The Dorchester Creative Age Art Studio has moved into the Thames Centre Flight Exec Centre on the second floor next to the Business Development Centre.

Here is the Fall/Winter Schedule

Contact the Art Studio Coordinator for more information

Registrations and payments:
All workshops are registered and paid for through Karen Gress (519-268-2025) in the Senior Centre office.
The exception to this is the Silk Painting workshop.
Drop-In Fees can be made that day at the art studio.
Questions about the classes and location can be made by emailing me… penny@pennywearne.com
Read carefully.. there’s a lot of little details in each workshop that are important… well…. all of it is important but the details are especially important.

Volunteer Opportunity:
One big change is moving the Drop-In Day to Thursdays with a different theme for the Drop-In Days each month. On that thought… I am asking for volunteer artists to bring their talents to the Drop-In Days. It doesn’t have to be art based… it could be a writing class… or a meditating class… or a playlist sharing class! Please consider taking one or two or more drop-in days to share your art passion… let me know if you’d like to lead a small class or two and I’ll arrange for materials. On another thought… send me your ideas for Drop-In Days… what would you like to experiment with… what would you like to learn more about? Please send me those ideas and I’ll see what can be done.

SILK PAINTING with ARALE VALLELY
“A native of Hong Kong, Arale has been painting exclusively on silk since 2009. She is inspired by the challenge of aesthetically capturing complex subjects such as flowers and food through this unique medium. Having lived in Hong Kong, Qatar, and now Canada, her artistic themes have been greatly influenced by her multicultural experience.
Arale’s work resides in collections in more than a dozen countries around the world, and she has been featured in print publications, art symposia, and charity events overseas. A visit to her newly-renovated studio space will illustrate how she produces her unique works and how she teaches others the process of silk painting.”
