Artin’ Out after school this fall

September 1, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Local Artist Nikki Gour has been working with the Bowness Community Association to create an after-school art program for the children in our community. Back in May Gour launched a first session of art classes she says worked out well.

The Artin’ Out After-school Art Program provides a learning environment that cultivates children’s freedom to express themselves through the experience of creating works of art. Through painting, sculpture, print-making and drawing, students will learn about materials, use of colour and different contemporary styles and artists.

The program is structured to introduce new and different ways in which students can express themselves visually. “It is important for children to learn how to visualize. It will serve them well, in hopes of creating the vision they aspire to eventually become,” says Gour.

The fall session begins in October, at a Bowness location to be confirmed. Classes will be offered Tuesdays at 4:30– 6 p.m. and Thursdays at 5:30–7 p.m. The cost is $149.25 for a six-week program, including supplies.

For more details and to register, please contact Nikki Gour at 403-585-2300 or nikki@nikkigour.ca.
