Quilting, drawing, wood carving and pottery are among the courses that the Estevan Arts Council will be offering this fall.
The fall session begins September 17 with Eileen McKersie, an avid local quilter, doing a six-week quilting workshop. This class is geared towards the novice, and participants are presumed to know little or nothing about quilting.
October is filled with classes. Artist Barb Goretzky leads a two-day pottery workshop October 5 and 6. Goretzky has attended workshops and artist-in-residence programs throughout North America. This class is for intermediate or advanced potters.
Art instructor Judy Swallow will explore elements such as color, design and subject matter, and express them through the creation of a piece of art during a session on October 19.
Doris Sheldon will host a weekend clinic October 26 and 27 on wood carving for beginners, intermediates and other skill levels.
Youth Art Discovery will return with instructors Cheryl Andrist and Hannah Keating. For six weeks from October 9 to November 13, young people ages seven to 13 will explore the world of art. Participants will take home a number of items.
Darlene Martin will be teaching pottery on November 2. People can learn the basics or further develop their skills for transforming clay into objects.
Levi Wheeler will teach children ages 10 and up about the art of cartooning on November 18 and 19. She will provide tips on different ways to draw and create cartoon characters.
A workshop, offered in conjunction with the Estevan Arts Council's Adjudicated Art Show, will be taught by Swallow on December 1. Participants will have the opportunity to develop skills which will enable and support a creative lifestyle.
All classes are held in the arts council's craft room.
