This drop-in program is suitable for early to mid-stage visual artists who are looking to build on their practice by engaging in creative play with other local artists. Each session starts with a fun activity led by the artsPlace team and then continues with some open studio time for artists to chat, teach each other new skills and create collaboratively together. Some of these sessions will also include professional development specifically focused on the needs of Emerging Artists!
We are excited to launch this new program on World Creativity and Innovation Day! All skill levels are welcome.
For our first session on April 21st and to keep with the theme of the day, we will be painting with unconventional tools. Everything from forks, cardboard, shoelaces, or cups – we will have a pile of items to paint with. Feel free to bring other objects that inspire you! This activity welcomes you to explore what kind of result you can achieve with these strange materials and the fun you can have in the process. We will finish off the evening by sharing our creations and learning the language of doing art critiques.
Please note that at this time registration is required for each session, so that we can keep participant numbers low and allow lots of breathing space in the studio.
