Adventures with a Travel Sketchbook with Keith Valentine
Sun, April 23, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Sun, April 23, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Join Keith Valentine as he shares his 35 years of experience in travel sketching.
Learn about the different techniques Keith uses for sketching on the run, while going over his previous sketchbooks and watercolour sketches that were created in remote locations. Keith will also have his most recent book for sale, “Finding a Place to Sit”.
There will be a quick sketching exercise during the demonstration, so bring a small sketchbook, and a pen or pencil.
Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Granville Island or contact them at 604‑736‑7028 to register.
Keith may not be a trained artist, but he was a soil scientist who travelled widely within Canada and around the world and carried a sketchbook instead of a camera. In retirement he has learned to bind and restore books, and even makes his own sketchbooks.
