We have two amazing workshop series coming up! Looking to expand your creative horizons? Look no further!
Creative Collaborative Workshop with Billy Mavreas - Summer Session
For adults of all ages
Sundays June 14, 21, 28 and July 5
6:30 to 8:30 pm
$60 for whole session. The fee covers all supplies.
During this 4-week course, work with Billy Mavreas in a collaborative round table process of art creation. Mavreas will guide a small group of adults through a journey that will investigate the accidental, and explore and challenge concepts that art is only for artists. Each session will involve a few hours drawing, looking and re-looking using the most basic of materials. With Mavreas as a creative, engaging and accessible guide and facilitator, find yourself opening up to the possibilities of your own inner creative talents. Non-artists and those who have given up on making stuff (but always secretly loved doing so) especially encouraged to sign up.
Billy Mavreas is a Canadian cartoonist and artist living in Montreal, Quebec, whose mostly silent or wordless comics revolve around the themes of language, sexuality and spirituality. He is the co-founder of Expozine, one of Canada's largest and most well respected Zine Fairs, as well as the curator and resident-at-large of Monastiraki, a shop and gallery of wonders in Mile End. Mavreas' passionate and enchanting childlike sense of wonder and play has positioned him as a community conduit within many arenas for years now. His creative enthusiasm and relaxed, open nature make him the perfect person to help unlock the artistic potential in others.
