Art Party Workshop with Beat the Street

5.jpgclass paying attention

On Tuesday, July 24th, Beat the Street’s Literacy and Basic Skills Program played with paint and colour while learning about art and Canadian art history. The event was a fun, experimental process delivered by Aisling McKeown. The class began with an introduction into art fundamentals, followed by a brief introduction to The Group of Seven, who were famous for their Canadian landscapes, and the feature painting: "Mirror Lake", by Franklin Carmichael.


The class was about two hours long, and the pace was easy going, guided by step-by-step instructions suitable to all skill levels. At the end of the class, the participants took home their very own version of Mirror Lake!  

Aisling is a painter and teacher formally trained at OCAD University for painting and drawing. Her classes, however, are far from formal! Her focus is always about creating a fun, creative atmosphere.
Thank you, Aisling for providing this workshop and everyone who participated in it!
