Expressions  – Half Day Program – available April 26 thru June 27

Gallery:  This gallery visit enables students to look at and explore abstract art as a reaction to social cues and historical events. We examine relationships to colour, perceptions and feelings associated with colour and how artist use colour to evoke feelings, ideas and sensations.

Print Studio: Inspired by abstract expressionism, we discover the limitless possibilities for printmaking using gelli-plate printing techniques. Each print becomes a one-of-a-kind exploration of colour, texture and composition.
