Get Drawing: Year of the Ox Workshop | Online

February 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

It’s an uncertain time for all of us so we invite you to stop, look, breathe and do some drawing for an hour

Join in with this mindful art session where you will have the freedom and support to unwind and to get creative in a series of guided drawing activities with artist Pui Lee.

Chinese New Year is one of the most important holidays in China. Commonly referred to as the Spring Festival, it is the festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional lunar calendar. Each year is matched to one of the twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac. 2021 is a year of the Ox. People born in the year of the Ox are known for being hard-working, dependable, strong and determined.

As a warm-up exercise, you will get the opportunity to play with shapes on paper to create a playful image of an Ox. For the main activity, Pui Lee will show you step-by step how to draw an Ox! She will then show you how to complete your picture by either adding tone and/or colour using the drawing tools and/or using collage possibilities.

Art is always great for relaxation, reduction of stress and above all, is good fun! This workshop is well suited for those not so confident with drawing, aiming to help get you started with some creative ideas and techniques to try out. You will end up with some drawings that you can continue with at your own leisure if you don’t finish within the session itself.

  • A clear workspace which has a firm and steady surface
  • A4 white paper
  • Pencils
  • Rubber
  • Sharpener
  • Colouring pens/pencils (optional)
  • Soft pastels (optional)
