Perceptions and Perspectives
December 13, 2013

Perceptions and Perspectives: St. Paul’s Church is an exhibition of drawings by NSCAD students in Ian McKinnon’s Foundation-level class, Drawing I.

As Ian explains, students not only learn how to draw in his class, but how to see. “Drawing is a way of seeing. Drawing can, if we allow it to, alter and re-new our way of seeing.”

The drawings of the church's interior by 19 NSCAD students are now on display in the church, which has a history stretching back 260 years in Halifax. St. Paul's Anglican Church is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.

The drawings will also be available for view during Christmas on the Grand Parade, a special free concert with readings and music taking place Monday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. (The concert was postponed a day due to Sunday's inclement weather.) Guests include St. Paul’s Church Choir and Music Ensemble, The Bedford Brass Quintet, harpist Ellen Gibling and saxophonist David Christensen.  A post-concert reception is planned for guests and performers and will serve as the official opening for the drawing exhibition.
