Acclaimed artist Mo Hamilton will lead participants in this fun collage workshop to create a stunning, personalised work of art which preserves your memories or tells your story of Canada using your own memorabilia!
The workshop will introduce participants to new mixed-media techniques, focusing on value, colour theory, design, texture, and collage. Suitable for any experience level!
Things to bring to collage into your artwork:
- old maps
- photos (photocopies, not originals)
- old book pages
- textured fabric (natural fibre only)
- old tea towels
- textured wall paper
- any other personal items and memorabilia
If they wish, participants are warmly invited to put their finished artwork into the Canada 150+: What's Your Story? exhibition in the Gallery and Museum, June 13-July 15, 2017!
Smithers Art Gallery and the Bulkley Valley Museum are excited to be collaborating on our project "Canada 150+: What's Your Story?", a community exhibition and series of thematic workshops through which we hope to engage and bring together our diverse community to build a better understanding of our different experiences and shared commonality.
