ALL ISLANDS’ ART SHOW
OUR COMMUNITY ART SHOW IS BACK! Any inspired artists of Haida Gwaii are welcome to submit their art for this show.
Art Drop Off Dates – April 14th & 15th, 2023 from 10:00am to 4:00pm @ Haida Gwaii Museum
Please drop off your artwork during the designated times. Similar to last year, we will be producing a virtual video tour of the art show. You are invited to contribute to this year’s virtual art tour by partaking in an audio or video recording where you can share the inspiration behind your art piece. Please consider participating, as it makes the virtual art tour much more interesting for folks who could not attend the art exhibition in person.

Join Yvonne for an introduction to painting botanicals from the majestic forests and shores in Haida Gwaii. Combining observation and imagination, we will create a series of gestural botanicals using watercolour. In the morning we will explore the shoreline and collect plant specimens to use as reference. We will warm up with various drawing exercises to become familiar with our subject and move into painting with loose watery areas of colour, adding line and detail to finalize our botanical paintings. From wet into wet impressions to realistic details, have fun learning a few drawing and painting tricks and experimenting with watercolour paints to create stunning results.
Feel free to bring photos and plants from your surroundings as reference. Plants and photos will also be provided.
All levels welcome!
