The Carnival Curious Poster Making Workshop invites participants to embrace their Caribbean heritage and celebrate it loudly and proudly by creating posters with vibrant colours and mixed media materials.
The workshop will provide a variety of poster boards, cardstock, foil paper, feathers, gemstones, and more for participants of all ages to use to capture what Carnival means to them.
The workshop is located in the Lower Level of Yorkdale Mall, in the Art Starts studio. Locate Old Navy within the Mall and take the elevator across from it down to 'LL'. You'll find the Art Starts studio to the right and through the glass doors.
About the instructor, Ashley T:
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 art to 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 memoire.
