A creative expression of a different kind ... Art WITH Nature.
Join Barb Fedun in a meditative, creative and enlightening journey through the Leighton Art Centre’s glorious Foothills location. This day will be mainly outside on the beautiful Leighton Centre property and co-creating with Great Mother! – finding whatever presents itself to us as we wander the land. This is a wonderful way of honouring nature by reflecting back to her the beauty we see. We will collect found objects and create ‘Earth Art’. We will also make our own containers of creativity to take home so you can continue your Earth Art expression.
Please dress for the weather and bring a picnic-style lunch.

Growing up in the west coast rain forest shaped my appreciation for nature's beauty. Living in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains fuels my passion for outdoor pursuits. I enthusiastically cross country ski, ride my road bike, fat bike and cross bike, challenge myself mountain biking and love hiking. Yoga and meditation creates balance and brings stillness and silence helping me align with the creative impulse. My job as an artist is to be in the moment and pay attention to images that tell me they need to unfold. Music and spontaneous dancing in the studio help release emotion onto my canvas creating an expressive image.
Barb works full time in her home studio and takes painting workshops periodically. Painting from within, her work is somewhat abstract yet still recognizable by the viewer. She is influenced by the Alberta landscape, especially the light playing over the fields, foothills and mountains.
