Is there an aspiring artist lurking inside you? Fort Gallery is ready help you to set it free, by once again offering its annual ‘Art Farm.’
This summer event, which will take place this year on Sunday, Aug. 9, serves as a fundraiser for the artist-run gallery, includes a selection of workshops led by professional artists, life-drawing sessions, and time to explore the rural setting for artistic inspiration.
The workshop will be held at the property of artist Susan Falk, in south Langley and will take place rain or shine.
Adults of any ability are welcome to come and learn from Fort Gallery artists keen to share their passion.
This year’s workshops include sketching buildings, brush and pencil, travel sketching, block printing, visual storytelling with maps, painting plein air and mixed media journaling.
The annual Art Farm will be a day to plant seeds of friendship, nourish creativity and harvest new skills. Spaces fill fast so the gallery encourages early registration.
Details regarding the workshops and registration are available on the gallery website at www.fortgallery.ca. Or drop by the gallery for a brochure. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
