Registration for the Kelowna Art Gallery’s winter art class offerings for adults is now underway. Don’t miss your chance to take part in these high-quality, intimate classes that run from January through March. Those registering before January 9, 2015 will receive a 10% discount on fees.

Classes range from painting in watercolour, oil, and acrylics, to drawing or working with mixed media. Local professional artists Jim Elwood, Rena Warren, Harry Tonn, and Kendra Dixson join us to lead the classes.

Most classes run for six weeks, and cater to absolute beginners, as well as to 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.

The cost for each six-week-long series of classes is $130.00 for members of the Kelowna Art Gallery, and $160.00 for the general public.

In February and March, the Gallery will also be hosting three weekend workshops called Watercolour Workshop, Levels 1 & 2, led by artist Kathryn Newell; Mixed Media/Collage Workshop, led by artist Wanda Lock; and Visual Storytelling with Mixed Media, led by artist Natasha Harvey. The Kelowna Art Gallery is pleased to welcome these exceptional artist-instructors who will guide participants through the intensive two-day workshops.

The cost for each two-day workshop is $90.00 for members of the Kelowna Art Gallery, and $105.00 for the general public. Supplies are included in the cost of each workshop.
