The Self-Taught Artist with Corey Hardeman

Downtown Vancouver
Sat, February 10, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Sat, February 10, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Join Corey as she explains how artists create work outside of traditional academic settings and the autodidact (self-taught) approach to visual art.

She will also cover how to make time for an artistic practice, making a leap from a regular job to full time practice, and using the internet to promote your work. As a self-taught artist herself, her experience can help inspire you to establish your own creative career.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Downtown Vancouver or contact them at 604‑678‑5889 to register.

Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Corey Hardeman has drawn since she could first hold a pencil. Her formal education in biology and, later, in architectural drafting have both influenced her art making, which combines elements of traditional illustration and technical drawing with a love of tonal painting, an abiding interest in biomechanics and an eye for tension and movement.

She considers her paintings to be documents rendered with oil paint, expressing her love of her surroundings as part of an ongoing conversation with the past, and is preoccupied with the creation of a sense of refuge from time.
