Irene McCuaig • In Search of the Inner Dragon – Virtual Art Workshop
April 6 and 20

Register today at

Come and enjoy two nights of inspiration guided by Irene McCuaig of Inglenook Studio.

Irene owns Inglenook Art Studio at 1051 Railway Street in Kenora where she offers classes, leads workshops and spends hours every day developing her art. Last year, Irene walked us through Notan, a Japanese concept that emphasizes the balance between dark and light forms in a painting. This year, Irene invites us to join her on her journey of the 100 dragons.

Irene will guide participants through the process of creating a textured, multimedia piece. Participants will be encouraged to be introspective, choosing colors, shapes and textures that match their inner dragons, whether they are warriors, guardians or pacifists. This is a two-session workshop. In the first, we will prepare the textured background. In the second, we will add supports (wash, ink, colored pencils etc.). Make sure to register for both sessions.

For this workshop, participants will need:

• Hair dryer
• Paper napkins
• Water reservoir
• Tablecloth
• Paints (any type you want in any color you like)
• Brushes, a variety
• Bottle of Spritzer
• Pencils
• Permanent black marker (I prefer the fine point)
• Your substrate (s) from the previous session

Not sure if you make a dragon, but are still interested in attending? Come watch the fun and join the discussion via Zoom.

Arts @ Home is offered with the support of:
Kenora and Lake of the Woods Regional Community Foundation and Ontario Arts Council
