Thank you to Erin of the newly opened Collage Collage in Vancouver for stocking our little magazine for the creative and curious.
"Collage Collage is a place that strives to uphold the tremendous creative abilities that children have, in surrondings that adults find equally stimulating, provoking and above all, inspiring. Collage Collage is a store, a school, a gallery and a workshop for children and adults. It's a place to find some art supplies, a story book, a small sculpture or a new pair of scissors." Sounds marvelous!
Their workshops sound fantastic: I want to sign up for this one:
Inspired by Marcel Dzama, Mixing Colors
Drawing and Painting for 5-6 years
Students will experiment with a palette based on Dzama's work. After reading a story book based on his work, and looking at some of the works of his collective, The Royal Art Lodge, children will be shown how Dzama mixes imagery from life and the imagination. Children will experiment with trying out their own dream-like creatures and then painting in their drawings. Ideas will start in a sketchbook warm up, and then move to large paper. Like Dzama, students will start with pencil drawings then layer ink and paint washes.
If you're in Vancouver, go visit Collage Collage this weekend!
