Urban Sketching

Join Julie Ourceau to learn more about the history of Exhibition Place and the range of architecture styles featured on site, while developing your observational and urban sketching skills. Each workshop session will focus on a different architectural style, featuring a specific building and its surroundings.

  • These workshops are open to all abilities and skill levels.
  • Sketchers can choose their individual drawing media (pencil, charcoal, markers, watercolour, etc.).
  • Basic supplies will be provided , but participants are encouraged to bring their own supplies. Suggested sketching materials include: a sketchpad, graphite pencil (HB or RB), pencil sharpener, ruler or set square, stool or other portable seating, and a camera or phone (for reference images).
  • For questions, please contact community@explace.on.ca.
  • Each workshop is approximately two hours long and participants are asked to meet at the entrance to Heritage Court, (19 Nunavut Rd.).
  • Follow us on X (formerly known as Twitter) and Facebook for event updates.
  • Proceeds from these workshops will be donated to our neighbour, CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health).
