Join us for a virtual exploration and create two-and three-dimensional art works that explore colour, pattern and texture, based on some of the most famous artists and art pieces of past and present. This mixed media-based class will allow children to learn about many art materials and techniques and is designed to give young artists an appreciation and understanding of art history in a fun and creative way. Imagination is encouraged and you will turn your ideas into works of art that will be your very own masterpieces!
Exploring Keith Herring’s Pop Art people, positive words, and brightly coloured graffiti-like work.

Paint brushes of various sizes (such as a multi-pack from Dollarama)

Rysyk’s personal practice uses semiotics through object-making to express her concerns on modern world-systems. Contemplating and responding to environmental issues is important facet of her work. She explores concepts of decay and preservation within ecosystems and environments. Jessica communicates humankind’s relationships with the environment and mass-consumption through object-based metaphors. Please visit jessicarysyk.com.
