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 third and final session will be held on Sunday, November 17, 2019 from 11:00am-4:00pm. The theme for this session is “Diversity is strength.” Explore mark making through experimental drawing tools and drawing machines, drawing with sound, building a collaborative community large scale temporary mural directly on the Oxygen Art Centre walls. In addition to visual art marking we will build a community feedback loop to be shared on Kootenay Co-Op Radio, “Poetry for Keeps.” It will be reverberated throughout the community, a collaboration you will not want to miss.

 

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.
