Beyond the Brush– available April 24 thru June 27

Gallery: Abstract artists take risks, challenge themselves and find new ways of using materials. In AbNext and Abstraction: Rebel Cause we use engaging hands-on in-gallery activities that inspire us to see ourselves as creative artists.

Painting Studio: We are exploring the wild and the wonderful! Using various tools and techniques, we will create expressive colourful self-portraits, rich in texture, while using a wide array of traditional and non-traditional art materials.

Sculpture Studio: Inspired by hard-edge abstraction, we will work with large, geometric forms, while using collage and mixed media, to design and build an impressive sculpture that can be transformed and manipulated countless ways.
