Event Details

Learn the fundamentals of block printing through the use of both hand carved blocks and unconventional upcycled materials. Join Papergirl artists Eryne Donahue & Tara Galuska for some bicycle inspired, engaging and lively art-making fun! 

Come prepared to get messy!

What Moves You? is a workshop that celebrates the bicycle and is open to anyone aged 12-99 of all skill levels. We'll be using upcycled materials and hand-crafted blocks to create our own unique artworks while learning the fundamentals of composition, colour, layering and masking techniques. Best of all, everyone will learn how to approach printing with unconventional materials to continue their creative journey at home!

Expect to create several different prints, one of which will be submitted to the 2013 Papergirl Vancouver exhibition at the Roundhouse. What a great way to join in this exciting global movement!

Come prepared to get messy with an old shirt, your own cup to help us stay environmentally concious, and most importantly- come ready to share your creativity. This event is by a suggested donation of $10.00 that can be made at the event registration table.

Papergirl Vancouver

OUR MISSION

Papergirl is an inclusive, non-commercial art project that brings people together in celebration of art and community in an unconventional way: through the spirit of altruism.

WHAT WE DO
In this annual project, artists of all ages and abilities are invited to donate their work to a non-juried exhibition.  Afterward, the artwork is rolled into bundles and is distributed by a team of cyclists (in the style of the American paperboy) to anyone they meet along specific bike routes around the lower mainland of British Columbia, Canada. 
WHY WE DO IT
We view this simple act as a significant performance, where the individual artworks become part of a larger community-engaged project. The gifting of art takes Papergirl participants and strangers outside of their everyday experience of the traditional market economy that identifies art consumers by socio-economic class and education. When an artist gives their work as a gift, they build a relationship with the recipient and with others affected by their creativity and this act of kindness. Papergirl brings art back to its identity as true creativity: a 'pure gift' that builds community through sharing. 
In 2012, the Vancouver Foundation came out with some solid research on the number one problem faced by Vancouverites:  one quarter of our population suffers from isolation and loneliness, and a majority of people complain on some level about the difficulty of meeting new people, and a lack of community. Papergirl Vancouver is taking steps to combat this problem by using art as a vehicle for social change.
