Fall Programming!

This fall we have lost of different programs for you to choose from!

Drawing Class with Liza Gaeau Tosh. This is a great class for many of us who have “drawing envy,” whether we already like to draw as a favourite pastime or we want to improve on our limited skills to make it more of a pleasant experience overall. Each session will have a different focus that relates to improving our drawing capabilities, such as line, value, composition, texture, subject consideration, and plein air perspective. We also will play with different dry and wet mediums in drawing, such as graphite, charcoal, conté, and ink, within the different sessions. This class is for beginners to experienced! Participants must be 14 or older! For more information and to register click here!

Station Theatre Mondays September 16th- meet and greet! All welcome! If you have an interest in theatre, whether it is on stage, backstage, front of house or production, then this is for you! No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm. The first week will be a chance to meet new people or reconnect with those that have similar interest to you. There will be a casual theme each week but we want this to come from the participants and what you are looking to explore. All ideas will be welcome!

Open Studio Every Wednesday 7-9 starting September 11th. Drop in at the Arts Station on Wednesday evenings for open studio time! If you are interested in the arts and need a space to create, this is a time for you to come and use the space, meet other artists, and get inspired. This is a self-guided time to get creative! Please note, the pottery studio is not open during this time.
