Arts for Wellness – Drawing

This course is for the ultimate beginner and intermediate participant. Using a step by step approach we will work mostly from still life. Explore how to get the basic shape of something to how to make it look like it has volume. Shading, light and dark value, and perspective will be explored. One class will be devoted to portrait and one to landscape drawing. Using hand-eye coordination, pencils, graphite and charcoal, we will cover the fundamental knowledge of the art of drawing.  A must for beginners!  For those with some experience it is a chance to hone your skills and get some feedback and guidance.

Arts for Wellness – Improv

Improv “The Art of Possibilities”.  Want to have fun, sharpen your mind and feel good all at the same time?  Try IMPROV.  Only a few rules: 1. Make your partner look good and feel amazingly smart!  2. Train your brain to go with your gut 3.  YES…and!   Using these principles, we will have fun while improving our health and our minds!

Charity Work

Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 1-3pm is the time we put aside to help others. We will continue to be busy with the Izzy Dolls, PICC Line Covers, Twiddlemuffs & Wildlife Bird’s Nests along with weaving and crocheting Milk Bag Mats and Totes for third world countries.

Creative Arts

Our Studios include Visual Art, Crafts, and Woodworking. Here you can pursue your artistic talents and aspirations. Our goal is to provide experiences that enrich your quality of life through art.

Painting Studio

Members who wish to improve their skills learn to use colour more effectively, create the illusion of painting three-dimensional objects, and anything else that will result in a piece to be proud of in this informal open studio. Our resident artist will share their “tricks of the trade” to help you reach your happy conclusion.

Production Volunteers

Production Volunteers are volunteers who make quality crafts for the center. We sell these crafts at our Craft Studio Boutique and at our annual sales throughout the year. There is no fee for these courses, we supply the materials and the members have fun creating works of art.
