In this workshop series, participants will explore all five senses with art activities led by Tasneem Dairywala. Beginning with a tutorial on watercolour pencils, participants will create vision boards of the things they like smelling, touching, hearing, and tasting. Participants will have a chance to put the external world on hold and listen to what’s going on inside of themselves. Workshops will equip participants with the skills to express themselves in multiple creative ways in order to enhance emotional and mental wellbeing. Each participant will select one piece for display in a final group exhibition.
‘All Around Us’ is a community-engaged textile art program that will work with 10 self-identified women ages 16+ in the Thorncliffe Park community to learn textile art and embroidery techniques over 8 sessions, culminating in the creation of a collective art piece to be installed at the Toronto Public Library, Thorncliffe Branch in the summer of 2021. The program will use nature as a central theme and encourage participants to explore their own relations with nature while learning and collaborating in a small group environment.
The program will be delivered as 8 online sessions.
