What a fabulous workshop! We had a great turn out on this sunny afternoon and lots of wonderful work was created. For the Altered Map project, we worked with maps as a canvas to explore what this landscape means to each of us. We used printmaking, drawing, painting, and stamping to add symbols, text, and imagery to maps of Richmond, Vancouver, and other parts of the Lower Mainland.
We also had an atlas on hand so people could select maps from elsewhere in the world. This was a great conversation starter for stories about places we come from, have visited, of have significance to each of us.
As usual, I was so inspired by the enthusiasm, creativity, and diverse approaches everyone brought to their work!
.One innovative participant even used his teabag as an art material.
Younger visitors are always intrigued by the record player!
Always nice to have a little positive feedback:
