In August, Art on the Deck will be focusing on a different medium each week, with demos and facilitation led by experts in each respective medium! 

In conjunction with Art History with Jackie, this week will focus on the influence that music has had on art and the painting process. Come join us and paint to some music with DJ Jay Ray playing (materials not provided) 

Adult only!

This spring I was testing a distance art program for my day job in teen recreation. I found a set of watercolours I’d kept in a box since I went to Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson in 2002.

I went to KSA to pursue my dream of being a writer. As an afterthought I picked Mixed Media as my second studio. In one short year, KSA lost its funding and both the Mixed Media and Writing programs ended.

Last year I bought my first real camera; a lightly-used digital SLR. For years I had heard terms like ‘exposure’ and the ever-mysterious ‘f-stop,’ but they remained abstract concepts—the secret language used by photographers to work their magic.

My first attempt at chainsaw carving did not turn out like I thought it would. It was absolutely terrible. It was a human face and it was really bad. I did however know where my mistakes were.
