This is a FREE workshop. We would like to thank our generous sponsor The Salt Spring Island Foundation of Youth.
This workshop will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Students must register and commit to all 4 classes.
The workshop will introduce students to mural painting and the process of creating large scale works with a group. Cam will guide the group with dialogue to find a theme or an idea that they all agree on and will expand into a variety of techniques that will help in the execution of the large scale work. He will act as a curator to find the strengths of each individual and empower each student to find their own voice to add to the project.
The collective creative process is effective tool for bridging dialogue about important issues and this workshop is a tool to instigate positive dialogue amoungst teens that deserve a positive outlet for expression. This workshop will act as a means of introducing youth on this island to a mural painting and the power of public art to tackle issues affecting their community. Students will learn some art history and relevant information about street art and mural history. The majority of the workshop will be focused on the creative process and techniques.
