experimenting with some simple natural pigments, pouring and spraying

Lately, our neighbourhood has been decorated with something like Earth Art crossed with graffiti crossed with scenes from an herbalist’s laboratory. We have been practicing and experimenting with “Snow Painting”: using herbs and vegetables as dyes to apply to snow and ice.

practice pouring, seeing what the colours will do

 As part of an artistic process (similar to dyeing fibres, mixing paints from scratch, or crafting makeup) non-toxic Snow Painting is fun, always has an element of unpredictability, and maintains many factors that can affect the final effect.

Join us in these curious experiments at Nuit Blanche, this Saturday 26th from 3pm to about 9pm, in the Griffintown Cultural Corridor (956 Ottawa, and 141 Ann) in Montreal.

red cabbage is like magic... see us to believe it

Having practiced and experimented with our new craft, we are confident that our collaborative effort will yield a beautiful “painting” in the snow for all to enjoy. We will also have a community-participatory location, in which people can try some Snow Painting for themselves.

We are on the free shuttle bus, (Wellington and Ann) so add us to your list of fun things to see that eve!
