About this event
Natural History Collage Night - Birch bark
Join us for a relaxing evening of creativity and exploration at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History creating collages inspired by the wonders of nature! The evening will be hosted by Brenna Frasier, Curator of Zoology, Roger Lewis, Curator of Mi’kmaq Cultural Heritage, and Rhonda Barrett, collage artist, Cuts and Paste Gallery.
The evening will start off with a short discussion about the ways birch bark has been used my the Mi’kmaq, with an opportunity to examine artifacts from the Ethnology Collection that are made of birch bark. We will then explore some collage techniques and create our own collage works using birch bark.
We'll provide all the necessary materials, however, feel free to bring your own materials too, if you have any specific ideas in mind. Whether you're an experienced artist or just starting out, this event is the perfect chance to explore a unique medium.
Please note that this event is geared toward adult attendees.
