The Student Art Innovation Lab is a new community outreach program run by UWaterloo fine and performing arts students. Programming centres around their newly restored and renovated vintage Airstream trailer that will operate as a mobile workshop and exhibition space.
The S.A.I.L. team is travelling throughout the Waterloo Region from June through August to deliver free pop-up art labs and to exhibit some of the many talented artists at UWaterloo.
Check out the display created by Student Art Innovation Lab (S.A.I.L.) in the Window Gallery at 56 Regina St N in Uptown Waterloo. S.A.I.L. has been running tons of Indigo dye workshops through May and June with local high school students. This display features some stellar work from the students at Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute and shows a bunch of different shibori techniques and shades of blue.
