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.
Our final meeting in this group of Pop-Up spring sessions features pastel drawing exercises inspired by the artwork of Richard Diebenkorn.
Materials list: Pastels, chalk or oil, as well as a heavy, toothed drawing paper (bumpy to the touch).
