SHIFT: Pop Up Experiments
Thursdays, May 10, 17, 24 and 31

SHIFT is a series of Pop Up art classes developed by artist / musician Nadïne LaFond presented in select communities, featuring a rotating range of visual arts media and concentrating on total experimentation for the purpose of empowering expression.

Beyond skills sharing, the focus is using visual arts as a vital form of personal expression. With 4 weekly classes, each featuring a particular medium and each session building upon the next, the Pop Ups are perfect for mixing studious investigation and fun creative exploration.

Each series highlights a teaching artists collaboration and concentrates on a particular theme to be de-constructed then fully realized together with students in class.
