As a young, Black Biracial, Bisexual Woman with Type II Bipolar Disorder from Toronto, Ashley T. has coined herself as the “Bi-Fecta”. She is a multidisciplinary artist who creates within the realms of abstract visual art, literary art, and performance art. She works with diverse materials spanning from acrylic paints on canvas, to ink on paper, to her voice on the mic, to her body on the stage. She uses artto ground and remind herself of the power she possesses to be a positive change in this world. Each piece she creates is a small chapter of her visual memoir.
Out of Frame is a mixed media visual arts workshop where participants learn how to make 3D paintings. The workshop will run for 5 weeks in total over Zoom and each class will be 2 hours in length with a 15 minute break. Each class will increase in detail and complexity, giving the participants the time and space to learn new techniques and apply their knowledge. Each week will result in a differently-themed canvas and subject matter. Using a combination of canvas board, Plaster of Paris, acrylic paints, and more, participants will explore colour, shape, texture, and perspective as their creations figuratively and literally pop out of the frame! Out of Frame requires some dexterity and will include the use of scissors, hot glue, and plaster, so this course is recommended for participants 18 and older. No prior artistic experience necessary, all skill levels are welcome.
*Materials will be provided for pick up. Class limit of 10 participants.
