Pottery and Acrylic Painting Workshops
The Nanaimo Art Gallery is offering seasonal acrylic painting and pottery workshops for ages eight and up (all ages welcome). While the children are creating artworks, parents can take the opportunity to do some shopping. Artist in the Schools artist Arless McNeill will instruct participants during the two-hour workshop on acrylic painting on canvas board, producing a hand-painted work of art to take home. Artist Lori Sorensen will instruct participants during a three-hour pottery workshop. The result will be a mug or ornaments for the tree, etc. after they has been fired. Such creations are perfect for gift giving. Both workshops will take place on Saturday, December 6, 2008, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. The acrylic painting workshop will be at the gallery's downtown location, 150 Commercial Street, and tuition is $25 per person. The pottery workshop will be at the campus location, 900 Fifth Street, with $30 tuition. All materials will be supplied. Those interested must register by 5 pm on Tuesday, December 2, 2008. Call 250-740-6350 for more information.
