Art Lab 2021 Course Calendar ~ Learn from the Best

We at Art Lab are really excited about this years line up of courses.. Not only do we have our well respected and popular faculty that have been with us for seven years but we’re very happy to introduce two new artists to town and to our calendar, weavers Tom and Beth Poirier.

We learned lots from the Covid-19 adjusted classes last year but one compromise turned out to please everyone. smaller classes for more instructor time. Meaning that many of our classes will max at 10 students. So please don’t hesitate to register soon to avoid disappointment.

‘The Sea in Me: Mixed Media Drawing’ with Michael Peters
Wednesdays, Jan. 13- Mar. 24/ 10 sessions / 6:30pm – 9pm / $325

Using a variety of artist’s tools, media and techniques, including: charcoal, dry-pastels, graphite, watercolour and acrylics, India-ink, collage and more, participants will develop artwork through a series of simple, studio-based exercises designed to explore the fundamental principles and elements of observational drawing, such as: line, texture, perspective, tone and colour, composition and unity. From whales to waves and sharks to shipwrecks, this course is for people of all ages, and all skill levels, who like to draw!

Please Note: No class will be held on Wednesday, March 17 (March Break).
