Our classes are taught by a number of highly qualified and creative individuals. These classes can range from dance, to sewing, to giant puppet making, to watercolour painting.
The Art Station School Tour programs combine educational exhibition tours and hands-on art activities for students of The Elk Valley. Students will explore the exhibition as they lean about contemporary artists and the artists’ processes. Art activities provide a fun, creative extension to the students’ learning experiences, while they develop specific artistic skills. Tours are guaranteed to stimulate dialogue, facilitate questions, and complement the fine arts curriculum, as well as encourage the exploration of art.
The Arts Station is home to a dedicated adult and children workshop series from September through May.
Throughout the year other workshop and class options arise. Classes and workshops vary in duration and may be one-off events featuring a visiting artist, drop in series, scheduled weekly event, weekend camp or other format. Past and current events include feltmaking, pottery, painting, drawing, graffiti art, drama, creative writing, lantern building, crafts, encaustic art, jewellery making, sculpture, film-making, and much much more!
