ART IN THE PARK
Art is all about self-expression – and what better way to get in on the fun than to create your own family portrait?
Artists from the Artists in the Boro group will be on hand in Ryall Park on Tuesday, July 12 to lead a Community Art in the Park event.
The event, dubbed Making Funny Faces, is free for all ages and will give people a chance to make their own version of a wacky family portrait, create an impression of a friend or relative, or even make a self-portrait. It runs from 6 to 8 p.m., and kids and adults are all welcome.
“The aim is to have a good time and indulge in some creativity together in a lovely outdoor setting on a summer evening,” said artist Karen Justice in an email.
2nd. Event: Artistic fun at Mask Mania
Local families had a chance to get their hands on art at a Community Art in the Park event in August. Mask Mania was the second of two summer events – following an earlier Making Funny Faces gathering on July 12 – designed to get people out to the park to get involved in an immersive, hands-on, community art-making experience at Ryall Park. The events were spearheaded by local artist Karen Justice, with funding from a Vancouver Foundation Neighbourhood Small Grant, and they drew people of all ages out to get together for some spontaneous artistic fun. Members of the Artists in the Boro group were at the events to lend a hand. About 80 people turned out to the Mask Mania event on Aug. 9. Karen Justice sent along a collection of photos of the artists and their creations. Here’s a sampling of some of the fun.
The sessions are being funded by a Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Vancouver Foundation.- See more at: http://www.newwestrecord.ca/entertainment/lively-city-poetry-in-the-park…
