In this hands-on, three-day workshop, participants will explore the acrylic painting medium, and its abilities to create both opaque and transparent results in paintings. We will also look at the use of strong contrast in both colour and tonal value.
All levels are welcome.
Workshop Outline – Acrylic Layering
This acrylic three day workshop will feature one of the techniques I most often use in my studio work. The techniques of laying down multiple layers of transparent and translucent paint – it is one way of working the acrylic paint in your painting to a level of what I think of as “maturity”, that brings a rich depth to the image.
This also is an opportunity to work the edges of shapes – to modify some edges to be passive, and leave other edges quite active.
I will be using the technique in each of the daily demonstrations. Artists with a watercolour background usually see similarities between acrylic layering, and watercolour glazing.

Viewpoints & Voices: Writing Workshop with Carla Harris
Engage with the exhibition, "View from the Edge of the World", and discuss ways the artists challenge Capitalist perspectives. Reimagine the prairie landscape—rich with untold stories and hidden beauty—intertwined with roads, graffiti, and evolving stories and voices.
This workshop provides a safe and inclusive space for writers to explore their personal experiences, engage with diverse perspectives, and unlock creative potential, in whatever writing format is accessible for them. Harris will guide a set of writing exercises, group discussions, and interactive activities as participants delve deep into the intricate tapestry of their own intersectional identities. Participants will be encouraged to express their vulnerabilities and strengths, celebrating the richness and diversity within themselves and the world around them. Whether you are a seasoned writer or just beginning your creative journey, we welcome you to explore creative expressions in the way that works best for you.
