My latest project in the Creative Age Art Studio is Creative Art Journaling with words and images.
We have a small group who are exploring the use of different resources – instructional books, videos, supplies, materials and techniques in their art journals. The technique shown here (below left) is called mixed media using paint, paper collage and I’ll add found objects for another layer of visual interest. Words are added to prompt or record creative ideas and inspiration.
The art group has also started interior mural panels (shown below right) and it’s all part of the programs we’re able to organize with funding support from New Horizons for Seniors. The Creative Age Art Studio and Gallery is located in the Municipality of Thames Centre at the Dorchester Community Centre.
