SEPTEMBER 30: Botanical Clay Impressions
During this workshop we will press delicate impressions of fall leaves we have gathered to create beautiful pottery leaves.
THANKSGIVING! OCTOBER 7: Giving Thanks
Inspirational Feathers on Canvas: Art is a great way to express your thoughts and this workshop will talk about how to use colour, how to paint a whimsical feather and how to combine an inspiring quotation with your painting to create a meaningful and thoughtful piece of art for Thanksgiving.
OCTOBER 21: Mixed Media Assemblage
This workshop will allow your imagination to wander as we create assemblages which are pieces of art made by combining found objects together. A blank canvas will be our starting point as we combine Japanese paper, buttons, fabric scraps, yarn, paint and more together to create a landscape.
OCTOBER 28: Painted Pumpkins
Greet your Trick-or-Treaters this Hallowe’en with a funky painted pumpkin on your doorstep! Using acrylic paint we will learn about various painting techniques while we create one-of-a-kind art on pumpkins!
NOVEMBER 18: Moon Scratchboard
We will use the various shades of blue, purple, silver, white and turquoise to create whimsical scratchboard drawings of the moon. By scratching away the paint layer and revealing the coloured wax underneath we will be able to explore the various textures in our drawing while we ask ourselves: what do you see when you look at the moon?
Participants will have the opportunity to do a specific art projects OR they can choose to work on other self-guided projects in a variety of media. These workshops are a fun way to learn a variety of media and customize your own art projects! These small workshops will encourage your child to develop their own unique approach to art making and will allow them to work on projects in watercolour, printmaking, acrylic painting, sculpture, chalk pastel and more… Students will be encouraged to develop their own ideas and subject matter and will be taught according to their own interests!
