Thursdays 7 – 9 pm

Course Description:

Life is still the only experience where one is required to growl, groan, wail and moan the blues! In this course we will explore the rich swamp of the human voice in a relaxed and supportive environment through online group and one-on-one sessions led by Bessie Wapp. For the last session we will dress up–swellegant–to celebrate each participant as they sing the song they’ve practiced over the seven week course! You will need access to a computer, the internet, and a space comfortable for singing – perhaps even in the shower! ; )

Resurrecting the Lost Art of Letter Writing with Rayya Liebich

IN-PERSON at Oxygen Art Centre

5 Classes: Oct. 7, 14, 21, 28

Wednesdays 10 am – 12 pm

Course Description:

Modern correspondence through Email, Twitter, and texting provides efficient communication but the old-fashioned letter was a tool that connected us as human beings. Come re-discover the gifts of a powerful literary form.

Using great literary epistles as inspiration, we will craft imaginary letters and postcards to enliven our fictious stories. We will also use the letter as a tool for personal exploration by writing and sending letters of gratitude (to people in our immediate lives and from our past), letters that cannot be sent but must be written (to the deceased, to those we can’t forgive), and time capsule letters to be opened only in the future or after our lifetime.

Materials will be provided but it is encouraged to bring your favourite pens and stationary.

Course Fee: $115                    Material Fee: $10

Art Shack with Ian Johnston

ONLINE

4 Classes: Oct. 7 & 21, Nov. 4 & 18

Wednesdays 7 – 9:30 pm (Staggered)

Art Shack is a visual arts professional development workshop free-for-all that transforms the singular ditch of desolation of the art practice into a velvet rut–with peers, colleagues, and friends.

Over four evenings of group conversation, participants and facilitator Ian Johnston will review each other’s texts, from grant applications to artist statements and proposals to critical art writing. The workshop will harness the hive mind and experiences of the participants to explore a self-identified group of professional development issues such as proposals, statements, audience, networks, researching opportunities, etc. Submission of a text upon registration is encouraged but not required (2 pages max.) for discussion at the first session.
