ARTS COUNCIL AGM
Join us at the Rollin Art Centre this Thursday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m., for the Community Arts Council’s annual general meeting.
Port Alberni artist Cynthia Bonesky will be holding two three-day arts workshops at North Island College in March.
A three-day beginner watercolour workshop will explore the properties of watercolour paint: how to mix colours, how to achieve various kinds of washes and special effects that can be done. The workshop runs from March 6-8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at NIC.
In a three-day beginner drawing workshop, you will explore different ways of drawing to train the eye. Exercises will include contour drawing, quick sketching and learning to measure proportions in different ways. The workshop runs from March 20-22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at NIC.
The cost for each is $150 plus supplies. Register for one or both workshops at the Rollin Art Centre: 250-724-3412.
There is a life drawing opportunity at the Rollin Art Centre with weekly non-instructional and live models. The cost is $60 per month. Meetings will take place in the evenings, beginning early March, with dates and times to be determined by participants. Please call Rollin Art Centre: 250-724-3412.
