About the Workshop

Using the inspirations that surround the students they will create works through the lens of various art movements throughout history. Inviting play, exploration, and new discoveries. Together we will explore the habits and phases of some of the great visual artists that paved the way for a more modern understanding of colour schemes, historical movements, and the internal process of the individual artist in question. Every week we explore a new artist and the things that made them relevant in the canon of fine art.

Shyrina Rose

Shyrina Rose is an interdisciplinary artist exploring themes of play, nature, and irregularity through her work. She embraces whimsy and draws inspiration from nature and the beautifully intricate qualities hidden all around us. Through her sculptural works she creates experiences akin to those experienced in nature. Wishing one would be small enough to sleep inside an acorn or find a home inside of a tree stump. Shyrina began her fine arts at the University of Alberta before attending the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design where she received her Bachelor of fine arts degree.
