Drawing Workshops Across the Board
Saturday, June 9, 2012 at various times and locations to be announced
Participating Parks Board Community Centres across Vancouver
Hey, Vancouver, let’s draw! Vancouver Parks Board Community Centres across Vancouver invite you to drop in and draw at a fun, easy and inspiring workshop led by an artist in your neighbourhood. Make a quick scribble and transform it into a creature, sketch a quick portrait of your cell phone, draw everything you ate yesterday… release your inner doodler!
These workshops are free and for all ages and levels of ability. Challenge your preconceptions about drawing and reconnect you with the creative pleasure of making your mark.

Presented by The Bright Red Crayon with artists Zee Kesler and Erin Leigh Pasternak
Join Zee and Erin for a Wish Flags workshop. Wish flags are based in the Tibetan Buddhist prayer flag tradition of hanging small fabric banners printed with messages of peace, compassion, strength and wisdom. Share your dreams for future generations! The flags are hung outside, and wishes are sent off as the flag blows in the wind. The simple techniques that will be used are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. All materials will be provided.
