Make Art Not Waste 

In this workshop, we'll explore the world of Eco Art through mixed media collage. Together we’ll work with a variety of recycled, upcycled and natural materials. You'll learn some basic mixed media skills and create your own collage papers with acrylic paint, pens, pastels and charcoal. You can create to your heart's desire, or allow your art to be guided through a number of free writing prompts that you can incorporate into your creations. 


During this workshop, you'll create: 

  • Three 4" x 4" mixed media collages mounted on reclaimed wood.

  • A mini mixed media art journal made from the waste materials produced during the workshop.


I hope you’ll join me at Workshop Studios for this zero-waste mixed media workshop to celebrate Earth Day!

Art For Change

April 6th from 10-4pm

This workshop is inspired by the work of Joanna Macy, a respected voice for over six decades in movements for peace, justice and ecology.

“Of all the dangers we face, from climate chaos to nuclear war, none is so great as the deadening of our response.” - Joanna Macy

Our ability to confront problems collectively has diminished, leaving many people isolated and overwhelmed. I believe that when we connect with others who share our concerns, we have an opportunity to respond together and cultivate the inner resources necessary to show up for this important work at this critical time in our history. 

I hope you’ll join me on April 6 at the Leighton Art Centre to journey through the four part spiral process created by Joanna Macy, known as The Work That Reconnects. In the afternoon we will express ourselves through mixed media collage.

Have you ever been to the Leighton Art Centre? If not, you’re in for a real treat. It’s located about 30 minutes south of Calgary on 80 acres of foothills landscape within Treaty 7 territory.
