SEPTEMBER 30: Botanical Clay Impressions

During this workshop we will press delicate impressions of fall leaves we have gathered to create beautiful pottery leaves.

THANKSGIVING! OCTOBER 7: Giving Thanks

Inspirational Feathers on Canvas: Art is a great way to express your thoughts and this workshop will talk about how to use colour, how to paint a whimsical feather and how to combine an inspiring quotation with your painting to create a meaningful and thoughtful piece of art for Thanksgiving.

OCTOBER 21: Mixed Media Assemblage

This workshop will allow your imagination to wander as we create assemblages which are pieces of art made by combining found objects together.  A blank canvas will be our starting point as we combine Japanese paper, buttons, fabric scraps, yarn, paint and more together to create a landscape.

OCTOBER 28: Painted Pumpkins

Greet your Trick-or-Treaters this Hallowe’en with a funky painted pumpkin on your doorstep!  Using acrylic paint we will learn about various painting techniques while we create one-of-a-kind art on pumpkins!

NOVEMBER 18: Moon Scratchboard

We will use the various shades of blue, purple, silver, white and turquoise to create whimsical scratchboard drawings of the moon.  By scratching away the paint layer and revealing the coloured wax underneath we will be able to explore the various textures in our drawing while we ask ourselves: what do you see when you look at the moon?
