Art Classes – Kids, Youth and Teens

2021 Winter and  Spring Schedules are now posted.

Kids and Youth Art Programs are about exploring the expressive arts. The goal of our classes is to unleash the young artist within. How? By providing the tools by teaching various techniques and exposing various media; by providing time for practice and play in an encouraging atmosphere; and by providing opportunities to apply new skills in free time moments.

 Art Classes, Camps and Workshops

Art classes have  returned to the Studio but we will continue to offer the classes on ZOOM together with the Studio students for those who would prefer to stay home.

2021 Winter and Fall programs have been posted.

Exploration, experimenting and play are key to our children’s development.  Tactile learning,  a chance to process, practice and apply various skills without fear of judgment is an important aspect of child development skills, creative thinking and expression.

Art is a tool which allows for such processing. It creates joy, promotes self worth and helps to develop self confidence.

All materials are supplied

ongoing art classes

  AFTER-SCHOOL January to June 2021

Creative Art Journey Ages 6 – 12

Instructors Catherine Luce and Diane Finlayson:

These classes are designed to peak interest, ask questions, learn  to solve design and layout challenges creatively.  We continue to learn and apply various skills and techniques in a variety of media.

Catherine will be adding a flavour to the classes  teaching How to make puppets, painting animals and characters.

At this time, encouraging the young artist to experiment and to develop a personal style is key.  Each of us has a personal signature……..art is a great way to discover that!

Art allows for key processing.  It creates joy, promotes self worth and helps to develop self confidence AND creates an atmosphere for creative problem solving!

Diane is a seasoned teacher having worked with children for well over 40 years.  Experience teaches one to listen and to follow where the energy flows.  Diane brings a malleability to the lessons…..there will always be a lesson plan and a purpose, and then there will always be the magic that ensues when a child expresses.
