New creative workshops – Honors
September 11, 18 and 25 and November 13, 20 and 27, 2018
Folie/Culture is offering three half-day workshops hosted and directed by artist Josée Landry-Sirois and art historian Jeanne Couture. These workshops will be available to visitors at four different mental health facilities in the Quebec City region, including l’Amarrage and the Centre de parrainage civique de Québec. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a truly creative experience using a range of media: drawing, stamping, writing, collage, and weaving. They will be able to express themselves freely and to conduct practical experiments on the theme of pride. Later, they will be invited to share what gives them pride and to work on the idea of succeeding by creating a final image on paper or cardboard. The participants’ illustrations will then be rendered as a medal using a 3D printer. All works completed during the workshops will be displayed at a public exhibition.
