Community Art Walk!
I have been working very hard over the past month creating charcoal drawings for my participation in the local Art Walk. I am very excited to get these up and displayed for the community to see! The webpage for the Fort St. John Community Arts Council is here and I am sure that they will have more information about the Art Walk in the near future. The sizes range from 8 X 10 (the man and the water landscape) to 11 X 14 (The dog, owl and Venice landscape)
Here is a little snapshot of what I have created. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you will have seen progress pictures of each of these pieces of Art. If you wish to follow me on Facebook or Instragram the links to my pages are across the top of the website.
I am also donating one commissioned charcoal drawing to the Bright Lights Celebration (the link is here) I will have one piece of artwork displayed at the gala and people will be able to bid on the creation of a custom piece of artwork that I will create from the picture of their choosing.
Also, as if I wasn’t taking on enough I have decided to teach at the Cultural Centre this summer. It will be a beginner Drawing class for individuals that are absolute beginners and I will teach them as much as I can about using graphite to create their own stunning drawings. There should be a link to the class on the Cultural Centre website soon and I will add a link as soon as it is available!
Finally my summer is going to be full of learning how to create my own teaching video’s and creating my lessons for the new, online group that I have joined called “Seven Fall’s Artist Group” We are going to be running a class on “Gratitude” in the Fall and there are going to be 15 teachers participating and teaching a weeks lesson about gratitude and creating art!
It is a really exhilarating/exhausting/brillant time right now and I am so glad to have all these opportunities manifest themselves in my life. All the planning, work and goals that I started in January are starting to show up and it is so exciting!
