CREATIVE MOMENTS: MARKED BY TIME
This workshop, inspired by Quebec artist Laurence Veri’s ceramic artworks, will incite you to create under the theme of the passing of time. By modeling shapes and textures that recall the natural world, you will intuitively explore the characteristics of various materials. Mysterious and fantastical, your compositions will give free reign to interpretation.
A workshop inspired by artworks from the MAC’s collection.
Tuesday 30 May 2023, 2022, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. or Wednesday 31 May 2023, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
CREATIVE MOMENTS: POINT TO THE SKY
Quebecois artist Ivanhoë Fortier’s Tour sublunaire, 1965, is a sculpture created with intertwining, cut-out steel pieces.

CREATIVE MOMENTS: BLANK PAGE ON BLACK BACKGROUND
Step out of your bubble and take part in an adventure where humour and sarcasm collide. Influenced by the world of comics, you will discover an artwork by artist Walter Scott in which the trials and tribulations that artists may face are cynically addressed. During the workshop, we will share tips and strategies for drawing and scripting an illustrated story that make you think outside the box.

CREATIVE MOMENTS: SQUARES IN STEREO
Two newly commissioned video installations by Montréal artist Nelson Henricks will spark our discussions and creative explorations. In addition to the exhibition, a selection of 15 Screen Tests created by Andy Warhol between 1964 and 1966 will also serve as a source of inspiration. During these two workshops, various themes will be addressed: the perception of colour and sound, musicality and different subjects taken from art history.
