What you'll do

I will learn what type of Calgary environment my guest in interested in exploring and choose a unique part of the city that will give my guest an artistic insight. Once a location is chosen, I will arrange a meeting spot or pick up my guest and drive them to the location. Once on location, I will give my guest a lesson on drawing specific to the type of environment we will be in. Once the lesson and demonstration is complete, I will set the guest up with the equipment and materials to complete his/her drawing/collage. The guest can choose if they would like to create a work of art on their own or have me work on it with them. If they choose to work on their own piece, I will work on one along side them so I can give direction along the way.

William

I'm a local Artist and Arts Instructor who was born and raised in Calgary. I have both a Bachelor's & Master's degree in Fine Arts. I have been teaching at the Alberta University of the Arts for 15 years and also teach for smaller arts organizations including the Calgary board of Education. As an artist, I paint murals, draw, and paint in oil. Last year I was the head artist for the longest mural in Canada. For the past 4 years I have been running art retreats to Mexico. In Mexico I teach participants how to experience time and place through art making. I started running an Urban Sketching program in Calgary last year. In 2018 I was awarded the National Arts Advocacy Award from CARFAC for the work I do with non profits and community based organizations.

Where you'll be

I will choose a location to draw based in the guests interests. Coming from a third generation Calgary family, I have been raised with a knowledge of all my city's gems. If a guest in interested in architecture, I will bring them to the best example of local architecture. If they are interested in an urban space, I will bring them to the coolest ally in the city. If they are interested in horticulture, I will bring them to the most special garden
