You can tune in online to a drawing class offered by Coquitlam’s Place des Arts — for free.
Kiranjot Kaur, who recently exhibited her Sovereign Elevations illustrations at the Maillardville venue, guides viewers through YouTube videos in English, French and Punjabi.
Worksheets are also available in English, French, Korean, Chinese (traditional), Punjabi, Farsi and Arabic.
A PhD student at UBC, the Surrey resident shows viewers — of all ages and artistic abilities — how to draw people using the “bean body” approach.
The outreach is part of the Creative HeARTs program in partnership with SHARE Family and Community Services, as well as other social service groups; it is geared to new Canadians and marginalized families to explore the arts.
The series was funded by the Government of Canada, the City of Coquitlam, Coquitlam Foundation and Human Rights Internet.
