Making books for art is a way of moving from large paintings to smaller ideas and sharing those ideas in a portable way. Liz Menard, our instructor, will walk you through the art book creation process. Liz Menard has had other workshops on making art books such as her Japanese Bookbinding workshop. Learn about a way to share your art in book form!

When: Saturday, March 9th, 9:30 am to noon.
Where: Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC)
Room: 2D on the second floor
Cost: $30 for members. $40 for guests.
There is an increase of $10 to our regular cost to cover materials.

Looking Back: In February, we painted flowers with William Ho in the Flowers workshop.

Celebration of Hiroshi Yamamoto's Life

Hiroshi Yamamoto taught sumi-e art to countless students over several decades. His own work, often on display at our sumi-e art shows, was described as playful, expressive, contemplative, spiritual. Perhaps you were fortunate enough to attend his Abstract Bamboo workshop.

This celebration reminds us of a remarkable artist who will be in our memory for many more years!

Invitation: Celebration of Hiroshi Yamamoto
When: Sunday, March 24th, 1 pm to 5 pm.
Where: Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC)
Room: Kobayashi Hall
