Blues Singing II begins Saturday, Sept. 24. Registration is through Kootenay School of Art (250-352-2821) or drop by 606 Victoria St.

Also at Oxygen

The Oxygen Art Centre is also offering courses in painting, writing and filmmaking this fall. 

  • Coming up fast is Brad Carr’s “Fiction Fundamentals.”

This course will combine intensive writing exercises with reading and critiquing the work of others. 

  • Murray Kimber will be teaching “The Essential Figure: Drawing.”

The human form has long been a standard in art. This course offers a simple, logical approach to figure drawing based on three areas of emphasis.  

  • Natasha Smith will be sharing her extensive knowledge of collage in her “Collage Painting” course.

Learn how to create interesting surfaces using a diverse range of materials and then combine painterly techniques to create colourful textural paintings.  

  • Deb Thompson will be offering “Inside Out: Figure Painting.” 

In this course students will study the human figure from the inside out  – exploring how the human skeleton informs the body’s outlying structure and movement. 

  • Cassie Beecham will be teaching “Playwriting.”

This course will help students develop a half hour stage play while coming to understand plot, dialogue and characterization.

For complete information and dates and details please go to our website or follow us on Facebook.
