Tuesday Workshop with Rachel Harbour

Drawing is a technical skill that, with practice, anyone can master. Basic skills in drawing can benefit any artist. In this workshop, we will review an introduction to sketching and shading, then, through the use of some playful exercises, we will develop our drawings into compositions to which we will add some colour with paint, watercolour pencil or chalk. Workshop fee of $20 is due at time of registration. Space is limited so register early. For further information, please call 613-968-6731 x2040 or e-mail gallery@bellevillelibrary.ca
