I am passionate about art and art education. I make art daily, primarily painting and drawing. I am resilient, resourceful and can make lesson plans with very little lead time and few materials if need be. I have been teaching since I was 16 years old (bartering drawing lessons for the use of a horse) and never stopped. I love nature and most of my work contains references to humans, animals and nature. Most of my work springs from personal observation either through sketches or my own photos.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

Using recycled materials and cast-offs where possible, I am a huge fan of cross-curricular projects - working across subjects to enrich learning (e.g. ecosystem mural). I can teach online and have facilitated a few workshops on-line. Some ready-made workshops are: mandalas, personal geographies (map-making the artistic way), lantern-making out of recycled materials, printmaking with recycled materials, tessellations inspired by MC Escher (math cross-curricular), zines and hand-made artist books. I can also teach drawing techniques (e.g. fairy tale illustrations), puppet-making, colour theory and almost anything in the visual arts you can do at home. I have worked with seniors, adults, CEGEP students, elementary school as well as secondary school. I have done book-making projects I call Senior memoirs where teens pair with Seniors to co-create a handmade book. I love collaborating and would be very open to taking your idea and making it happen.

One-Day Event Description

With Lisa Kimberly Glickman

In a one-day artist-led workshop, participants immerse themselves in a creative journey celebrating the beauty of the forest through the medium of textile scraps, oil pastels, and acrylic paint. Basic stitching notions will be touched on.

In this workshop, the fusion of artistic guidance, diverse materials, and collaboration transforms a classroom into a space where students both create painted collage art and develop an appreciation for the wonders of nature. Students will use textiles, oil pastels, and acrylics. The workshop unfolds in a carefully curated environment where the artist serves as guide.

The artist uses a PowerPoint to present works by Canadian painters and collage artists and teach students about the forest’s diverse ecosystems, which sets the stage for exploration of artistic expression and nature itself. The artist will bring her own work in to share and have students inspect, hands-on and up close.

Students are introduced to textile scraps. The tactile nature of the media creates a sensory experience, encouraging students to connect with the materials and transform them into art through collage.

Students then discover acrylic paint. They experiment with versatile brush strokes, blending methods, and texture tools to portray the play of light in the forest. Students are encouraged to embrace spontaneity, fostering an atmosphere where mistakes are seen as an opportunity to grow.

Lastly, they explore oil pastels. They learn to capture the hues of the forest by using blending techniques and colour layering. The artist provides tips to create depth and dimension, empowering students to show the rich environment on canvas.

This workshop is inspired by Glickman’s work and aligns with her approach of using textiles and mixed media in landscapes and integrating upcycled or foraged items. Driven by passion for the natural world, she wants to inspire young artists to see the beauty and sustainability of nature.
