Portrait and Figure Drawing: From Sketch to Painting, Intro-inter, Thurs, 6 - 9 pm
Register Linear drawing and sketching are the base on lines and an excellent drawing technique and way of gaining hand control over the line, honing fine motor skills.
Tonal drawing more often used by painters, because their perception of colour and tone often based on play of various masses of a tone different in saturation and configuration.
And, of course, there is also a complex approach to drawing with the use of both techniques.

Succession in drawing will result in certain benefits: eye training, ability to catch movement, proportions and composition at once, without prolonged and sometimes tiresome process.

Sculpture: Mold-Making and Casting, Intro-adv, Thurs, 6 - 9 pm
Register This hands-on, exciting course is designed to offer students an understanding of the technical and creative aspects of sculpture and mold making. In this course, we can bring anything you can imagine to life.

Modern sculptors are able to use mold making to create plaques, wax creations and candles, realistic museum pieces, movie props and prosthetic limbs. Mold making is even used by chefs and bakers to create custom chocolates and sugar sculptures. More than ever, this industry really gives you the freedom to create any sculpture you can imagine.

During this course, students will learn some of the basics of mold making, casting copies and what to consider when sculpting pieces for mold making. Together we will work through the planning stages of creating a sculpture and the process of making a mold and how to casting to achieve the best results.

Street and Photography, Intro-inter, Wed, 6 - 9 pm
Register In 1967, Gary Winograd, Lee Friedlander and Diane Arbus exhibited their work in the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition “New Documents”. Curated by John Szarkowski, this exhibition of 94 black and white photographs changed the course of how we viewed documentary photography. Their work crossed boundaries between photojournalism and fine art as their personal style differentiated their imagery. Their vision motivated a generation of photographers to transform the reality of everyday urban life.

This course will balance viewing the work of seasoned Canadian photographers as well as an open critique of student's work. Workshop exercises will concentrate on improving one’s seeing and the recognition of potential of any given subject. One will be introduced to the simplicity of using one lens, where pre-visualization of one's subject and their surroundings becomes a faster response. A wide range of issues of photographing people in an uncontrolled environment will be discussed, including ethics and the law. Beyond photographing people on the street, photographing urban landscapes both in the day and night will be included in the class.
