FREE Lecture: Choosing Artists' Paper & Pads

How to Select the Right Artists’ Paper and Pad for You! - featuring Canson Fine Art Papers

Join us for this informative talk and demonstration on the full line of popular Canson Artist pads and papers. As artists , we usually start the creative process by making sketches to work out our ideas or we create and finish works of art entirely on paper and require quality to ensure longevity. In short, paper is important to the artist, however, it can be confusing when shopping - what do all these terms means?

In this 1 hour demo you will learn about:

  • what’s in a sheet of paper?
  • why is paper weight important?
  • what does acid-free mean?
  • what exactly is sizing?

and much more!

Bring your favourite pencils, markers. pastels and water-based paints to try out various pads to see what suits your style better. Each attendee will receive a free copy of Canson’s Guide to Fine Art Papers booklet and there will be draws for free art supplies too!

Presented by: David Lidbetter, local artist and art material educator for Royal Talens/ Canson.
