Free ( and almost free) art classes and online learning!
If you're anything like us, the limits of your knowledge are a bit "root bound." It's been month and a half of social distancing due to the COVID 19 crisis. There are so many free art and materials classes both locally and abroad we thought we'd share a few links. Let us know if we're missing your favourite class. Have a wonderful time learning, we hope that these classes bring some joy to a challenging time. - The Endeavours and Think Play Staff

This class at the the Ville does have a fee attached but it will be well worth it!
In this class, you will be given the tools to paint and draw accurate, life-like, and creative portraits. We will look at the structure of the face and upper body, how to use light and dark to get three-dimensional effects, and which materials and colours to use. Particular attention will be paid to smiles, eyes, and hair. You will be encouraged to try new things while building your skills and use more expressive techniques. In this online forum, you will be given the opportunity to ask questions and see techniques demonstrated.
This class is taught by Cora Woolsey, who has received training in painting, drawing and illustrating, pottery, metalworking, and archaeological and scientific drawing. Cora has taught painting, drawing, and many other subjects related to art and fine craft.
Cost: $20 or by donation
