This workshop demonstrates the different ways we can reuse “garbage” and turn it into art! Batoolio will show you how she incorporated found objects into her artwork. Learn new abstract drawing techniques to envision your masterpiece.
Meet the Artist: Batoolio
Batoolio is a self-taught, multi-media, Palestinian-Canadian artist, based in Windsor. Batoolio uses art to communicate feelings that words cannot, resulting in vibrant and layered pieces of work.
