Creative Journalling

Based loosely on The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, this mixed media class will have you exploring your creativity in a supportive environment. Whether you’re new to exploring various art techniques and media, keen on stretching your writing muscles, a seasoned writer or artist working through a project or just taking a break, or someone who wants to use creative expression as a means of healing through issues, this class has something for everyone. We will explore different themes and ways of expressing them. You supply the journal (but you may want to wait until after the first class to decide what kind). All other supplies are included. No experience necessary. Please contact Maraya at 403 474-4147 or RedShoesOnTheRoad@gmail.com for the next set of classes.

MIXED MEDIA DOLL SCULPTURE

Construct a small figurative sculpture from found objects. We will start by building a base and an armature. The design of your doll may be sketched ahead of time or you can work spontaneously with the rest. Most supplies will be provided but feel free to bring in items that inspire you (i.e. swatches of cloth, bits of jewellery) and if enough – maybe share and swap with other participants. This is usually a full day workshop.

This is a two-hour self-discovery workshop good for preparing participants for resume writing and job interviewing, and for team-building. Very simple drawing is involved – no experience necessary.
