Oxygen Art Centre transforms the gallery into a community open studio over three Sundays this Fall. This all-ages three-part series of collaborative drawing workshops is in connection with the world-wide event known as “The Big Draw.”
Facilitated by Oxygen Art Centre member and artist Anita Levesque, “The Big Draw” theme for 2019 is #DrawnToLife and explores the healing and unifying impact of mark making and drawing.
These family friendly drop-in art making sessions run from 11:00am to 4:00pm over three Sundays through the Fall. Each session will focus on a different theme. Events are free or by donation. Open to everyone, whatever age or experience.
The second session will be held on Sunday, October 20, 2019 from 11:00am-4:00pm. The theme for this session is “Self portraits.” Self-portraits have a long tradition in art history and visual culture. The second session in Oxygen Art Centre’s “The Big Draw” event series celebrates the unique and beautiful qualities of the human portrait and processes of documenting the self. Join us in our drawing lab to participate in observational drawings utilizing mirrors and microscopes, bling contour drawing, full body tracings, silhouettes, musical chairs, exquisite corpse, and the great fun of drawing while in motion.
Oxygen Art Centre is committed to ensuring all exhibitions, programs, and events are accessible to visitors. Our facilities are wheelchair accessible and equipped with one accessible washroom. Please contact Oxygen if you have any questions or concerns about this event.
“The Big Draw” is generously supported by Osprey Community Foundation, BC Lions Club, and Nelson and District Credit Union.
