August monthly news letter

Top Border

Hello everyone,

July was so much fun. Never fails, with warm weather comes more activities. I think Canadians really try to make the best of what little summer we have hahaha.

This month’s life drawing will be on Thursday August 24th. I had such a great time last Life Drawing drop in. I used watercolours instead of charcoal and it was a really great experience. I did a live taping of it. This time I will bring something to put my phone on so I don’t have to hold it while painting. So if you can’t make it, I will do my live taping on Instagram and Facebook. There is more than one pose so I can switch between both platforms.

Work In Progress

If you want to join, it is at Queen Street West and McCaul Street. You can get off at Osgoode subway station and walk there within 5 minutes. The entrance is from the lane way (Renfrew PL) behind the store fronts, close to McCaul end. There is a sign board placed on the sidewalk at the door. It is $15 to draw for as long as you want (7-10). They usually get pretty occupied so I suggest getting there at 7. If you come later you’ll probably be sitting in the back.

It is organized by “Thursday Night Drawing at Project Art “on Facebook.  You can visit them to get more information.

Life Drawing

This month I will be attending the Kensington Arts Market on Sunday, August 27th. It is from 12-7pm. I had a fun time in July so I am looking forward to doing it a second time. I will be selling originals, prints and postcards. Price ranges will be high to low so affordable for everyone. 😉

I was contacted by Luke from www.StopGap.ca to take part in their fundraiser. I am really looking forward to this. Their charity is about making cities accessible for everyone and taking down barriers. My part in this is making artwork to donate to their cause that they can auction off and use the funds towards making Toronto and other cities more accessible for everyone. I am very excited to take part in this and am really looking forward to making them a painting. This event will take place on November  2nd.

Stop Gap Foundation

Also I will be gone from August 9th to the 16th. I am going on vacation to British Columbia so if anyone needs to contact me I will be M.I.A for about a week. I am hopefully going to be able to make 1 or 2 urban sketches while I am away.

Last but not least, send me a picture of something you are working on. I would love to see your works in progress or sketches or anything you want to show me. Just send it to my email, Instagram or on Facebook.

Have a great August everyone!
