Join Bill Porteous as he takes you on a tour through The Drawing Toolbox!

The ability to draw is at the core for all artists looking to work from source material in nature whether it be objects, figures, landscapes or architecture. Before one arrives at a style or even a choice of materials and tools, learning to draw will provide a visual language and principles that will enable you to translate whatever subject you choose using line, shape and tone.

The Drawing Toolbox holds the tools, techniques and methods as well as a "guidebook" for how to integrate technique with intention.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Victoria or contact them at 250‑386‑8133 or toll free 1‑800‑524‑6555 to register.
