Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to announce the latest line up of courses and workshops for the Winter/Spring 2014 semester of Continuing Arts Education.  

There are quite a few new workshops this semester, as well as the return of some very popular courses.

January kicks off with offerings from the fabulous Bessie Wapp:  Balkan Choir – Add your voice to the bold dissonance & clear sweetness of ancient mulit-part Eastern European a capella songs of love & lust, harvest & hearth, wartime, badly arranged marriages, drunken husbands, & more! 

Bessie will also be teaching the ever-popular and much loved Singing the Blues – Life is the only experience required to growl, groan, wail and moan!

Each week we’ll learn a blues song, and explore the rich swamp of the human voice in a relaxed & supportive environment. On the last class we’ll sing with a live band for invited guests.

February heralds new workshops from Natasha Smith including Fine Art Shadow Boxes (after Joseph Cornell) and Be Creative! . Erica Konrad will be offering her very popular Encaustic Basics – Painting with Beeswax course in both February and March. 

For those who have taken this course you are eligible to sign up for the new Encaustic & Stencils workshop, as well as the next level workshop: Intermediate Encaustic Painting

March and April bring two new writing courses: Writing What We Love with Susan Andrews Grace and Creative writing for performance and spoken word with Magpie Ulysses. 

Deborah Thompson will offer two new courses in April: Painting: Modernist Manifestos and Following a Line – figure drawing and painting.  Natasha Smith is then back for the final workshop of the semester: Collage Painting
