Meditative Drawing with Taj!

The Fraser River influences our daily experience of living in the Lower Mainland in ways we often don’t recognize. Tap into your relationship with the river with this Meditative Drawing Workshop led by Taj! Their work as a comic artist, storyteller, and printmaker draws on accessible and collaborative processes to create bold, expressive work that connects self to space.  

Using meditative drawing and writing exercises, this workshop guides you through observing and depicting the natural environment to cultivate curiosity and visualizing the connections between you and the landscape. You will have the unique opportunity to use your surroundings and natural specimens as inspiration and drawing references. No experience necessary and all materials are provided!
