PatternNation Imagination Exploration
6 week visual and wearable art course for youth ages 8-15
made possible by the support of ArtStarts in Schools and Opus Art Supplies
Oct 10th - Nov 17th 2018 Every Wednesday from 4-7pm
excluding Oct 31st Gallery Show Nov 17th 2-8pm
Location: Arts Starts 808 Richards St Vancouver
Paint a mural panel:
Each student will paint a 4 foot by 4 foot ply wood mural panel with their own unique pattern design. We will workshop painting and pattern making techniques. The youth will have the option of keeping their painting after it is showcased in the gallery show and photoshoot.
Create a wearable art piece:
One of the ways we explore the imagination is by creating a wearable art/ fashion piece with the youth. They will be taught how to paint, upcycle and reinvent garments to create their own unique sustainable look. The students will complete a photoshoot and runway show in the look they create.
Gallery Show on November 17th
All of the students will participate in a photoshoot showcasing their wearable art piece in front of their mural panel. We will work with professional photographer Maggie Macpherson to create the highest quality images that will be showcased during the gallery alongside the student’s mural panels. The Youth will take home the high-quality print from this shoot after the show closes.
During the Gallery show imagination exploration students will walk or dance their wearable art piece down the runway for their friends and family to see. We will be working with professional dancer and runway coach Kevin Fraser to give the kids the confidence and direction they will need to showcase their new designs with style.
PatternNation interactive play sculptures aka blobs will be installed for the youth and their communities to enjoy during the gallery show. Blobs are made from upcycled fabric, filled with balloon and fun for people of all ages to play in.

F-O-R-M’s Commissioning Fund is an exciting program offered by the festival for emerging artists. This year, we are delighted to have commissioned 6 new movement films from artists across Canada between the ages of 19-31. Each artist received up to $2000, equipment credit and access to the facility at Cineworks in Vancouver and Charles St. Video in Toronto. These resources all went towards the creation of brand new movement films to be screened and premiered on Saturday, September 15th.
This years artists are working towards some very exciting movement ideas and concepts that involve seeing movement through music, fashion and mirrors and speak to issues of race, gender, identity, age and decolonization.
Our commissioned artists include: Francesca Chudnoff (Toronto), Jennifer Su (Toronto), Eric Cheung and Alimzhan Sabir (Calgary), Roxanne Nesbitt (Vancouver), Cydney Eva Paddon of PatternNation (Vancouver/Durban), Elizabeth Armitage and Aidan Chin (Vancouver).
We are thrilled to present these six new films to you. Thank you and congratulations to everyone for making these films a reality, and for being a part of our third F-O-R-M Commissioning Fund Program!
After an inspiring weekend of movement films, we hope you can join us at Left of Main to converse, celebrate and dance with F-O-R-M's artists, producers, audiences and volunteers of the festival!

Pattern Nation is a collaborative and inclusive platform aimed at connecting artists who embrace bold colour and pattern globally. PatternNation was founded by Vancouver Canada based artist and fashion designer Cydney Eva. PatternNation collaborations engage with many indigenous and radical thinking artists globally. As an act of decolonization through art PatternNation shoots, events, video's and clothing aim to create conversation around identity politics. Part of the platforms mandate is to create more space for inter-generational women and people of colour in fashion and to facilitate cross cultural sharing through art. The aim of PatternNation is to work directly with artists from various backgrounds and create content that subverts the usual consumption of Caucasian minimalist work in the art and fashion worlds.

Inspired by the 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage, in which the voyagers travel inside of the human body. This exploration in space, pattern and self expression aims to create another world of creativity that consumes the room. Self reflection, connection, surrealism, fun, play and interaction are all elements that have brought together this group of artists from Joburg, Durban, and Vancouver. Assemblage artist in resident Cydney Eva founder of PatternNation aims to create a truly collabor...ative performative night that breaks away from conventional art functions and allows us to laugh, dance, observe, play and groove together. This voyage will consist of 3 experimental hip hop and RnB performances happening in different parts of the gallery space. DJ owabowa will hold down the night with a mixture of base music, feminist/queer rap, house and hip hop. There will also be a small pop up shop of PatternNation painted and silkscreened clothing, PatternNation rope jewelry and the collaborative zines made in the workshop with alphabet zoo.
