New art classes for adults at PdA
Three new visual arts classes for adults have been added to the winter roster at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts, which is marking its 40th anniversary this year.
Susan Cowan will be instructing a drawing session on Thursday nights for students aged 18 and over who want to learn about still life to the human figure. Proportion, shading and composition will be covered using charcoal and pencil.
Stan Hunc, a teacher at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, will offer Drawing 102 — an intermediate-level drawing class on Wednesday nights that was added on demand by his Drawing 101 students. Hunc will also instruct Painting 101 on Friday nights and Pen & Ink Drawing classes on Monday nights.
And multimedia artist Joy Kirkwood will run Art Journaling on Tuesday nights, covering such basics as sketching and watercolour painting.
Meanwhile, the Maillardville facility also has a number of drawing and painting courses for kids and teens this winter including:
• Preschool Drawing & Painting (with Olga Pirogova) for three- to five-year-olds;
• Drawing & Painting (with Olga Pirogova and Stan Hunc) for five- to 17-year-olds;
• and Watercolours & Acrylics (with Olga Pirogova) for eight- to 12-year-olds.
Youth can also sign up for cartooning, anime and animation with Kenten Bowick, Clay Play with David Robinson, and fibre arts with Catherine Dumaine.
