Come get inspired by Joy with us! Create work of art inspired by artists in the 2021 Winter Festival of Art: Finding Joy exhibition.
In this video, we will be exploring three-dimensional cardboard collages, inspired by Desiree Watson's work Gold Upon Grieving, and showing how you can get a similar effect from Desiree's plywood-based art with cardboard.
The Winter Festival of Art is an annual exhibition held by the Art Gallery of Algoma, inviting gallery members to submit works of art inspired by different themes each year. In 2021 The Art Gallery of Algoma invited participating artists to talk about their works to inspire students grades 4-8, in the Algoma District, to create their own works of art inspired by Finding Joy.
