ArtStarts on Saturdays presents: Painting Magnificent Coastal Forests with Sandi Henrich
11:00 am - 1:45 pm
808 Richards Street
Be inspired by the forests that surround us and Emily Carr’s Post-Impressionistic forest paintings, and have fun creating your own landscape painting in this workshop with artist Sandi Henrich.Learn how Emily Carr developed a unique artistic style to express her love of British Columbia’s trees and forests that in her words “teem with life, growth and expansion and are a refuge for myriads of living things.” Explore the concepts of foreground, middle-ground and background in your art while using oil pastels and paints to build up a layered composition that expresses how you feel about the forest landscape. Ideal for ages 6 to 12, but all are welcome!
Sessions start at 11am and 1pm. Free! No pre-registration necessary.
