Inspired By: Landscapes in the Sobey Collection – a Gouache Painting Workshop
November 8

This workshop begins in the art gallery with a curatorial tour of "Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art". A recurring theme in the exhibition is the North Atlantic, its role in history and its impact on artists’ imaginations. The tour will be given by our Curator of Contemporary Art, Mireille Eagan. Following the tour, we will move to the art gallery classroom for a landscape painting workshop with art educator, Anne Pickard-Vaandering. Using artist quality materials, we’ll explore a variety of gouache painting techniques including colour mixing, layering and blending. Participants will leave with a completed landscape painting.
