Throughout our childhood, we often develop a system of symbols that we use when drawing – almonds for eyes; triangle for the nose; oval for the face; circle on top of a vertical rectangle for a tree – and without further training, we continue to use these same symbols as adults. In these workshops, we will lead you through some exercises to help you leave your symbols behind and learn how to draw what you see.

This program has limited space. Early registration is encouraged.


Register online or by phone at 250-377-2400.

Each week, KAG Art Instructor Anyssa Gill and Teen Intern Kiranna Wouters will lead a workshop exploring a selected topic, ranging from pencil shading techniques to gouache painting methods. In addition to learning new art-making techniques, we will also explore the work of contemporary and historical female artists to inspire our own artwork. No registration required.
