ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Experiment with India ink to create galaxy-inspired art!
India ink is a highly pigmented medium that can create fabulous textures on watercolour paper to become a magical background for unique intergalactic artwork. Learn about creative techniques such as egg drop, bloom, bleed, wet-on-wet, and more to create your unique cosmic landscape filled with stars, constellations, and faraway galaxies. No art experience necessary!
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR: NATALIE VERY B.
Natalie Very B. is a published award winning illustrator of Polish-Canadian decent. As an immigrant artist she often explores the concept of “home”, and the sense of wistful longing and nostalgia that it brings out in her work. Her childhood experience became a strong incentive for her to make illustrations that depict women as beautiful, empowered, and strong. Her current work is devoted to the investigation of whimsical shapes of feminism in today’s world.
