Join Liza Isakov online for a four-week workshop filled with botanical inspired drawing and mark making. During the workshop you will be guided through a variety of drawing exercises and techniques, with a focus on sensitive mark making, and creating drawings from gathered foliage and plants.
Participants will work with art supplies they have on hand, whether it be colored pencils or other materials such as oil pastels, ink, acrylic and watercolour paint, or pens. Whatever art materials they have laying around at home—everything works!
As your guide and facilitator, Liza makes it her mission to clear away the obstacles that may be keeping you from diving freely into the creative world of still life.
The final session of the workshop will hinge on ensuring you are comfortable with these exercises. That way, you’ll have all the tools necessary to create a more refined yet expressive composition.
Liza Isakov is a Montreal-based artist who specializes in paper creations. Her expressive practice draws inspiration from everyday objects and observations—the process of gathering items, imagery, textiles, and loose sketches informs the delicate manner of her work. Isakov’s art has been exhibited around Winnipeg and Montreal, both in solo showcases and group vernissages with fellow students and artists. Isakov is currently in her fifth year at Concordia University, majoring in Studio Arts.
