THE ART BLOG
In March, Tathlina Lovlin taught a beginner's wheel throwing workshop for members. Brian Bisset taught a photography workshop focusing on portraits earlier this month, followed by Shannon Parnall's glazing workshop, introducing us to using stencils, underglazes and liners....
Kate Middleton threw an enormous pot during drop in...
And Teri Cleverly continued to teach the Youth Mentorship Program which is a two year program funded by Columbia Basin Trust and run through the Elkford Arts Council. This is a work experience program for youth in the community of Elkford. The program has hired ten secondary students to learn how to teach various art mediums to thirty elementary students, and in the process gain valuable work skills. The program runs in the fall and winter of 2016 and 2017.
Changes are coming soon to the Art Studio as the Elkford Arts Council will soon be leasing this space from the District of Elkford. Classes, workshops and Drop In will be run through the Arts Council... so make sure you are on our mailing list, like us on Facebook and check this blog often for updates on programming.
There will be Drop In during the summer months, hours TBD
