Oil or Acrylic Landscape Painting - Inter/Adv
Register A course designed for artists with painting experience that are wishing to ‘move on up’ with their art. We will be trying different compositions, different palettes, and different sizes of canvasses. We will mainly be working from photos, but in a painterly manner. One objective for this course is to take either a photo, and do a small ‘little gem’ in a short time, or take a plein air painting and try larger canvas – a fear a lot of artists have. Moving on up so to speak. We will touch on topics that always give artists trouble – colour and value, composition, perspective, and loosening up. Come join this friendly, relaxed class. Class demonstrations based on your input, time to work on your own subjects, a chance to challenge yourself!

My Icon/My Meme - Mixed Media / Silk Screening: ages 13 - 15
Register A meme (/ˈmiːm/; meem)[1] is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture."[2] A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.[3]
Many iconic images or memes have become an important part of everyday culture. Whether it is ‘Doge’, ‘Philosoraptor’, ‘Success Kid,’ Andy Warhol’s soup cans, or musicians walking across a cross walk, for you older types, they all have something in common. They celebrate an idea. An example of popular culture, new album release, or a simple lifestyle mantra, our week will be about highlighting something or someone. You will learn to silk-screen and create your own personal t-shirt. Bring your ideas, music, cartoons, or anything that you would like to turn into your ‘Meme’ or your ‘Iconic Image’. Visiting the National Gallery’s latest exhibit will also be a part of that week.

Modern Day Artisan - Mixed Media: ages 8 - 9
Register Artisans are individuals who have special hands-on skills. They can make decorative or practical objects using primarily their hands, as opposed to machines.
During Medieval times, artisans were an integral part of society, for the objects they made were useful to everyday life. The candle maker, the armorer, the tailor, the potter and the rope maker all had a role to play in the community. Today, the objects they made are manufactured in large quantities by machines.
The artisans of our era sell their hand-made pieces in markets and shops. In a world where technology dominates, their skills intrigue and inspire us. We admire and respect the authentic beauty of their artifacts – one that can never be replicated by a machine.
This one week apprenticeship will teach you the basic skills required to make five different artisanal crafts that have a long history and tradition. From calligraphy, to quilling, to bead embroidery, we will travel back in time to learn about age-old art as we create projects where traditional techniques converge with modern day style. You are about to become a modern day artisan. Your training starts now!
