art n’ soul

7 Aug

I helped co-teach an adult art workshop with the incredible mixed media artist Carney Oudendag today titled ‘Art ‘n Soul”. The class list was full with 10 wonderful ladies who came out, ready to get their hands dirty and have some fun! Carney taught a bunch of her fabulous mixed media, texture, and collage techniques, while I shared a bit on altered books, found narrative, and simple printmaking techniques. Here are some of the completed pieces which we sat in the window sill for a mini-critique at the end of the day. These artists really made some lovely mixed media pieces. These are the two altered book pages I made as examples for the demos.  It was a really positive experience and fun to share the techniques, innovation & excitement inherent in altered art. This past month full of teaching, exhibitions and expos have been both rewarding, tiring, exciting and challenging… but all well worth it in the end. I am happy to have had a successful and well received “art road-trip” but am definitely looking forward to returning back home to 100 Mile House at the end of the week.
