Classes and Events

Autumn has arrived, and with it, the return of refreshingly damp and drizzly weather. Why not cuddle up to an enticing art class or two?  Here’s what I’ll be offering over the next several months.

I’m proud to be teaching at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. To register for any of my classes at the AGGV, contact Oona McClure, Studio Coordinator at, register online at, or call 250-384-4171 ext. 0.

At the AGGV I’ll be teaching Early Art Explorers for children aged 2-3 (with one caregiver). This is such a fun class! We learn about shape, colour and more as we play with all kinds of art media. Regular trips to the gallery and storytelling enhance the magic.

Class B – Fridays, November 2-December 14 (no class Nov 23)/10:00-11:00 AM

Although my first session of AGGV adult classes is sold out (“Wildly Layered”), there are still spaces for “ArtFULL – Other Dimensions”. Paint on non-traditional surfaces, create fascinating sculptures and make art from found objects in this exciting exploration of things three dimensional.

Over the last months of 2018 I’ll be completing a book project (something I’m writing and illustrating), making art for of events and publications (as ever), and working on an upcoming solo show. I’m always interested in private commissions and new teaching opportunities, so if you have any ideas or suggestions I’d love to hear from you.

I wish you a happy, healthy fall season!
