While schools and childcare centres were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I began offering art classes and workshops at home, through both SkyBlue Studio and VIBE Arts.
Art lessons were conducted over Zoom, and covered a wide variety of painting, drawing, and mixed media activities for children. 3 weeks of a virtual summer camp were offered to SkyBlue Studio families in July.
VIBE Arts began a series of PWYC at-home virtual workshops called VIBE Bloom. During my nine weeks as lead artist for VIBE Bloom, I lead art workshops using easily accessible materials, including: black and white sharpie drawings, watercolours with markers, intro to cartoon portraiture, blackout poetry, and painting with coffee grounds. Workshops were attended by both children and adults.
In addition to the PWYC events, private session can be booked through a donation to VIBE Arts. Lean more here.
During the lockdown, SkyBlue Studio also offered art boxes containing supplies & step-by-step instructions for our students to create art at home. The following are samples from two such lesson plans.
