Polymer clay sculpting with Nicholas Frenette

Three-part October workshop at Campbell River Art Gallery

Join artist Nicholas Frenette for a fascinating three-part workshop on polymer clay sculpting at the Campbell River Art Gallery this October.

The class will run for three Saturdays, Oct. 3, 10 and 17, from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Campbell River Art Gallery studio. Frenette is an artist whose imagination knows no bounds, so students will be inspired to create! This course will explore a variety of techniques for sculpting and molding with polymer clay, from basic methods for making figurines to the introduction to a self-directed project.

Frenette is an artist whose work lacks no imagination. His talents encompass painting, drawing, sculpture and body art and take you to places you’ve never dreamed of.

Although inspired by classical artists, Frenette has a distinct and defined style. Much of his work incorporates a theatrical component – no surprise, considering many of his works are also inspired by Baroque opera.

Now living in Campbell River, Frenette began his formal art training in 2006 when he enrolled in the renowned art school NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He moved to Vancouver to finish his degree at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where he graduated in 2011. He has been showing his work since 2006 and has been steadily building a following. His art has been displayed at numerous galleries and is held in many private collections.

The three part October workshop costs $90 for Campbell River Art Gallery members and $110 for non-members. Space is limited, so don’t delay in registering.
