Drop-in and learn how to transform your feelings into abstract paintings. Taking inspiration from Megan Rooney’s exhibition HUSH SKY MURMUR HOLE, Toronto-based artist Laura Dawe will teach you how to express your emotions through texture and shape, invite attendees to consider the metaphoric aspects of their feelings, and learn a variety of mark-making and colour mixing techniques. Leave with two or three small finished works on paper. All materials will be provided.
Laura Dawe is a multidisciplinary artist whose painting and installation work is frequently exhibited by major Toronto commercial galleries. Recently, she completed a collaborative installation in the Drake Sky Yard and an interactive Tarot performance at /edition International Art Book Fair. Dawe teaches a drawing workshop called Joyful Still Lives from her studio and is a drawing professor at Sheridan College. She holds an MFA from OCADU and a BA in History from Dalhousie University.
