An evening of artmaking for adults interested in exploring creativity and developing skills in a variety of techniques. All skill levels are welcome.
In January and February: Katrina Slade
Katrina Slade is an artist working primarily in mixed media painting. Originally from Oregon, she is a third generation artist with a lifelong passion for creativity. Slade earned a BFA from Oregon State University, followed by a Master’s degree in Teaching. Her abstract work is typically inspired by concepts related to her affinity for mindfulness and emotion. Slade’s evolving style is influenced by her international experiences and world travel. After spending seven years living and traveling abroad, she immigrated to Canada in 2018, and currently lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
Over the course of January and February, students will explore the art of renowned Canadian artist David Milne. Through the analysis of Milne's work, knowledge of line, colour, and composition will be gained. The series of interactive lessons will be focused on the media Milne was most often known to work with: watercolour and oil paint. Not only will students learn about formal art elements and painting techniques, but they will also become more confident in their creative ideas. In line with Milne's personal belief that art should formally express a feeling, students will be guided through the process of creatively interpreting a sense of place in their own work.
Cost: $8 for members or $15 per session for non-members. Ages 16+. All materials are included. Please register by calling 458-2028.
