WORKSHOP : Let Your Photos Do the Talking

Photo and correspondence workshop, led by artist-photographer and poet Évangéline LeBlanc

Would you like to transform your creativity as a photographer or writer into a work of art that blends everything together freely? This workshop is for you!

During this activity, you’ll be able to create special, one-of-a-kind cards signed by you, featuring your photos and a short inspirational text, and then send them to someone important to you, or simply create a card for the future.

Starting with your choice of 3 to 4 meaningful photos, you’ll discover original ways of using them and making them speak for themselves. These photos can be taken with a phone or camera and printed on a maximum paper size of 4 x 6 inches. They will be used to inspire a short text to crystallize your memories or for a possible correspondence.

Throughout the workshop, Évangéline will help you – through exercises – to write your texts. She’ll guide you in dressing, coloring and wrapping your photos and texts with different materials.

In the form of playful, colorful crafts, you’ll be able to express the impulses of your heart with different materials (paper). If desired, your final project – in a sealed, stamped envelope – can be sent by post.

ACM will provide the materials, e.g. cards, drawing materials, colored pencils, different types of paper. If you wish to create on a larger format or paper of your choice, feel free to bring your own materials.

Date: Sunday, August 11 2 to 4 p.m.
Location: Public Farmers’ market, North Hatley
Materials provided by ACM
Material to be supplied by participants: 3 to 4 printed photos in 4 x 6 inch format
Cost: $10 non-members, $7 ART-Lié 2024-25 members
