Want to create art with your child? Let Verna Vogel walk you through her explorative and creative process!

The just turn your head a little exhibition is about perception and memory. This workshop is about accessing perception and memory to explore and create artworks.

Participants will engage in perception exercises and discussion both inside the gallery and during an exploratory walk though the LAC grounds. Then, using ink with twigs, grasses etc., Verna will demonstrate some of the processes and techniques she has developed for creating visual images with these materials.

Serendipity is a big factor in this workshop. Working on several large- and small-scale surfaces, participants will learn to guide and respond to their materials through the use of ink washes, line quality and wet / dry techniques to create a range of effects. The qualities of transparency, opacity, absorbency and surface texture of various papers will be explored.

Participants can expect to have created at least one finished artwork, and several mark-making grounds which they may build on at a later time.

Audience: This workshop is suitable for adults and children over 7. Each child should be accompanied by an adult (1:1), please. Adults who are happy to be in the same environment as children are welcome to attend without a child.
