The Shadow Shop

Saturday, December 8
3:30-6:30pm | The Box Studio | $45

A three hour crash course in overhead projector art for the stage for those interested in design-based storytelling. We’ll bring our projectors and our collection of treasures— you bring your imagination! Together we will explore how imagery can spark and drive narratives as well as serve existing ones. Participants will generate new material as well as have the option of bringing in their own work. All material will be collaboratively staged.

We will experiment with the following tools:

  • Found objects

  • Wet matter: water, dye, soaps, and food.

  • Transparencies (images printed on transparent paper)

  • Framing

  • Negative space

  • Focus and depth of perspective

Friday December 7 and Saturday December 8

Challenge yourself to work collaboratively and think outside the box! This creative lab provides participants with the studio space and tools to explore new ways of generating work. Augusto Bitter and Claren Grosz (Persephone, CHICHO) will lead participants through pair, group and solo exercises to build an interdisciplinary piece of their own devising. Both text-based and physical approaches will be used, so get ready to move and write! For the curious and trepidatious as well as the experienced and bold, creative souls of all disciplines/backgrounds are welcome— no experience required!

 

No one turned away from lack of funds.

Past Workshops

Women's Collective Creation Intensive

2017 Intensive shot by Sydney Herauf

The Women’s Collective Creation Intensive is a peer-led workshop that provides a safe space for emerging women artists to connect and collaborate, fostering an environment of support rather than competition. Participants had the opportunity to create new devised work, perform, and connect with established Toronto professionals.
