Kids can ‘Draw With A Splash’ at the Art Gallery

Kids who want to dip their toes into the world of art will love the upcoming class

Kids who want to dip their toes into the world of art will love the upcoming ‘Draw With A Splash’ class at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

The class, for children aged seven to 12, takes place over two sessions, Tuesdays, April 16 and April 23 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Led by artist and instructor Perry Johnston, participants will start off with simple line drawings, which they’ll later transform into paintings with brushes and water. The experience will allow kids to learn about the use of perspective, values, colour and the basics of design – the building blocks for making great art.

Johnston has been drawing and painting most of her life and her watercolours have been exhibited in numerous shows in the Campbell River area. Her current exhibition, at the DIG Gallery on Quadra Island, has been held over until the end of April. Having received professional art instruction from some great instructors, she has recently started teaching art workshops and hopes to share some of this experience with others. The cost for ‘Draw With A Splash’ with Perry Johnston is $27 for members of the Campbell River Art Gallery and $37 for non-members. All supplies are included. Winter/Spring Children’s Classes are sponsored by the Friends of CR Art Gallery.

Stop by the Campbell River Art Gallery Tuesday to Saturday from 12-5 p.m., call 250-287-2261, e-mail or check out to find out more.
