Collaborate with local artists and create a community project at the Clayton Community Centre.

Moving Through Stories

Meet our artists in residence. This summer they will be roving the Clayton Community. You may see them at the Clayton Community Centre or at a nearby park. No previous art skills required to participate.

Tell Your Story with Jude

Jude Campbell is a Surrey based artist who collects found objects and personal historical artifacts. She reconfigures these into multi-media installations to give voice to personal and community stories.

Jude is meeting with local residents to listen to their stories. Jude will then use the text from these stories to create fabric banners. These banners will be hung from The Moment – the public artwork on the great lawn at Clayton Community Centre.

Strike a Pose with Claire Moore

Claire is collecting 100 poses from the Clayton Heights community—poses that reflect people’s experience of the past year. Claire’s drawings explore the many different ways people have been impacted and how we hold these memories in our bodies. Claire is also encouraging others to draw alongside with her. These series of sketches will create a starting point to have deeper conversations around shared experience. 

Claire Moore is a multi-media artist who lives and works near Crescent Beach. Her art practice ranges from small scale sculptural interventions to large format oil paintings and her process is often collaborative.

Life Drawing Event

Claire's project will culminate in a life drawing event to celebrate the community's contribution to this project and as an opportunity to reflect and connect with neighbours. Drawing may be intimidating, but no previous art skills are required. Claire will lead this session, open to ages 13 and up. Easel, chair, sketch paper, and limited charcoal provided.
