New Adult Art Classes - Winter Session

This Winter, the Artists for Kids is offering two more 4-session art workshops for Adults, one in the morning and one in the evening on consecutive Wednesdays.  The morning class, Thinking Outside the Canvas, is a new offering; the evening class, Colouring Outside Your Mind, is the same one that was offered last Fall.

Both workshops emphasize spontaneous creativity, playfulness, and having fun making art in a non-threatening and relaxed environment.  Students can expect the unexpected, and end up with some surprisingly cool artwork!  Check back weekly for updates on what the students are doing...

  1. It was so much fun last week. I loved experimenting with all the different painting tools. Lise

  2. What a wonderful initiative! It is so nice to do Art without any other purpose than playing with materials and trusting our creative impulses.
