Artist-at-Work Demonstrations

The Artist-at-Work program features an artist or group of artists who demonstrate their craft in a high-traffic area of the library. The artist performs two demonstrations in a one-month period, usually on Saturdays. One demonstration takes place at Central Library and one at a community library.

Artist at Work

Pointillism with Laura Thomson

Saturday, January 12 from 1 pm - 3 pm
Central Library

Saturday, January 19 from 1 pm - 3 pm
Grand River Stanley Park

Laura Thomson has loved drawing for most of her life and recently began creating images using only dots. The technique is called Stippling or Pointillism. All lines, shading and anything else that you see on the page is done by individual dots.

Laura enjoys the challenge of doing everything with pen, because "you either live with whatever 'mistakes' you make or start over again." She does individual and personalized drawings on commission.
