Right Brain Drawing

with Hilda Van Netten

Saturday, September 26, 2020

10am - 3:30pm


Learn to see so that you will be able to draw anything. You will learn by doing. There will be some interactive activities like making “blind portrait sketches” of each other. Mostly, you will progress at your own speed through the activities. It’s going to be fun!

If you’ve taken a drawing workshop in the past from Hilda, she will accommodate you and you can begin a drawing — either from your own black and white photographs (bring 5 or 6) or ones she will provide. No need to go back to basics for you!

Hilda is a talented watercolour and pastel artist who truly enjoys helping students to discover their artistic talents. You can see her work here.

Payment can be made by e-transfer (thepaintedtree@hotmail.com), phone with credit card, or in store by cash, credit or debit.

“What a wonderful one-day class! I used to sketch, years ago, but was stuck and couldn’t get started again. Hilda’s class enabled me to see that I can draw and that I enjoy it. I don’t know how she imparted so much information without overloading us. I am looking forward to taking another class at The Painted Tree. Many thanks!”  — Elizabeth

“A great workshop made learning new skills enjoyable and non threatening.”  — A.B.
