This two day workshop will help breakdown barriers to creativity by introducing new ways of working and some possibly unfamiliar tools. The goal is to work abstractly but may also help representational painters work in a freer way in their usual work.

2 sessions ONLINE. Small class sizes = Limited space
Pre-registration required by calling: 902-843-9464

AGNS: Hooked Rugs, Making Maquettes, New Honorary Governors


STAYING CONNECTED THROUGH ART

Playing with Scale

Carl Zimmerman’s photographs appear to capture the grandiosity of historic architecture. In fact, none of the buildings he photographs exist.

In this latest Studio from Home activity, make an architectural maquette inspired by the buildings Zimmerman created.


Hooked Rugs

Visit The Very Mention of Home and take away your own rug hooking kit.

Shop in person or online for Deanne Fitzpatrick’s beginner kits, including the design inspired by the exhibition.

The Board of Governors for the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has appointed Carol Dodds and Robbie Shaw as Honorary Governors.

“Wild Beach Pea thrives along the sandy edges of pebbled beaches in the Maritimes. This work was inspired in part by old shipwreck stories that describe household objects washed up on the shores of Grand Manan Island. It is easy to imagine fine china, intertwined with seaweed and partially submerged in sand.”
