An evening of artmaking for adults interested in exploring creativity and developing skills in a variety of techniques. All skill levels are welcome.
In November and December: Katrina Slade
Katrina Slade is an artist working primarily in mixed media painting. Originally from Oregon, she is a third generation artist with a lifelong passion for creativity. Slade earned a BFA from Oregon State University, followed by a Master’s degree in Teaching. Her abstract work is typically inspired by concepts related to her affinity for mindfulness and emotion. Slade’s evolving style is influenced by her international experiences and world travel. After spending seven years living and traveling abroad, she immigrated to Canada in 2018, and currently lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
Journey into the mind of the artist through the exploration of the formal elements of art. Katrina will guide students through lessons on the elements of art using both wet and dry media in a variety of creative lessons. Students can expect to do it all: perspective drawing, collage, watercolours, and more. Lessons are not only explorations in media, but also analyzing how artists see the world and use visual tricks to best convey their messages. Each lesson is a mini course on one of the elements of art using the rich collection of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery as a primary source. Learn how to analyze art while being creative!
