Learn about these up and coming events:


Loree Ovens is a well-known Toronto printmaker. Her interest in washi paper (rice paper) led to several workshops at the Japanese Paper Place. Her website, Loree Ovens, gives you an idea of her style. Loree Ovens' workshop will show you how to use both sides of your rice paper; also, some simple resist techniques. Do you like to explore different pathways in art? This workshop is for you!
When: Saturday, February 8th, 9:30 am to noon.
Where: Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre
More information: Bring a flat (haki) brush, colours, pencil, newspapers, knife, cutting board, white acrylic paint if you have it.
Loree Ovens will help with these supplies if you don't have them.
A meeting of the executive follows.
Bring a cup! We have styrofoam cups for tea but ecology-minded members suggest a cup is better.
Cost: $20 for members. $30 for guests. Cash, debit, credit or cheque.

Looking Back to January: We learned how to paint mice and squirrels in the Year of the Rat workshop with Tien Chang.

Looking Forward to Saturday, March 14th: Po Man Chan joins us for another engaging workshop.
