By popular demand, another Stone Bear Carving workshop will be held. This time the project will be a crouching bear in brown stone.
When: Saturday May 25, 09:00 to 17:00
Where: Smith and Barber Atelier
1520 Triole (Belfast and St. Laurent, behind Red Lobster)
Workshop Leader: Patrick Imai
Looking for a special handmade gift to give for a wedding or other occasion. Learn how to carve stone using hand tools. You will be guided by the instructor, Patrick Imai, through the stone carving process of cutting, shaping, sanding and polishing to produce a small bear, 3” x 3” x 5”. Tools and materials are provided.
Patrick Imai is a self-taught sculptor who has carved for more than 40 years. He has dabbled in other art forms: sketching, painting and glass (stained, fused, flamework), but he always returned to carving. He carved in wood, whittling small animals and figures with a pocket knife or with palm chisels, then in the late 90’s, Patrick tried stone carving. He was hooked by the ease of working with soapstone and by the colours and texture of the polished stone. He has since carved alabaster, serpentine, limestone, selenite and marble. Patrick has a passion for carving bears. He works to evoke human emotions and movement in his carvings.
Patrick is a member of Arteast, Arts Network Ottawa, the Kanata Civic Art Gallery and the National Capital Network of Sculptors.
Registration closing date is Tuesday May 14.

3. Misc. News
with Alan Bain – April 8th, 2019 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
This one day workshop will be held at the City Archive Facilities, Room 115, 100 Tallwood Ave. with Alan Bain. This workshop is for artists who want to learn how to prepare hard surfaces, such as Masonite or Birch panels, so that the panels will accept standard watercolour paints.
During the day you will apply a sequence of paints to two 10 X 12 panels – One of Masonite, a second of birch-faced hardboard. While you are waiting for each coat on the panels to dry, you will paint a watercolour on a prepared 10 X 12 masonite panel. Participants should bring their own watercolour paints and a subject or photo for inspiration.
The workshop is open to 14 participants and the cost is $45.00 per participant which includes three panels; one prepared and two that will be prepared during the workshop.
If you are interested in participating please register at email@example.com and issue payment at firstname.lastname@example.org. Payments can be made via Pay Pal or e transfer.
