HSTA Welcomes Area High School for Silk Screening and Landscape Painting

May 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

A group of eager high school students made the beautiful journey to us yesterday to explore the craft of silk-screening and landscape painting.

Fibre artist, Elisha Barlow, took the students through the amazing process of creating screens, using a light table, rinsing, squeegee-ing, and stenciling. Many of the students wore their amazing pieces home at the end of the day!

The other half of the group enjoyed an all-day landscape drawing & painting workshop, led by Matt Mancini (soon to be this week’s Artist of the Week). Practice in the morning with pencil and paper was followed up by applying acrylic to canvas after lunch resulting in some truly beautiful creations.

Once again, the Haliburton School of The Arts played host to another high school – this one from the GTA.

They pioneered our first soapstone carving workshop with Kim Warne of Soundings Studio, and explored the techniques of felting, both wet and dry.

Have a browse through the gallery to see the abounding creativity these students brought to the table…
