KSOA Story Box Art Workshop

STORY BOX ART WORKSHOP Begins January 21-February 18 6:30-9:30 PM or
March 4- April 8 6:30-9:30 PM
Instructor Lee-Ann Taras
Kingston School of Art

This workshop is open to everyone, experienced & budding artists alike.
We will be doing a mixed media project (paint, pastel & found objects
glued to canvas) to create "story boxes". Your story can be as detailed
or abstract as you like. It may be about your family, a trip, a passion,
a dream, a mood. I am hoping that there will be time at the end of the
workshop to discuss the making & meaning of your boxes.

I will guide you through the steps:
1. Prep: texturing of the canvas with a primer
2. Colour techniques & design with paint & pastel
3. Using your found objects to enhance/continue with colour & design
4. Assembly

What to bring:
There will be a materials list provided at the KSOA for participants to
purchase their art supplies before classes begin. Also bring a work
shirt or apron, bits & bobs for collage ( some suggestions: buttons,
yarn, shells, stones, hardware, old jewellery, photographs or
photocopies- anything that tickles your fancy or has meaning to you),
fabric or handmade paper to cover 2 6"x 12" panels.
Rummage through your recycling box for plastic, glass, metal or
cardboard objects to press into gesso for making interesting shapes when
texturing canvas

I will also have found bits for texturing the canvas and recycled
clothing on hand for use in the making of the boxes.
