Join us for a class on learning to sketch and draw climbing gear! All levels of experience are invited to sketch and draw in this class at Banff Public Library. As part of Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, join esteemed Teaching Artist in Residence Janice Tanton and special guest Chic Scott in this free class that will explore different drawing and mark-making techniques. Using various materials and supplies, participants will explore basic drawing exercises in this facilitated class, with a focus on drawing climbing gear. If you love to climb and have always wanted to learn to draw, this class is for you! This class will encourage artistic exploration and conversation about the ways in which we interact with the cultural and geological landscapes of Banff National Park, with themes of Truth & Reconciliation woven throughout.
