Monochromatic Portraits are created using simple techniques from F. Haddock portrait workshops.

Preregister and send in three images that you would like to paint- either a family member, an Idol/Rock star, a friend, actress, anything that interests you. Images with high contrast and shadows work the best.

The simple instructions are easy to follow and optimized for a successful outcome.

Thanks to Neighborhood Small Grants this workshop is completely FREE!

Various parks and public spaces in Hillside/Quadra, beginning and finishing at the CDI College, 970 Kings Rd.

The Love Where You Live campaign is a litter reduction program being piloted for the Hillside/Quadra community.

The program goals are to establish a framework for a sustainable year round reduction of litter through a sharing of effort and awareness via community gatherings once a month.

The attendees will be hosted to a continental breakfast (with Gluten free and Vegan considerations) and an opportunity to participate in workshops on different topics providing community input towards the final vision.
