We'll briefly go over the origin of geometric and Islamic patterns while marvelling at pictures of beautiful works. Next we'll get right into it, we'll use a compass and ruler to design and draft our patterns. After that, we'll paint using beautiful watercolours on canvas boards. Finally we'll finish off our masterpieces with touches of gold, silver or copper if desired.
I'm a Montreal-based artist with a special focus on Islamic pattern design. I've traveled to Morocco, Spain and Turkey to study these designs. I conduct weekly workshops and can teach you how to go from a blank sheet of paper to a wonderful masterpiece! Feel free to take a look at my Instagram @sumayyah_petrus.
coffee or tea
Paint, paper, canvas
This location is in the heart of Montreal's Plateau area. There are all kinds of shops around and it is bustling. We'll be able to have a cup of coffee or tea while painting our masterpieces.
This is a family friendly activity. You do not need any previous experience and you don't have to be an artist to do this workshop. The cafe is located upstairs.
