Collage Party: Cut and Paste Landscapes with Crissy Arseneau

  • Art Making Activity
  • Saturday, January 14, 2023

    1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    Above: Crissy Arseneau, Fold and Fault 5, watercolour collage on paper.

    Start off 2023 with a social, non-judgemental art-making event for adults. Using imagery inspired by the Derek Liddington exhibition, participants cut and paste old magazines, painted papers and posters while you decompress, chat and listen to music at our collage social for ages 16+. Collage Party is suitable for all artistic skill levels, and is a great way to socialize with friends and make some art!

    Guest artist Crissy Arseneau will lead a visual presentation of her collage techniques, followed by a hands-on collage making session inspired by the Liddington exhibition. We’ll dig into a myriad of materials to create dimensional collages, cutting and pasting our way to expressive mixed media pieces capturing the feeling of a landscape.

    All supplies provided, open to ages 16+ of all artistic skill levels.

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

    About the Artist:

    Born in Quesnel, British Columbia, Crissy Arseneau is a Canadian artist who lives and works in Vancouver. Working primarily in hand-painted and hand-cut paper, her pieced paintings and paper sculpture explore attention and contemplation, time and place, and our relationship to the natural environment. She has been featured by The Jealous Curator, the Georgia Straight and Kolaj Magazine. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and alternative art spaces in British Columbia, including the Vancouver Airport, with pieces held in private collections in Canada, the US, and the UK.  To see more of her work, visit crissyarseneau.com
