Event description

Description

Turn trash into treasure with artist Amy Joy Watson in this fun and inventive workshop. A celebrated multi-disciplinary artist, Watson will share the secrets to her distinct geometric application of watercolour and thread. Starting with a treasure hunt for found objects in the eclectic West End, you’ll construct a Vanitas inspired still-life to transform into a take-home painting of your own.

Watson will guide you through basic water colour techniques, with emphasis on capturing the geometric and multi-faceted qualities of your display, as well as ways to incorporate lines using metallic thread to illuminate the three-dimensional planes in your work.

This workshop promises to be a highlight for anyone interested in working with found materials and incorporating elements of sustainable practice into their work. All materials and refreshments will be provided. There will be a 30-minute lunchbreak during this program (lunch is not included in the price of this workshop).
