Fall 2019 Art Class Registration is Now Open!

Happy June everyone! Fall is just around the corner and I am happy to announce that my Drawing for absolute beginner course will now be offered at 2 different locations! One is offered downtown at the Ottawa School of Art and the other will be offered west of Ottawa's inner core at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre! A special thanks to my past students who made this class popular, I couldn't have done this without you!

NOTE: My Summer classes are mostly full. But I found out that my Absolutely beginner drawing (Starts tonight!) has a few spots left. If you are interested, you can sign up today to get one of the spots! This version runs 2 nights a week for this month (August).

See the course offerings section of this newsletter for details about the above classes.
