Drawing in the Field with Alexandra Thomson
From sketching on location at Denman Island to setting up her pencils and papers in downtown Steveston and Iona Beach, artist-educator Alexandra Thomson shows different sketching techniques and ways to depict the ever-evolving landscape around us. Capture on paper the change of seasons with six hour-long classes including techniques such as contour line drawing, sighting and perspective, shading, and more! Learn how to render clouds, flowers, fenceposts, moving water, fields and meadows, and the bustling cityscape. "Drawing in the Field" is a thoughtful way to begin your sketching journey or revisit the techniques you may already know.

Cost: $35 with optional tool kit for $34.50 and extra clay for $29
Filming from her studio here in Surrey, use your imagination and create handbuilt ceramics with artist-educator Amelia Butcher as she takes you on a journey in this clay course. Create small pinch pots and large coil vessels, experiment with sgraffito and underglaze designs, and even build your own piece of cake with clay slabs. On your own or with family and friends, reimagine the sculptural possibilities of clay. Includes materials, video lessons, firing, and glazing.
