Rowan Goodfellow is an artist working in a variety of media, with a focus on textile work and printmaking. They are passionate about working with children and youth.
Our full day program schedule consists of daily sketching exercises, 2hr morning and afternoon studio sessions, and various outdoor activities. We believe an important part of the artistic process is having a good mental and physical balance. Each day we will be going outside (weather permitting) to experience our neighbourhood and how it can inspire creativity! Our camp takes place in our ARTiculations Second Floor Studio. In addition to our home base we also use our neighbourhood, frequenting local galleries and parks.
