How Does Artwork Draw Us In?

July 31, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Artist Birgit Coath explores the question: What makes some 2D artwork feel as though your are lured into it? Gain an understanding of what creates depth and discover several tools to help achieve it. Whether you are an artist wanting to hone your skills or an art appreciator wanting to understand why a piece appeals to you, this talk has something for everyone.

Early on, Birgit learned to closely examine the world around her to interpret and ultimately express her version of its uniqueness, resulting in paintings with a distinct sense that more of the story lurks just behind the canvas. She is an accomplished and multiple award-winning artist having earned the Signature Status with the Federation of Canadian Artists.
She has been honoured to receive coaching from world class artist, Donna Zhang. Donna has helped develop Birgit’s unique style without compromising her innate regard for the “old masters”. Her work is technically sound, exceptional and timeless.
