SAT MAY 14: Artist educator Charlie Star will be leading a fun interactive art activity for the whole family.
Emoji’s are a fun and expressive way to communicate as they symbolize an emotion, word, phrase or figure. Create your own emoji sticker in response to Justin Langlois’ poster series, Decisions, Decisions (two years and counting) in WAHC’s current exhibition, No Exaggerations. This activity expands on the exhibition’s participation by involving the viewer to animate the space with visual language.
SAT JUNE 11: Musician Jupiter Allan will get the whole family rocking in the backyard with their memorable anthems for our Pride themed Second Saturday! Plus take part in our collaborative pride banner painting and button making in WAHC’s beautiful backyard.
SUN JULY 9: Artist educator Annie Webber joins us in the backyard at WAHC to teach us a whimsical way to use up your chalk ends – celestial shaved chalk printing! Spend some time with your community making fun prints, then turn that print into a dust jacket for your own handbook!
Charlie Star is an interdisciplinary artist and educator using intuitive analysis to synthesize ideas and issues into accessible outlets. Charlie works with collage and textiles as she appreciates the elements of texture and patterning. Her interests and practice include multi-media, site-responsive and participatory installations.
Jupiter Allan, in their own words, “definitely DEFINITELY” knows how to lift up a crowd and get them rocking! With their memorable anthems, “Follow the Rainbow,” “Love Is Love Is Love,” “Together Again in My Heart Forever,” and the more-recent “Happened In These Tonee,” they are guaranteed to give audiences a good time with their unique energetic performances and their amazing theatricality!
Annie Webber is an educator and animator living and working in Hamilton. Her works come from environments created and developed for free play. Drawn to animation by the magic of movement, Annie believes in the healing power of creativity, especially through collaboration. Her animated works are almost always handmade, using a light digital touch to stitch together the magical qualities of symbols, tactile materials and nostalgic themes – everything is made with love.
