Monday Full-Day 10-Week Program - 2019

 

This program consists of 10 Full-Day classes held on a Monday at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island. These sessions provide an in-depth, high-level, hands-on, overview of what every visual artist should know. Each class is dedicated to a different topic and taught by a different instructor, in order to expose artists to a range of concepts and teaching methods. Attendance at all 10 isn’t mandatory, but the classes do build on one another. We encourage you to attend as many classes as possible to get the full value from the experience.

 

This program is highly recommended to those whose schedule allows for this level of commitment. Students will experience the fundementals in an introductory fashion but the full day will allow for a more dedicated, in-depth overview of each subject. The fuill day sessions do include hands on art exercises and practicing.
