Collage Party: Exquisite Corpse with Sandeep Johal

  • Art Making Activity
  • Workshop
  • March 11, 2023

    Session is currently full, but it is highly recommended to join the waitlist as we often experience “no-shows” at free events.  Join waitlist via the registration link above.

    Using figurative imagery inspired by the Richmond Art Gallery’s current exhibitions, participants are invited to play the Surrealist game of Exquisite Corpse where each participant creates a section of a figure for a collaborative artwork.  Draw, cut and paste while you chat, listen to music, and experiment with simple art materials.

    Guest artist Sandeep Johal will lead a visual presentation of her drawing and collage techniques, followed by a hands-on collaborative art-making session of the Exquisite Corpse game. This art game requires each participant to take turns drawing and collaging a section of a figure on a sheet of paper, folding it to conceal their contribution, and then passing it to the next player for a further contribution.

    Sandeep will provide samples and demonstrations on how to use layers of colour and patterns with cut and ripped posters, decorative papers and fabrics to develop unique figures and characters with drawing and collage.

    All materials will be provided. Join in the fun!

    REGISTRATION REQUIRED due to very limited seating.
    Participants are encouraged to arrive on time to ensure their spot.

    Free admission for ages 16+.
    All collage materials and tools provided.  Open to creatives of all skill levels.

    About the Guest Artist:
    Sandeep Johal is a Canadian visual artist whose practice engages drawing, collage, textiles, and large-scale murals. Through her Indo-folk feminine aesthetic, she confronts themes of bleakness, despair and ugliness with their dissonant opposites: brightness, hope and beauty. Johal’s work typically centers around the stories of women and while she highlights female suffering in its many forms, these are ultimately stories of resistance and resilience.
