About this event

Join us for art and creative skill-building workshops led by Master of Arts Art Education students at the Anna Gallery. All workshops are free.

Please Register for each workshop individually. No registration required for the mending drop-in.

All workshops happen in the gallery space in conjunction with our exhibition:

Community of Practice: Create/Activate/Extend draws parallels between visual media, performance art, and community-based practice to map the ways Master of Art in Art Education students make sense of their own communities. Each of the works presented reflect on how we relate to space and place, where we find solace or tension, and how we move through our communities.

In addition to the multimedia works on display, workshop-like activations of the gallery space hosted by Art Education students pose an opportunity for the NSCAD community to actively participate with the artists/researchers/teachers in continuing to extend the boundaries and connections of our communities.
