STREET ART 101: PROJECTS FOR PUBLIC SPACES - for beginners (adults).
This course introduces street art basics to burgeoning artists looking to transform public space. Walks will inspire us to think about urban space differently while drawings and sculptures are transformed for everyday use. How might one commission for public art projects? What parameters to follow as a professional street artist? These questions will be discussed in this lively course.

Monday, July 13 - Friday July 17, 2015 (@ Orleans Campus). 

This course will introduce the street art basics to burgeoning young artists with a desire to reach an audience beyond the gallery walls. How can classroom creations fit into public space and transform the everyday environment? Walking tours around the Orleans campus will inspire students to think about urban space differently. We will observe the signs, signals and stories of the street to inspire our temporary drawings and installations. We will begin with drawing and sculpture, then move on to stencil, sticker art, wheatpasting and street poster art, mosaic tiling, murals, street installations, woodblocking and yarn bombing as we emerge from the gallery and immerse ourselves in the life of the street. How might we transform our drawings for everyday use; how do we create commissions for public art projects; how might store owners and street artists build a community; which are the parameters to follow as a professional street artist. All of these questions and more will be discussed in this lively course. Open to beginner/intermediate levels.

INTRO to NATURAL PIGMENTS - for beginners (adults). INTRODUCTION aux PIGMENTS NATURELS - pour débutants (adults)

Creating our own paint and pigment is not only fun; it helps us reconnect to the materials we use to make art, while minimizing toxic exposure. During the workshop, we will explore the basic elements of paint (including binders and pigments), cover aspects of history, chemistry and affordability. This one day workshop will highlight recipes for gesso, tempera, watercolour and gouache. Deepen your knowledge of paint mediums and experiment with recuperated surfaces upon which to paint. Understand the processes and advantages related to the creation of your own colours, while honing your improvisational skills. Participants will embark upon a collective art piece with recuperated materials. An information booklet with recipes and resources will be provided. Material kits will be sold at the beginning of the workshop (maximum cost of 25$)

Vous avez toujours voulu créer votre propre peinture à partir de produits naturels ? Venez apprendre à faire votre aquarelle, gouache, tempera, gesso et bien plus ! Créer sa propre peinture est un processus amusant qui nous permet de connaître d’avantage les substances avec lesquelles nous travaillons en art, tout en minimisant notre exposition aux produits toxiques. Dans cet atelier, nous explorerons les éléments de base de la peinture, incluant les liants et les pigments. Nous couvrirons différents aspects liés à l'histoire, à la chimie et aux coûts de production des matériaux en industrie versus le coût de fabrication à la maison. Cet atelier mettra l'accent sur quelques recettes permettant de produire différents types de peinture (aquarelle, gouache, tempera), gesso naturel et bien plus. Approfondissez vos connaissances et votre expérience de travail avec des surfaces récupérées sur lesquelles peindre. Découvrez les processus et les avantages liés à la création de vos propres couleurs lors de la création d'une oeuvre collective sur des matériaux recyclés. Un guide de ressources et de recettes sera fourni lors de l'atelier.
