Brighten up winter with an acrylic painting class through the City’s Recreation & Culture Department.

A variety of classes are available for kids, teens and adults, beginner or advanced.

Youth and adults can try acrylic painting taught by Sharon Sanford in a program called Triptych. Triptych is a three-panel painting that can be hung next to each other on a wall. Participants will learn painting techniques including stippling and sponging for background effects to accent simple theme such as nature, animals, sports or music. All supplies are provided. Just bring your theme ideas. Classes will be held Tuesdays, Feb. 4 through 18 at the Sportsplex. Classes for youth 10 years and up will be offered from 7:15-8:15 p.m. Classes for teens 14 years and up plus adults will be offered from 7:15-9:15 p.m. The youth program costs $22. Teens and adult program costs $36.

Advanced Acrylic Painting classes taught by Caren Keine will explore the creative excitement of acrylic by building textures with gel mediums and painting directly in an oil painting method, or layering washes like a watercolour.

Advanced classes will be held Mondays from 6:30-8:30 p.m., starting Jan. 27 at the Community Centre. Participants will need to bring their own painting supplies to each class.  The cost for a six week program is $79.

For more information regarding classes, call 250-286-1161 or 250-923-7911.
