Popular Summer Art Class Series Offers Teens Creative Outlet

Paint-Off

A stimulating series of art classes geared specifically for teens returns to the Kelowna Art Gallery this summer. The Friday for Teens Art Series will run from 9 am to 2 pm every Friday, beginning July 24 and through to August 28.

During the classes, participants can expect to develop skills in drawing, painting, mixed media, and printmaking, while being inspired by the current exhibitions on view at the Gallery. Classes highlight skills-building and self-expression, as well as the introduction of new ideas and artistic techniques. The series is open to absolute beginners, as well as to those of intermediate skill level. Each week a different theme will be explored including Everything in Ink, Block Printing, More than Watercolour, Wildlife Drawing, People Skills, and more.

The instructor will be local artist Jim Elwood. Elwood is an accomplished artist in several media, including drawing, watercolour, and block printing. He is a graduate with honours from the University of Victoria, and has attended the Banff Centre’s studio program, as well as the University of Calgary’s Art Education program. Elwood’s time is divided among working as an artist, an illustrator, and as an art teacher.

Registration is now underway for these high-quality, intimate classes. The cost for each class is $55.00 for members of the Kelowna Art Gallery, and $70.00 for the general public. An option to attend the entire six-week series of classes is also available and will save participants money – with six classes for the price of five.

A full listing and description of available classes can be found on the Gallery’s website at www.kelownaartgallery.com. For more information or to register, please contact the Gallery at 250-762-2226.
