Do You Have A Little Artist In The  House? 

We are once again opening doors and breaking barriers to art exploration. This fall youth have the chance to learn from three incredibly talented art instructors at our NEW Saturday morning Workshop Series.

Workshops will run October 23rd to December 4th from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Instructors Marion Meyers, Carey Nicholson, and Ami Privett will lead youth through various art activities that will engage and develop a young passion. The workshops are geared specifically at grades 3 to 8.

A Bit More About The Instructors

Marion Meyers is an encaustic painter and quilter. She is inspired by the whimsical color combinations and strong lines she sees in both urban and rural landscapes. Marion brings several years of experience in teaching and creating art. When you take one of her workshops you are sure to be inspired to try new techniques while in a supportive environment.

Carey Nicholson has been engaged in arts for over 40 years. Carey’s arts experience includes past Administrative Manager for the Toronto Centre for the Promotion of Fashion Design, past co-owner of META4 Contemporary Craft Gallery and past Executive Director of the Scugog Council for the Arts. Carey brings a wealth of experience with teaching and art direction.

Ami Privett obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Photography from OCAD University graduating in 2014. She is a current member of the Scugog Council of the Arts and is an active member in art events in the area. Within her work she has taken her two passions; Art and Photography, merging the two to create energetic and surreal artwork. Working in mixed media she has combined image transfers, acrylic, watercolor, reclaimed books, newspapers, and wax.
