with Simon Jensen
6-week class: Tuesdays,
Dates: April 14 - May 19th
1pm - 3:30pm
The ability to draw is not a “gift” but a learned skill, though like any skill it requires practise. This six week course provides you with a variety of approaches to drawing, as well as an introduction to colour theory and the use of the sketchbook as a tool in creativity. It is intended to give students of art confidence in their ability to see, record and design for themselves.
*Course details and materials list below. Students are responsible for providing their own materials.
A local artist and former school teacher, Simon Jensen has instructed young artists for over 30 years on the use and importance of the sketchbook, as the artist's main tool. His own work is included in private and corporate collections, the largest which is in the Mississauga Public Library's Permanent Collection. You can see his work here.
