October 21 - Spectral Tides Exhibition Tour and Postcards
We will tour Jin-me Yoon’s exhibition in the gallery Spectral Tides and view her video, photographs and installation works that speak to identity and the land. Back in Art Lab we will draw the land, sky and sea with sharpies on postcard sized card stock and then insert an action photo of ourselves. Take home playful postcards that share the spontaneous interactions we have here on the shores of Vancouver Island!
October 28 - Land and Sea Abstractions
Using acrylics on canvas board we will mark out the land and sea in broad colourful strokes. Inspired by Lauren Harris’ iconic paintings and his foray into abstraction we will tape and scrape the paint to create strong linear forms and vivid abstractions of the land. Exciting painted surfaces emerge as we experiment, mix and move paint to create imagery that references our vast landscape.

Do you have a LEAP card? Your child may be eligible for a bursary. Two LEAP spots are available each week; one per family. Each family is welcome to use up to 2 LEAP spots per month.

Maximum program enrollment is 12 students. All phone reservations must be paid prior to 5 pm the Friday before Saturday Studio. Walk-in payments are accepted until 10:15 am Saturday if space allows.
