Drawing the Prize is an art workshop for adults that explores the portraiture of the Kingston Prize 2023. Participants experience the exhibition of Canadian portraiture at the Firehall Theatre through a guided tour of the portraits and a discussion of content and the artists who created them. A number of the works will be discussed in depth. Nancy will point out aspects of the portrait: the subject, storytelling, composition, use of art techniques and colour, etc. A dialogue is opened up for each focus work, allowing participants to ask questions and offer their point of view.

​The workshop includes an opportunity for art learning and art making both in the gallery and in the space just outside the gallery. Warm up drawings of the skull follows a coffee break, after which, participants will be invited into the gallery space with a drawing board, pencils and a chair. Sketches of the portraits are created; Nancy offers drawing tips.

The workshop ends with a fun scavenger hunt and voting for the People’s Choice Award!
