This year for Culture Days Sophie Babeanu and I did have a fun activity where participants were drawing a selfie, the old fashion way 🙂 That is without a cell phone.
This year again, we invite you to participate in an exciting activity for Culture Days!
It is going to be fun, everyone can do it, kids will love it and it will take you about 10-30 minutes.
No painting or drawing skills required, all you need to know is to look into a mirror and trace!
You will make a selfie, the old fashion way 🙂 We will use a mirror and a simple print system. Your self portrait will be scanned and you can take it home, and why not use it as your new profile picture?
This activity will be facilitated by art therapist Sophie Babeanu and visual Artist Sandrine Pelissier
Tactile Forest brings the theme of botanical life into the gallery landscape. Mossy greens, golden browns, sea and sky blues mimic our natural world through acrylic and oil paints, ceramic and fibre sculpture, contemporary embroidery and unique mixed media photographic works.
Each of the seven artists imbue their experience of nature through diverse mediums, reflecting the diversity of the tactile and intangible within our forests and the connection art has with nature.
Artists: Bev Ellis, Julie Johnston, Jane Kenyon, ByNature Designs,
Zed Payne, Sandrine Pelissier and Heather Talbot.
Artist Talk | Thursday, Sept 15, 6:30-7:30pm Join Nicolas Rousseau, BSc, MSc, Horticulture Engineer and ByNature President as he leads us in a discussion about biophilia, the importance of bringing nature into our interior spaces and the intrinsic bond between humans and other living systems.
