The McMichael Canadian Art Collection and City of Vaughan Recreation & Culture
cordially invite you to celebrate:
on Sunday, February 17, 2013
at 12:30 p.m.
During fall 2012, the McMichael designed an accessible art program led by a professional instructor that is inclusive for individual abilities. Inspired by A.Y. Jackson’s painting, Bent Pine, four art workshops were incorporated in the November 2012 session of Vaughan Recreation and Culture’s Connect program for children living with special needs. Based on exploration of texturized landscape reproductions, small acrylic copies and natural materials such as pine needles and tree bark, the participants offered their own personal interpretation of the subject in a three-dimensional collage medium.
A true sensory experience of painting and modelling, Land Connections is not only a celebration of definitive Canadian art, but the creative abilities of its participants and fulfilling artistic process.
The exhibition will be on view at the McMichael in the Founders’ Lounge from February 2 to 24, 2013.
