Drawing – A Foundation for Artists

Explore the fundamentals of drawing and discover the expressive qualities of pen and ink, with local artist Kelly Stevenson!

Kelly is a graduate of OCADU’s Drawing & Painting program in 2012, her work embraces the use of non-linear narratives and a naïve aesthetic. She views the work as a by-product of the process; attempting to understand the world we live in, and how the proliferation of black and white viewpoints has led to the increasing dehumanization of those whose faces do not directly reflect our own.
