Fine Art Series: Drawing Skills for Portraits

ONLINE - In upcoming sessions of the Fine Art Series, students will focus on developing their hand-eye skills and learn how to draw a portrait (in February) with eventual goals of turning our portrait drawings into paintings (March 29th).  Your instructor will be local artist Jason Alexander. 

On Feb. 22nd, Jason will focus on step-by-step techniques on how to draw a portrait by demonstrating drawing and sketching skills on 18” x 24” pad paper. 

We will discuss and give examples of capturing the essence of drawing human faces such as incorporating facial angle, gender differences, age etc. while addressing correct positioning and proportions of facial features. 

Students will practice their drawing skills through two sample images to be emailed closer to the program date (or an image of your own, if preferred).  We will build student confidence for our next class in March when we turn the portrait drawings into a painting with a blue undertone.

Intermediate skill level.  Anyone may feel welcomed to join to either actively participate or just watch and enjoy the creative journey.

Free workshop.

Drawing materials to gather for the February workshop:

Pad of drawing paper or sheets of paper any size 55-100 lb (recommended size: 9” X 12” or 11” X 14” or 18” X 24”)

2B or 4B pencil – (one)

Compressed dark charcoal 2B or soft to mid soft (optional)

A good white eraser

Any blue or black ballpoint pen

Fine marker (nib size ½ or 1 MM)

Or any other drawing tool you would like to try eg. woodless pencil; colour pencil; pastels; charcoal pencils, crayons

Reference photo(s): will be emailed closer to the program date.

To save your spot and receive the Zoom link for February, click herehttps://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYscu-pqTwrHdGo_K-K6gXaZeGjGk0R3TyS

Ending the Financial Feud - Love & Money

ONLINE – Love and relationships can bring tremendous joy in our lives. However, combining love and money adds a layer of complication that most do not expect when we fall in love. In fact, the frequency of money-related fights is one of the biggest predictors of divorce. Does it seem like you and your spouse/partner are constantly fighting about money? Do you find it hard to even get onto the same page with your finances without it turning into a fight? The good news is there’s hope! Your spouse/partner isn’t trying to make your life difficult financially; they’re just different than you.

In the Ending the Financial Feud webinar, you and your person will learn how to:

• Identify your money histories, more specifically how money was handled in each of your households;

• Identify yours, theirs and each other’s relationship to money;

• Set goals as a couple and understand why and how the goals meet each partner’s values and needs;

• Decide who has the desire, skill and ability to create and implement a household money management plan (e.g. budgeting, savings, planning for the future, etc.); and

• Implement various financial systems to make life easier.

We take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will take away ideas, resources, and the full curriculum, upon request.

Free.  Click here to register: https://webinar.ringcentral.com/webinar/register/WN_AIGtSZ7aR1mxPpXsfpnmDA

About the webinar platform "RingCentral" - when using it for the first time it may ask you to download the app (which only takes a moment).  In the event one doesn't want to download the app, there will be a link in blue to allow you to "join from your browser".  When you join there will be a screen to edit the name that will appear to everyone in the webinar. You may wish to use a first name only or your initials. Video is not required (allowing you to stay anonymous).  Only the presenter will be live on video.  Audio is optional.  You are encouraged however to ask questions but this can be done by typing in the meeting "chat".

The Credit Counselling Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals and families find solutions to their debt and money questions.
