About this program
Creating our own paint is fun and reconnects us to our art materials. Produce an archival (permanent), artist quality paint, based on age old recipes used throughout art history, and learn basic painting techniques, using mineral and earth-based pigments. Participants will produce a unique piece of art to bring home.
Explore environmentally and socially engaged art, cultivate agency on ecological issues, foster creative confidence, independent thought, deepen artistic skills. Suitable for subjects in art and nature (earth sciences, ecology, biology, geography, history). Working with colour, texture, drawing, perception, measurement; explore the relationship between person and place.
