To approach painting using the Wabi Sabi aesthetic means to honor and appreciate rough textures, natural materials, and subtle hues. This year I had a great group of students and we started out the class by exploring the back alleys of Nakusp in search of inspiration, and then took our photos and found objects to the classroom to create beautiful and surprising works. Students learned new arrangement and composition skills, and explored glazing, scumbling, antique effects and worked with textural acrylic mediums. The class is so much fun because we share our ideas and struggles, and learn a great deal from each other. The Wabi Sabi way of expressing beauty within the imperfections of life is so good for the artistic soul!
