There’s another great learning opportunity for emerging artists at the Humboldt and District Gallery this Saturday, July 13 with a sketching workshop. The session will be led by Leane Harasymchuk whose exhibition Sketches from Home is on now at the Gallery.  

Leane has adopted the urban sketch style and applied it to numerous iconic local buildings and streetscapes with an attentive eye and whimsical spirit. She’ll talk about how artists can use sketch skills for finished work and to springboard to other visual art outlets.  

“We are going to practice some different sketching skills: we’re going to use different materials,” Leane explains. “We’re going to look at both smaller and larger objects and figure out how to get those on the page.” 

With cooperative weather, Harasymchuk says the goal is to get outside and head out to get some outdoor inspiration and some sketching focused on natural and human made objects.  

The workshop is $20 per person, and limited spots are available. To register, call 306-682-5226 or email
