Artists' Way Classes at the Shatford Centre!

Category: Art / Creative
Description
The Shatford Centre-Okanagan School of the Arts Presents:

Artists' Way Classes with Niki Hylin!

Come join instructor and artist, Niki Hylins, for her experiential workshop and interactive art classes this summer from July 28th to August 25th at the Shatford Centre-Okanagan School of the Arts!

This series of classes offered to individuals with any artistic skill level and anyone who wants to free and nurture the creative spirit within all of us. It is my belief and my experience as a teacher that all of us are healthy enough to practice creativity. It is not a dangerous endeavor requiring trained artists. It is our human birthright and something we can do gently and collectively. Creativity is like breathing pointers may help, but we do the process ourselves. Creative clusters, where we gather as peers to develop our strength, are best regarded as tribal gatherings, where creative beings raise, celebrate, and actualize the creative power which runs through us all.



Classes for term one will begin on July 28, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and will continue through to August 25. Summary: Niki will facilitate and guide students though creative projects based on the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. This is the first of three terms of four weeks plus one extra week for celebrating our creative achievements.

Price for 5 classes is $75. There is an additional charge of $50 for all the materials you will need!


Instructor: Niki Hylin

Level: Everyone Welcome

Date: July 28- August 25, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
