The Vancouver Draw Down 2013 at Britannia will include: 

  • "Uncontrolled Abstract"
    with Asa Mori. Free workshop where participants will draw an object with a pen or brush attached with string and your fingers are not in direct contact with the drawing medium. 
  • "Mail Art Postcards "
    Join Artist/Facilitator Laura Bucci and learn about mail art, a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 60s and involves sending visual art through the postal system. This workshop will help you get started to create a postcard for a mail art exhibition in November at Britannia Art Gallery as well as creating postcards for other projects or for friends. The theme for the exhibit is '"this is where i go." The artist will supply all materials to make a collage postcard using a variety of paper, rubber stamping, postal stickers, and washi tape (decorative tape). A typewriter will also be available. Bring a glue stick, scissors, and personal imagery and materials you'd like to play with.
