How does colour communicate mood? Take in mid-twentieth century Canadian art in our current exhibition, William Townsend: Painting Alberta, Details of Canada and then express yourself on a large scale through creative colour mixing in-studio!
Time to layer up! Experience Peter Von Tiesenhausen: Songs for Pythagoras and its themes of nature and industry. Look for distinct textures throughout the exhibition to use in-studio. Use a reductive relief print to recreate the various found textures.
Take a closer look at the natural world around you! Gloria Mok’s exhibition, Metamorphosis, explores ideas found in science and medicine. Get inspired by Mok’s process and head over to the studio to create your own watercolour sketches using various techniques.
What makes you think of home? In our new exhibition, Hubert Hohn: Edmonton Entrances and Suburban Landscapes, photographs share an engaging story of domestic architecture. Inspired by the façade of your own home, create a vibrant multi-layered screenprint to share your story.
What makes a certain place special? In LandMark: A New Chapter Acquisition Project, Alberta Indigenous artists take inspiration from the land, nature, and storytelling to create intriguing contemporary art. Try out a familiar landscape in an unconventional medium like embroidery.
Inspired by the themes and organic elements found in current exhibition focused on the work of Métis artists from across Canada, Li Salay (Michif for “the sun”), use materials like wire, wood, and plaster bandages to create a small abstract sculpture.
Time to celebrate the start of summer! After spending some time outside doing some sketches “en plein air”, come back to the studio to recreate your findings using plasticine as your paint! Squish, smoosh, and massage your way into a unique and summery artwork.
