A brand new class that I’ll be teaching this fall for those 50+ is ‘Stories to Tell: Visual Storytelling for Seniors’ @ Port Moody Arts Centre, Port Moody BC. It will be held on Tuesdays, September 30th to November 4th from 10 AM to 12 PM and then again on Saturdays, November 8th to December 13th from 10 AM to 12 PM. The idea is to bring bring a treasured object to the class (photo, letter, trinket) and then bring out the story behind the object through an art technique (drawing, watercolour, assemblage, collage …) The participants and their treasures will determine which techniques we will cover in the class. My example shown here is a triptych collage that opens up and also has pictures on the back as well. To register contact pomoarts.ca or 604.931.2008.
