Lunar New Year Seniors’ Art Showcase (on Thursday, February 9,2017) was an amazing event that featured art and crafts from our fellow senior participants. To get audiences interested and get interactive, comment jars are placed at each table. Spectators were also able to vote for their favorite type of art by placing a coloured dot on the sheets provided at each table.

See below the type of art and descriptions:

GUM DRAWINGS

Gum drawings are made with “drawing gum,” which is a peelable rubber solution for the creation of artworks using ink, watercolour, pencil crayons, as well as varnishes and fixatives.

CANVAS PAINTING

This canvas painting was created by various participants, including adults, youth, and seniors. Each square piece is individually painted by different people and connected together as a puzzle piece showing the Frog Hollow name.

INDIGO TIE DYE SCARVES

White cloths and indigo dye were used in this project. The designs were created with rubber bands, marbles, popsicle sticks, and other objects that give it the effect. Folding and twisting the cloth before placing in the dye will also create unique designs.

MOSAIC TILE ART

The mosaic tile art is made using small tiles and clay. Seniors get creative with various patterns using various tile colours.

CLAY MOULDING

Clay art is used with blocks of slightly wet clay and moulded into shapes and designs. After the clay is dried, the work can be painted for a nice colourful look.

VEGETABLE PAINTING

The flag designs were made using shapes from cut out vegetables, fruits and dab into paint to create fun designs.
