This past October we had some special guests visit the Headwater's Art Space at the Discovery Center.

Paula Cravens led a demo in gelatin printing for the students from Martin Morigeau Elementary School.


The students made some fabulous prints!


Preparing to do it again!

Most students made several prints and sent some of their prints back to the Headwaters Art Society for a display. Thank you for the beautiful creations!

Students proudly show their prints.

Thank you to Gail Rines and the helpers/staff from Martin Morigeau. We hope to host another student project in the New Year.

3 Hours

9 Artists 

On Sunday, November 3rd, 2013, the Headwater's Art Society hosted a figure drawing session. We had 9 people participate in our drawing exercises that day, led by Paula Cravens. We had a great time and plan to hold another figure drawing session in the new year. Watch for upcoming events on our blogspot and in the Canal Flats Newsletter. Cheers!

The Headwater's Art Society would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Paula Cravens,
who is one of our founding members and who has been an integral part of our group.
Paula has recently moved to Radium Hotsprings, B.C. We wish her luck and hope that she
will visit us whenever she can. Continue to create and inspire Paula! Thank you!

Brought to You by the Columbia Basin Trust

The Headwaters Art Society held a weekend workshop with Graham Flatt the last weekend in September. We had 11 attendees!

We wanted to offer a workshop at an affordable price. We wanted to entice people to come and check out our lovely new art room in the Canal Flats Discovery Centre.

In early 2013, we applied for a program 4A grant to bring in a mentor from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance. The maximum amount you can receive is $2000. We received $1800. This helped us to pay for hall rental, advertising and the cost to pay for and host our instructor. Thank you, CKCA!!

We had a good teacher, great attendees and we got to show off our beautiful, light filled art room that we were able to build with grant funding from the Columbia Basin Trust. Thank you CBT!!

The Headwaters Art Society received great reviews. We hope to offer more workshops and events in the future. Watch this blog!

Papier Colle Femmes reception

Judy Walker and me at the reception for Papier Colle Femmes. There was a fine turnout. The rest of the show was very interesting also. Our third musketeer, Carney Oudendag had to miss the event because she had just moved and was up to her ears busy but she was keenly missed. 

 Judy's awesome album.

 Carney's super suitcase.

  If you can get down to Pynelogs, go have a delicious lunch on the patio and take in the art.

Papier Colle Femmes

Witchy woman    8x10 collage
Inspired by stories on collage collaborations that I kept reading about on Art blogs and “Cloth, Paper, Scissor ” magazine articles, I decided to approach my two favorite collage artists in my area. They are Carney Oudendag and Judy Walker. I suggested that we each make a dozen collages, four of which would be sent to the other participants each and four to keep for ourselves. It was a bit of a wild ride. We didn’t really know what we were doing but we plunged in anyway. I think that may be the best course for most projects. We called ourselves the "Papier Colle Femmes" which translates roughly to women who tear up paper. Grrr!
Our collaborative collage project will be in the Pynelogs Innovations show July 8-21. The reception is Wednesday night July 10 from 7-9 pm. Please join us and find out what a collage collaboration looks like!
