Inspired by The Drive, artist Eileen MacArthur will guide participants through techniques used by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven to depict landscapes across Canada. Exploring the interplay of art and nature within the Sculpture Park, the workshop will address selecting a compelling subject and working from direct observation, the use of colour to capture light and shadow, mark-making, and composition.
The workshop will begin at 10 am with a guided tour of The Drive, followed by a demonstration and drawing session “en plein air.” In the event of rain, the workshop will be held on Sunday, June 30 at 10 am. Adult participants of all expertise and skill levels are welcome. Registration is $30 and may be completed online or in-person at the gallery. Participants should bring a sketchbook. Drawing materials will be provided by the AGG; participants are encouraged to bring anything further that they wish to try, such as watercolour paints and pencils, and acrylic and oil paints.
