gardens to the forest, local cafes to beautiful churches, this class is ideal for those interested in exploring the city as well as focusing on enhancing current skills. The teacher encourages discussions as well as interest in new techniques and/or mediums. Students should have learnt drawing and/or watercolor skills and be able to work on their own as well as embrace critique.

*In accordance with the weather forecast, rainy days will be postponed until the following week
