October 30: Drawing with Graphite Pencil

In these introductory drawing workshops, you will develop skills in drawing plants and flowers from observation. Using various drawing materials such as graphite pencil and pen, you will explore basic drawing techniques of line drawing, shading, stippling, and textural drawing while drawing from wild plants of the West Coast Botanical. Below you can find the list of plants chosen for each week. We will also discuss life cycle of these plants, how to collect them and how to preserve them by pressing.

October 30: Cattails (flowers), Wild rose (rosehips), and Salal (leaves)

Mehran will use these plants for step-by-step demonstrations. While Mehran encourages that you find one of the plants mentioned for each week and bring it to the online session, you are also welcome to choose any other plant of your choice.

You need to have access to a computer with video and sound, and a stable internet connection. Zoom also works with a smartphone or tablet. We encourage you to sign up early so that you can test out the link to make sure it works well for you.

Mehran Modarres-Sadeghi is a visual artist based in Vancouver, BC. Originally from Isfahan, Iran, she immigrated to Canada about 20 years ago where she has received an MFA in Visual Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2017) and a BFA from University of British Columbia (2007). Her recent practice is mostly engaged with drawing and sculpture, although she has worked in a variety of media such as photography, video, painting, and installation. Modarres-Sadeghi has exhibited her work at several art galleries in British Columbia, including group exhibitions at the Cityscape Community Art Space, Surrey Art Gallery, Concourse Gallery (ECU), Charles H. Scott Gallery (ECU), and Centre A. Her recent exhibition was a solo show at the Sunshine Coast Arts Council’s Doris Crowston Gallery in Sechelt, BC, in spring 2020. Modarres-Sadeghi’s work in this exhibition will be shown next at Gallery 1515 in Vancouver, BC, in fall 2021 and later at North Vancouver District Library in winter 2022.
