Smartphone Studio Workshop
Jan 29 2022
event: workshop online

Smartphone Studio invites you to explore the process of making art on your phone. Join Toronto-based artist Emily Condie as she guides you through an approach of making digital paintings and process sketches from anywhere, using functions available on any smartphone.

Emily will discuss how she uses this process in her studio practice, then go through a step by step activity where you will create your own artwork. Starting with just a pen and paper or the notes app on your phone, we will use photo editing functions like crop, contrast, brightness, and more to make an interesting and unique composition you can use as a reference image, digital background, or finished art piece!


Emily Condie is an artist, writer, curator, and multidisciplinary creative from Toronto, who holds a BFA from OCAD University, with a specialization in Drawing and Painting.

Through a combination of research, material exploration and creative writing in her studio practice; Emily explores theoretical frameworks like affect theory, non objective painting, and sensory experiences related to memory, to create physical and digital paintings.

Emily is also a communications coordinator and emerging arts administrator, who is passionate about creating paid professional opportunities for emerging artists and designers, cultivating community art spaces, and facilitating unspoken connections between artist and audience.

Emily currently has work in private and corporate collections across Ontario, and is continuing to define a role for herself within the creative landscape of Toronto.

Tickets for this event are pay what you can (PWYC).
