with Tara Hayden
We live in a world where our access to information, art supplies and so much more is immediate and at times overwhelming! For example, we have many photos on our phone but do very little with them. Sometimes, we even have difficulty making decisions about which ones to delete! As well, many of us have a great deal of calligraphic and art/craft supplies lying around our homes, offices and studios. That too, can become overwhelming and can stop us from actually doing art! Not to mention how our limited time can influence if and when we actually sit down to be creative!

The premise of this class is to impose some limits on time, supplies and colour in order to become 'LIMITLESS' in what kind of art we can produce and how creative we can be. This process may help you to unlock some creativity and produce some mixed media art. We will be working quite small, and using tools easily found around your art studio and home, and acrylic paints. Mark making, art journaling and calligraphic marks, letters and words will be used to enhance and deepen our exploration
