Make Your Own Pigments: A Workshop

Date & time
Tuesday, May 5, 2020
12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

This event is free






Is a lack of art supplies keeping you from getting creative at home? Did you know that you can make your own pigments out of compost? Your own ink out of grocery items? In this workshop, Montreal artist and Concordia student Liza Isakov will show you how to make ink from blueberries, with the help of only a few common household items. A live drawing tutorial with homemade pigments will follow!

Isakov is an emerging artist creating works on paper. Her practice draws inspiration from everyday objects and observations, collecting items, imagery, and memories to create an image that portrays her way of documentation. Have questions on this topic that you want to get to our workshop facilitator ahead of time? Send them to

What You’ll Need: a pot/saucepan; a fork; a jar; filters or sifters; salt; white vinegar; and blueberries, of course!

Liza Isakov (Workshop Facilitator), Montreal artist; BFA Candidate in Studio Arts

Chloë Lalonde (Moderator), 4TH SPACE staff member, B.A. Candidate in Art Education and Anthropology
