Event description

Description

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
School Program sessions are held in conjunction with the exhibition on display at the gallery. Students receive an exhibition tour followed by an artist-led hands-on workshop. We offer flexible projects catering to both elementary and secondary school classes.

This is an excellent opportunity for students to meet professional artists and benefit from their experience. Each session is enhanced by the ambiance of the gallery and the exposure to original art. Here we are, right in your neighborhood, opening our doors to children and youth to enhance their knowledge, help them appreciate art and let them find inspiration to better express themselves.

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
Students will first tour the exhibition 'Manifestation of Intention' with exhibiting artist Steve Baylis. Exploring his large-scale wax and oil paintings, they will discuss ways of viewing abstract artwork and their own emotional responses to colour.

Baylis will outline his creative process including his mark-making techniques, thoughtful colour choices, and use of glazing and layering colour to build up his painting surfaces.

In a hands-on workshop, Baylis will then lead students in a playful abstract collage project where they will experiment using cut shapes, transparent paints, and colour.

Using pieces of canvas paper pre-painted with transparent colours, students will cut out shapes to create their own abstract composition inspired by the paintings in the exhibition. After gluing their shapes onto a piece of canvas paper and adding detail with a marker, students will add a layer of transparent paint on top of their collage. This final layer will change the colours beneath and reveal the depth that can be achieved through glazing.
