Creative Explorations for Ages 6-8
Tuesdays (3:30–5:00 pm)
6 weeks September 7th — October 14th
$150 plus GST (includes all art supplies and a complimentary beverage per class)
Creativity is a very important aspect of our lives and yet unfortunately art class in school is often reduced to “following the instructions”. In the 6 weeks of this class, many techniques of mixed media and drawing will be explored through guided creative play. With Catherine’s extensive knowledge of art fundamentals, the kids will be welcomed into her world of creative expression and enjoy producing unique and self expressive art, learning to trust their own intuitive voice. *New projects each instructional session.
Maximum 6 students

Mixed Media on Paper, Wood & Canvas for Ages 9-12
Thursdays (2:30–4:30 pm)
6 weeks September 11th — October 16th
$225 plus GST (includes all art supplies and a complimentary beverage per class)
Over the 6 weeks the kids will work on 3 “raw, intuitive style mixed media” paintings (with gesso, fluid acrylic, spray paint, stamping, stencils, molding paste, and collage, coupled with a strong design and colour component), and watch as layers and images appear and disappear. And then working with a controlled drawing approach they will take their paintings through the abstract phase to a wonderful creative exploration of their own thoughts.
This class is suitable for both beginners and advanced artists.
Maximum 6 students
