Bottega is the official journal and newsletter of the Drawing Society of Canada. Bottega is the Italian name that describes the art studios of the great Renaissance of the 1500's. Bottega features news about the society, timely articles about the fine art of drawing, and valuable writings of great authors especially when we reprint books about drawing that are out of print. Bottega also features the brief biographies of Canadian drawing masters and honourable members of the society. Bottega is available in printed and online formats and free to all who ask.
