Me and Myself
Think about what makes you unique and express it in shape and colour with paper, pastel, paint, and mixed media. Assemble and take home a life-sized self-portrait.

Get inspired by space and all things astronomical. Paint a solar system, make a space station and a diorama of your favourite planet. Is it Mars or Jupiter?

Try printmaking techniques such as monoprinting, stenciling and stamping. Work on the Studio print press, and incorporate watercolours and mixed media into your art prints.

Experiment with fabrics and yarns to explore stitching, quilting, and weaving. Discover the range of creativity available in fiber arts. Make something practical or create a great art piece for pure fun.

Friday March 16
Landscape Visions
Start with a visit to the new AGP exhibition Light in the Land, the Nature of Canada by the famed Canadian astronaut and photographer Roberta Bondar, and get inspired by her panoramic images of Canadian landscape. Back in the studio, map out your own landscapes with pastel and paint and mixed media.
