Just Horses, at the CNE Horse Palace is Back!

Starting

January 15, 2019

we are invited for 10 weeks of drawing horses & riders from life courtesy of Toronto Police Service's Mounted Unit.

Warning; the first week can be overwhelming, even for the experienced. The horses + riders do not do 20 minute sustained poses.

But, poses repeat and repeat as Toronto's Mounted Unit goes through its training paces while moving in all directions

Over repeated weeks with the same group of models you will learn to Look, See and Draw, horses from life.

Just Horses is limited to 8 participants.

NO cameras!

 Thank you Toronto Police Services Mounted Unit.

Coloured pencils have been around for a lifetime. The possibilities are endless with this simple portable medium. No water. No muck. No huge bag of stuff to lug around. Just Paper, or another dry surface and the pencils. They never wear out. Never dry out. Never get stale. Some of us have coloured pencils from our childhood carefully saved in their special pencil case, complete with memories of creating an imaginary world of...? Newly rediscovered colouring books have given permission to indulge in the joy of working with our pencil case again. BUT, when the colouring book is done, or we seek greater challenges, what to do?

 

Participants feedback " 'I really enjoyed the class. Now I want to draw and colour too.' 'Not enough hours in the day.' ' Thank you Nola, ... the fantastic class yesterday !' 'You have different techniques ... that has encouraged me to keep drawing.
Please keep up the great work and encouragement, ...everyone can draw!' 'I wondered why you were giving us these little scraps of paper. Now I know why. I learned, a lot. Thank You'"

Summer Wanderings

Summer means getting out of the studio, under a tree anywhere with a sketch book and mark makers.

Just doodling, in the city, in the country.
