Working For Free

working for free illustration by Alison Garwood-Jones

Building your castle on someone else’s land is deceptively simple and attractive … until the landlord changes the terms on you.

Etsy sellers are facing a 30% hike in their transaction fees.

The plugins exist to go out on your own.

Sure, it will take time, but what you get back in pride and ownership is priceless.

Art Classes: Cocoa & Paint

March 25, 2022

Cocoa and Paint

Jamii is hosting a series of FREE “Cocoa and Paint” workshops for people of ALL ages in our community.

March 30 – April 6 – April 13, 2022 (3 evenings) from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. At the St. Lawrence Community Centre

Funded by Rama Gaming House

As a group, alongside artist Alison Garwood-Jones, we will be painting the same image individually as a group while enjoying a cup of hot cocoa. Alison will go through a step-by-step process on how to paint the chosen image. This will allow participants to learn new painting skills, while also putting those skills to practice in real-time! The paintings will be an urban scene, a floral painting, and lastly a portrait which is all beginner-friendly.

The sessions will also include a healing element as we will explore and express emotions through being intentional with our choice of colours, brush strokes, and technique in addition to our group discussions.

Alison Garwood-Jones is a Toronto illustrator and writer who makes art because it lifts her spirits and changes her sense of what’s possible. It’s a message she likes to share with others.

Participants have the option to either commit to all three paint nights or just attend one.
The workshops will be on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm on March 30th, April 6th, and April 13th, 2022, at the St. Lawrence Community Center.

FREE – No previous painting experience needed.

How I travel

February 22, 2022

I drew this Italian hillside town with a waterproof Uniball Vision Pen. I dabbed on colour with a small water brush, and a Cotman travel watercolour set. It’s my first time trying a Talens sketchbook (The Netherlands).
