WINTER / SPRING WORKSHOP SCHEDULE FOR LOCAL COLOUR ART GROUP
February 9 - Dianne
All you need to bring is a white t-shirt, a roll of aluminum foil, a roll of 1” wide masking tape a pair of scissors and your enthusiasm. You will learn how to cover a simple base, how to sculpt a figure with aluminum foil, how to manipulate and tape an armiture, how to use Paverpol and the proper clean up and disposal of the product. Class features Terra Cotta or Bronze Paverpol.
PAVERPOL is the world’s #1 fiber sculpting medium, and the only one awarded the AP non-toxic safety seal from the Arts and Crafts Creative Materials Institute. Paverpol was originally developed for use in making large outdoor sculptures, but was quickly adopted into other media. This environmentally friendly, water-based hardener is harmless to people, plants and animals. It is a one-step, non-toxic creme that gives artists and crafters a serious new medium with which expand their scope of work, either indoors or outside. In addition to fabrics, Paverpol can be used with paper, paper mache, silk, metal, canvas, polystyrene foam, dried botanicals, polymer clay, plaster, concrete, pottery, and stone.

March 9 & 10 - Yisa Akinbolaji
2 Day Workshop
Artist’s Statement :My selected area of expertise: acrylic, oil, watercolour, monotype printmaking, collage mixed-media, mosaic, and drawing are my common media. At the start of my career in 1985 and up until 1993, I created using mainly figurative expressionism, realism, minimalism and abstract. Beginning from 1993, I began to play more with materials, which enables me to experiment with fluency, hence my art forms began to lean more towards abstraction. In doing so, I began to fully enjoy the manipulation of colours and elements that I have mastered over the years. In some ways, I have been able to start a style that is unique to me.
Workshop Description: I will conduct an action-packed abstract acrylic mixed-media workshop. I start the class with an introduction on method and materials, and I set aside up to 15 minutes at the end of the workshop to discuss and enable instructor and participants to share feedback.Five samples of works of five masters will be shown and discussed to illustrate what is important in and about each style. This will take about 20 or 25 minutes depending on questions that follow. That exercise will follow method and materials introduction. What this would do is guide participants about how to produce works in series or in developing unique style.
