The Shy People Drawing Club

The Shy People Drawing Club

Part class, part social club!  This group is meant for adults with beginner-to-intermediate drawing skills who want to practice in a fun and supportive setting.  Artist Jacquie Rolston will provide the theme for a drawing exploration, demo a technique or material to start us off, and provide light instruction and feedback throughout the session (but she’s also looking forward to doing some drawing herself!)

Drawing sessions will be offered the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month.  7-9pm.

The cost is $15 fee a session, which includes instruction, materials, and tea and snacks.  (usually, home-baked treats…)   Feel free to drop in once in a while or become a regular attendee, just email to reserve a spot.  Payment due at beginning of session, by cash or etransfer.

The club meets at Jacquie’s cheerfully shabby art studio near Clark and 2nd.  Unfortunately it is up a flight of stairs and is not wheelchair accessible.  Maximum 8 participants.

The story behind SPDC: Jacquie also teaches a beginners’ drawing class on Sundays.  Her current group of students asked her to create a drawing night so they could keep up their drawing practice, and she couldn’t say no!  The Shy People Drawing Club is a place where we can help each other solve technical problems as well as get creative with new approaches.  We will learn from each other and cheer each other on.  (If you are interested in the beginner drawing class, next session starts March 22.)

THEME:  Birds of a Feather

Ducks, jays, owls, parrots, swallows, penguins… The theme for this evening is the bird kingdom.  Copy from photographs or make up your own fantastic birds.  Explore the beautiful textures and markings of feathers in a range of materials from watercolour to pastels.


Special Instructions

Dress in layers as the studio can be cold, and dress to get messy.  You're welcome to bring your own supplies if clearly labelled.
