Symposium Experience

Enjoy a hands-on experience in water media taught by experienced workshop instructors at a great facility near the Rocky Mountain foothills. The Symposium will be held at the Alberta College of Art and Design which has lots of classroom and conference areas along with cafeteria and lodging nearby for those staying on site. You will enjoy the opportunities to visit the Rocky Mountains as well as experiencing some of the vibrant culture of the City of Calgary.

This unique watercolour symposium is open to everyone. Our team of professional watercolour artists will offer diverse perspectives on watercolour and water media painting. Hands-on participation is a priority! This will be a fabulous experience for artists, from beginner to advanced, who are looking for something different and challenging. Forums will offer the chance for two-way communication. There will be presentations, demonstrations, excursions, – and more!

Draw More Income EP10: Draw More Income Panel Discussion

Here’s the newest episode of the podcast! This time we bring you back to September with our recording of the Draw More Income Panel. It was filled with insight from our panelists Derek Besant, Lee Deranger, Brittney Tough, and Kari Woo on how they manage to make a living as an artist. Afterwards, they help our audience answer their own questions about the professional aspects of being an artist. All of this was conducted by the ever-intriguing Chris Carson, executive director of Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC.

We were so happy to have hosted this talk and to be putting podcasts out again. We will be releasing a new episode on the 15th of each month now, so stay tuned.

We’d also like to give a big thanks to ACAD for hosting us and to Elephant Artists Relief for co-hosting this wonderful event with us! Elephant Artist Relief Society (EAR) is a registered charity that provides practical resources to Calgary visual artists in order to help sustain their well-being and livelihood, contributing to a vibrant cultural community.
