Creative Creatures: Drawing with a Social Twist with Angela Gooliaff

Spring is a great time to draw new creatures and share them with friends over social media! Join illustrator Angela Gooliaff to discover how social media inspires some of her most inventive creatures by mixing word prompts found in Instagram drawing challenges.

This demonstration will expand your creative comfort zone enabling more wild and wacky creations! You will also learn where to find these daily drawing prompts to share your own zany sketches online with the larger Instagram artist community using proper hashtags and handles.

The focus will be demonstrating black and white line drawing with cross-hatching and then the blending of colour using Copic markers. I will also be demonstrating Instagram posting and how to engage effectively using the online community.

Space is limited and registration is required. Please visit Opus Granville Island or contact them at 604‑736‑7028 to register.

About Angela Gooliaff:
If Beatrix Potter and Edward Gorey were to have collaborated, the results might have looked similar to one of my illustrations. I love cute but slightly creepy creatures; and I also like science and art, pretty and ugly critters, and realism mixed with fantasy. Sensing a trend? It is true! Opposites – sprinkled with parody – make the most interesting subject matter to portray on paper. These drawings can be found daily on my Instagram account @antartist. You can also see my giant colouring book murals and my charming children’s book A Fun Food Friends Adventure online at: www.angelagooliaff.com
