What will we cover?

Drawing is a beautiful way of connecting to the world around us! But sometimes we can become too focused on technique and the idea of making a ‘good’ drawing. Need to loosen up your drawing practice and let go?

In this workshop we’ll explore a selection of freeing and meditative drawing exercises, such as blind contour and continuous line drawing, using a range of materials and unconventional tools, — ink markers, charcoal, liner pens, brightly coloured chalks, oil pastels, graphite, branches, bamboo, & handmade tools.

A beautiful still life of fresh flowers, plants and interesting objects will be arranged to for you draw and pull inspiration from. You will leave with a small sketchbook and book of exercises to take with you so you can continue your practice at home! Beginners and experienced drawing enthusiasts welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring an object that is meaningful to them to draw from during the workshop.

Who will be teaching?

Adria Mirabelli graduated from The Ontario College of Art and Design in 2015 with a major in Drawing and Painting and minor in Fibre. Having also studied at Parsons Paris in 2013, her work is influenced by craft and design processes. Her practice is driven by an experimental approach to mark-making whereby she integrates textile manipulation processes with drawing to create large scale works on silk, felt, vinyl and paper. Adria has created site specific installations at The Drake Hotel, The Artist Project, Xpace Cultural Centre and was a resident at The Roundtable Residency in 2015. She lives and works in Toronto. @adriamirabelli
