You will take away a delightful, finished project, with prompts to continue your personal journey."

Cyanotype Printmaking Sunday Oct 24, 10am-12pm

Learn a new and fun way to do a printmaking with nature and sunlight! Join talented art instructor Shandelle McCurdie. Open to all ages. We will be working indoors and outdoors in the beautiful gardens and groomed lawns of the Artfest Studio in Nottawa, ON. Using natural plant materials, you will create a delightful print with rich indigo hues.

Shandelle Page McCurdie is an artist and facilitator living near the shores of Wasaga Beach. She studied at Sheridan College and now runs a creative business from her home studio where she paints original and commissioned artwork. Her primary medium is acrylic on canvas but she enjoys exploring and teaching with a variety of mediums. She facilitates workshops for aspiring artists and has begun to expand her portfolio with community mural work in Georgian Bay.

You can see more of her work on Instagram @herpaintedpage or her website
