Join us at the Richmond Hill Public Library in Richmond Hill Ontario Canada on Saturday September 29th. Watch this space for the exact time of David’s presentation but IWS Canada will be there from 10 am until 3pm with opportunities for you to experiment with watercolour.
David McEown, our Canada 150 national winner (see ‘150 Ways to Celebrate’), will be presenting, “Water and Light, an Artist’s Journey from Antarctica to the North Pole”.
David narrates an entertaining digital show that merges painting, video and photography inspired from travels in the Great Bear Rainforest, Africa, Antarctica and the North Pole. Stories of chance encounters with many creatures including polar bears and emperor penguins are woven together with reflections on the environment, and the inner creative process of painting with watercolour.
“Experiment with Watercolour” activities will also be set up outside (or inside if inclement weather) to encourage the public to give it a try. We welcome your participation in this. Let us pass our enthusiasm for watercolour on to the local community hosting us for this event.
Saturday, September 29, 2018, 10am-3pm
Venue: Richmond Hill Central Library as part of the Canada wide Culture Days event.
