Join us at Trade School as we learn how to hone drawing skills by practicing portraits! Using pencil and paper, we'll practice line weight, mark-making, measuring distance and making multiple passes through sketches for two hours as we study the symmetry and variations in the human face. This class is for ALL skills levels, and beginners are more than welcome! if you have a clipboard or 8"X11" hard drawing surface, please feel free to bring it along! All other materials are supplied!

Bring one of the following:

New socks or unopened toothbrushes (to be donated to Halifax emergency shelters)

About the teacher, Amber Solberg

With an eye for the odd, Amber Solberg works as an illustrator and art instructor. Hailing from Alberta, she headed east to the ocean and now lives and works in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Since receiving a Visual Arts Diploma from Red Deer College (2009) and an Interdisciplinary BFA from NSCAD University (2013), she's been finding that science, storytelling, watercolours, and humour are her jam (although not what she'd want on toast).
