Autumn is awesome

Fall comes to life for kids at a new art class taught by an experienced Campbell River artist

Pumpkin pinch pots, textured leaf mobiles, beads and pendants are a few of the clay projects planned for the upcoming ‘Autumn is Awesome’ Clay Sculpture kids’ class at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

Children ages seven to 12 will transform clay into fabulous fall sculptures, under the guidance of experienced artist Mary Deveau, Wednesdays from Oct. 2 to Oct. 23.

The class, which runs from 3-5 p.m. each session, is designed to challenge creativity and spark the imagination. Participants will investigate the potential of clay using various techniques, along with their own imagination.

Deveau is a Campbell River-based artist who works in ceramics and painting. She teaches art programs in area schools and has exhibited throughout the Comox Valley and in the Sooke Fine Arts Show. She graduates from the Emily Carr University Fine Arts program later this year.

The cost for ‘Autumn is Awesome’ is $75 for members of the Campbell River Art Gallery and $85 for non-members.

Stop by the Campbell River Art Gallery Tuesday to Saturday from 12-5 p.m., call 250-287-2261 or e-mail programs@crartgallery.ca for more information.
