Register now for adult art classes offered this winter at the Kelowna Art Gallery

Winter art classes available at the Kelowna Art Gallery

  • Dec. 18, 2015 6:00 a.m.

The Kelowna Art Gallery is pleased to announce  winter art class offerings for adults, available from January through March of 2016. Registration is now underway for these high-quality, intimate classes. Those registering before Jan.11, 2016 will receive a discount on fees.

Classes range from painting in watercolour and acrylics, to drawing or working with mixed media. Local professional artists Jim Elwood, Rena Warren, April Snowe, Meghan Wise, and Marzio Manderioli join us to lead the classes.

Most classes run for six weeks, and cater both to absolute beginners, as well as those of intermediate skill level. Beginners will learn the basic principles of their preferred medium, while also discussing, exploring, and expressing themselves through visual art. More advanced students will build on their existing skills through creative exercises to develop their abilities. Participants in all classes will complete and take home a number of works of art. Instruction by the Gallery’s art teachers is supportive, motivating, and inspiring.

In January, February, and March, the Gallery will also be hosting a number of special workshops including: Watercolour Weekend Workshop, led by artist Linda Lavista; Draw by Night, led by artist Myron Campbell; Portraiture Workshop, led by artist Jim Elwood; and a Bee Project Workshop, held in advance of an installation of 10,000 paper bees coming to the Gallery next summer. The cost for these workshops ranges from free for single-evening events, to $105 for the immersive two-day weekend workshops.

Gift certificates for art classes are now available from the Gallery and are a wonderful holiday gift-giving idea. A full listing and description of available classes can be found on the Gallery’s website at www.kelownaartgallery.com.

The Kelowna Art Gallery is located at 1315 Water Street in the heart of the Cultural District in downtown Kelowna. For hours of operation, or more information about programs available or current exhibitions, visit the Kelowna Art Gallery online at www.kelownaartgallery.com.
