Since 1986 the ArtSpace program has provided arts instruction to both young and old in the North Peace region. Starting in the basement of a downtown business, the line to register for classes stretched a city block on our very first day. With the growth of the City of Fort St. John since then there has continued to be a strong desire to explore the arts in all formats including visual arts (drawing, painting, sculpture, photography), performing arts (dance, theatre, standup comedy), language arts (poetry, art journaling, second languages), and culinary arts (cooking, cake decorating, chocolate making). We hope you will enjoy the classes we have to offer. Please let us know if there is a subject that you would like to learn. Or maybe you would like to share your art with others.
This class will be an introduction to using pigmented wax, encaustic paper and the iron. Students will learn how to paint an abstract/fantasy card, a basic landscape and how to incorporate stamps into the work. No experience required.
In this beginners macramé class, you’ll get a huge dose of creative confidence, and take home your own beautiful wall hanging. You’ll be patiently guided through learning three basic knots that you can use to make just about any design you want. By starting with one panel following a pattern, you’ll learn how to create triangles, diamonds and arrows. Then you’ll get to create your own improvised side-panels, putting your own personality into your work! This fun class includes all the supplies you need: cotton macramé cord and dowel.
Let’s Art is an after-school program for 6 to 14 year-olds sponsored by The Peace Arts Gallery Society and North Peace Cultural Centre. Let’s Art will introduce youth to the arts through medium exploration. The sessions are facilitated by qualified instructors with varied artistic backgrounds.
