As NFT Production Manager at Vectorvault, Natalie Jarvis is the woman behind the scenes. Co-ordinating. Problem solving and sourcing the pieces to bring it all together. But her real passion is a newly-discovered love of collage art. And after years of providing websites for others, she finally has one of her own.
Digital Art comes alive in Toronto
An artistic time machine
Disco never died. It simply moved to Toronto.
Classic House from Chicago, New York and Detroit was born out of the ashes of Disco. It thrived in Toronto because this city had all of the ingredients to nurture a safe and vibrant after-hours nightlife. Those days are long gone. It would be nice to relive them again.
Seems fitting that the AGO in Toronto would host a class like this one.
I have already booked my spot and sharpened my pencils.
I’m more than ready to climb into a time machine to draw some postures that will be influenced by some great music.
“…A one-day workshop (Sat, Jan 30th), where we explore a series of gestural drawing exercises set to Disco music and inspired by the Studio 54: Night Magic exhibition. Capture the poses and dance moves of a live model, while listening to music of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.”

“There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination.”

What better setting to stage a fantasy?
Toronto’s legendary Sunnybook Estates provided the perfect venue to overlay the theme. As an admirer of classic architecture, let me just say that this building is a gem. And rather than cover it, Lead Creative Director Sebastien Centner challenged his team to work in harmony with the surroundings. An instinct that paid off.
