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!
