Today, I am posting a couple sketches from Westmount, where I am taking my painting class from the Visual Arts Centre. The Visual Arts Centre started out as the Potter’s Club in 1946 but now they have over 1000 students taking all sort of art related courses.
The area it is located is called Westmount. What I found interesting is that the city tries so hard not to be part of Montreal. According to Wikipedia. The city was “first incorporated as city in 1874 and remained so until Jan 1, 2002 when it was forced to become a borough of the City of Montreal. On June 20, 2004, it voted to ‘demerge’ and became an independent city again on Jan 1. 2006.” There you have it, this area certainly have a distinctive flavor.
