A creative opportunity for the youth of Aurora! A two-part workshop plus a mini exhibition opportunity, this workshop provides participants with an overview of Troy Hourie’s creative process as an artist. Students would be introduced to intermedia; the immersion of the body into an active interaction between space, visuals and technology and how this is achieved in Apparitions. They will be challenged to reflect on their own interpretations of fear, nightmares, dreams, haunted houses, ghosts and sorrow by researching visuals that represent each of these ideas for them. Troy Hourie will guide students through his creative methods with a practical experience creating their own intermedial art project. The project will take place over two Saturdays to provide students time to explore artist techniques under supervision but also time to evolve their ideas out of the workshops. Final art pieces will be displayed on Saturday November 10, 2018 in a mini-exhibition.
