Beginning April 7 at 6 pm, and running weekly to May 5, Pop-Up Studio offers an inspiring look at an artwork from the AGO Collection, before leaping into a 30-minute drawing exercise inspired by the techniques found in the work. Each week focuses on a new work and technique or style, from collage to watercolour to drawing, with a thematic focus on a diverse array of portraits inspired by the AGO’s Portraits of Resilience project. Pop-in online after your Wednesday workday for this free session, bring along your favourite drink, pencils and paper, and connect with others for a relaxing session.
Hard edges and bold lines define Ernst Ludwig Kirchner’s style. We will look to his work for inspiration while drawing with black magic markers on smooth paper.
Materials list: drawing paper or sketchbook (smooth but with some texture if possible, any size), black markers, any size, multiple sizes preferable.
