The Roots of Inspiration with Natasha Jabre
Inspired by the exhibition Face of the Sky, young artists will explore the power of natural lines and forms as they experiment with various creative processes.
Natasha Jabre is a representational painter whose work highlights the strangeness of everyday situations using symbolism and surreal lighting. She received her BFA from Concordia University in Montreal and her MFA from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in North Dartmouth, MA. Her artwork has recently been exhibited in Canada and the United States, as well as internationally in Berlin, Italy, Lebanon and Spain.
This workshop explores the creation of collages and prints that sing through colour choices that contrast, pop and complement each together.

Travel has always been part of her life.
