Winter 2022 classes and services
6:00pm to 8:00pm
Mix it up by learning to use drawing, painting, and mixed media to create your very own works of art. Our talented instructors will present a different art experience every week for our participants to work on.
In both the kid's and the adult class, participants will be introduced to a new form of art media each week. Students also have the option to work on a personal project over the course of the session and benefit from the expertise of the instructor.
In this class, students will be working on projects combining a variety of media and found objects to create a final product -- or a series of products-- as unique as they are.
Now you see it… and now you see differently. Explore different ways of processing and expressing your reality.
Drawing from the History of Abstraction (Jay Ginsherman)
In this course you will learn how to use abstract painting and drawing to express your world view in a visual form. Abstract art is defined as creating forms that use lines, shapes, and colours to communicate feelings, as opposed to an accurate depiction of visual reality. Students will explore the history of abstraction in three styles; impressionism, constructivism, and cubism by creating drawings and paintings in these styles.
Abstract Translation: Drawing and Painting (Jay Ginsherman)
In this course you will learn how to use abstract painting and drawing to express your world view in a visual form.

Finding your Own Abstract Style (Jay Ginsherman)

Heal Your Art (Jessica Carrasco)
Heal your art is a way to get back to the forgotten path of the inner art we carry within. Together, we create a safe environment for participants to explore colours and shapes and inspire one another. This activity is intended to go to the root of art, and each individual is encouraged to find their own form of expression without the pressure of accomplishing a specific technique or methodology. The instructor is part of the process; guiding and learning from the students to find the art that never stops growing inside us.
Paint, draw, or craft to your heart's content with the guidance of an experienced artist.
