3-Day Workshop in Toronto in July with Birgit Koopsen

Birgit Koopsen and I are coming to Toronto to teach a 3-Day workshop designed to Inspire YOU!

Take a Stroll Around the Block with Birgit and Nat and discover that inspiration is all around you! In this 3 day workshop, we’ll embark upon a creative scavenger hunt to seek out inspiring clues in our environment. You’ll learn how to turn these inspiring clues into artwork by using inspiration maps, some of Birgit and Nat’s favorite techniques and tools, and your own personal style.

Based on what you have seen on your stroll and how you apply these tips and tricks, you’ll come away with very unique and personal art journal pages that work. In the end, you’ll have learned about pattern design, composition, and other Elements and Principles of art and a new technique for gathering inspiration for your art-making.

After these three days you’ll know how to find and look for inspiration in architecture, street art, nature and museums and how to translate all this into meaningful and creative artwork.

Birgit and I had such an awesome time last year teaching together- you can see some pictures of the 3Day Workshop back then here.

Friday, July 20th – Sunday, July 22nd

This time around we’re bringing the fun to Toronto and our workshop is being held in a beautiful event facility called The Old Mill, a full-service destination (there are gorgeous grounds, a hotel, a bar with live music events, and even a spa on site).

Class size is limited to 35 so reserve your spot ASAP. You can do so by contacting Barb at classbarb2100@gmail.com and learn more about the Stroll Around the Block workshop here.

Each full day of creative fun will run from 9am – 4pm. Included is: continental style breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks. Toronto is an awesome city to visit with loads of great restaurants, museums, and nightlife. This event is also great if you are nearby in the US as the exchange rate from US to Canadian dollars is very favorable right now. Make it a long weekend and treat yourself :)

We hope you will join us for this artistic escape, full of learning, inspiration, creativity, old friends and new, and lots and lots of FUN!
