Ditch your paintbrush and spend the afternoon with gravity-painting pioneer Amy Shackleton in the beautiful Museum of Dufferin!

About this Event

Ditch your paintbrush and spend the afternoon with gravity-painting pioneer Amy Shackleton. Enjoy a private tour of Amy's exhibition at the MoD entitled "Playing with Fire + Ice", observe in-class demonstrations and experiment with this unconventional technique. Under Shackleton’s guidance, learn how to paint with squeeze bottles and rotate your canvas to create your very own 11” x 14” landscape painting.

*ALL skill levels are welcome!

*Source imagery and materials included.

*Please bring your own refillable water bottle. Wear comfortable clothes/shoes that you don't mind getting paint on.

Who is Amy?

Inspired by her travels, Amy Shackleton’s work explores the conflicting relationships between humanity and the environment. She blends cities with nature to depict our uncertain future – be it utopian or apocalyptic. Shackleton’s inventive painting process has engaged over 15 million viewers online. Rather than paintbrushes, she uses squeeze bottles and gravity as her primary tools for creation. Liquid paint is dripped, poured and layered as the canvas is rotated to navigate. Architectural aspects of her work are calculated and controlled, while natural elements embody the spontaneous, liquid impulse.
