Top 5 things to do in Montreal this month
Bring your drawings to life
The Happening | Gothic Kitsch | Phi Centre | March 19, starting at 2 p.m.
Want to add a new dimension to your sketches … literally? No problem! Visit the Phi Centre this weekend and learn how to use 3D pens. As part of the Gothic Kitsch workshop you can use these neat tools to create and decorate different structures alongside local artist and Concordia grad Karen Tam (BFA 00).
La Guirlande du 375 | 375e anniversaire de Montreal | Centre Cultural Georges-Vanier | Mondays and Tuesdays
The Georges-Vanier Cultural Centre is hosting regular painting and canvas printing workshops. The idea is to encourage Montreal residents to participate in a massive collective art project that will produce a 1,400-metre-long garland. The final product will be hung in the city’s southwest neighbourhood during a later vernissage in celebration of Montreal’s 375 birthday.
