DHC/ART Education invites visitors of all ages and art backgrounds to its bi-annual open house from 1 to 5 PM, Saturday August 22. Join us, along with multi-media artist Moridja Kitenge Banza, in taking part in the painting workshop Real Wax. Designed by Moridja in collaboration with DHC/ART Education, Real Wax challenges participants to create their own hybrid designs in gouache using a piece of real Dutch Wax fabric as a starting point.
Since 2011, DHC/ART Education has invited a local artist, whose work is in keeping with the artist on exhibition, to design a workshop that we can offer to groups who reserve guided visits to the exhibition. The open house is an opportunity to offer this same workshop to the general public in a relaxed, drop-in environment — in the presence of the participating artist.
Additionally, DHC/ART will be offering guided visits of Pièces de résistance by Yinka Shonibare MBE. The guided visit in English will be at 1 PM and the guided visit in French at 2 PM.
Please meet in the lobby at 451 St-Jean Street. No reservation required.
