Space is limited and registration is required.

The Big Picture is a collective art project where people in our local area and around the world are collaborating to create a big mosaic picture from thousands of smaller drawings.
If you would like to participate in this exciting project and agree to any of the following:
- The idea of drawing sends chills down your spine
- You have an interesting story to share
- Last time you drew something was in elementary school
- Your dog ate all your drawings (we won’t ask…)
- You want to try some simple exercises for yourself
- You feel like attending a demo by two heavily French accented ladies
Then this is the demo for you!
Sandrine and Sophie will show you some simple drawing techniques: line contour drawing, line and cross hatching, cross contour drawing, scumbling technique, drawing with twigs. You will also have the chance to try for yourself some fun techniques like continuous drawing, blind continuous drawing, and drawing with your non dominant hand.
Attendees are asked to bring along a sketchbook and a pencil or pen to sketch along with Sandrine and Sophie.
