Members were introduced to a multi-layered process during this fun and imaginative abstract creative writing workshop led by Brock University Professor Catherine Parayre.
We began with creating light, watery lines on our papers using acrylic paints and a lot of water. We then wandered through the exhibits at Rodman Hall and explored a flash writing exercise- writing poetic snapshots of what we see, hear, feel etc. Next was the editing process, and onto carefully filling in the blank spaces with our words. Final steps had members layering makers and ink on top of paint to add depth, shadow, and interest.
These works and more will be on display at Mahtay Cafe starting February 28th 2 pm. Thank you to Danny Custodio and all the staff at Rodman Hall Art Centre for opening the exhibit Always Vessels to The Willow Community members. Belong Empower Create ~ Shauna MacLeod
