Join us for Self Love, Self care this Valentines Day, Galentines Day or whatever you are calling it. Wash away some of the Winter blahs and Covid worries with some colour today. Join LAMP’s FREE new art escape session on Zoom through colour and you don’t need art skills to have some fun with us. We’ll make inspirational cards to ourselves with messages of Love, Caring, Encouragement, and Self-Love to use when needed. You will have a chance to make meaningful artwork from the heart, no matter what your skill level is. Actually, the less you know about drawing, the better. Colour crayons and markers work great. You will also need a few sheets of paper for each session. Bio: Natalie V. Bochenska (Natalie Very B.) is a Polish-Canadian illustrator, muralist, and educator. She is currently focusing on her thesis to conclude her studies at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute (TATI) in pursuit of a graduate diploma in Art Therapy. Having grown up in a country with a strong patriarchal regime and an obvious system of inequality, she strives to use her art to educate people about the importance of anti-oppressive practices. Her bold and bright murals depicting the themes or nature and modern female empowerment can be found all across Ontario. She makes public art with the goal of changing preconceived notions of feminism by promoting self-love and body neutrality in the world. She painted her first mural at the OCAD building in 2015 and has fallen in love with working large scale ever since. Achieving community health and wellness together!
