Develop your personal style and expression. Learn about techniques, tips and tools to help you get the most out of every character and expand your storyline.  Bring your own flare to this nine-century-old Japanese illustrating tradition. Classes begin Wednesday, April 6, and continue weekly to April 27 from 3:45-5:45. Cost for gallery members is $60; $70 for non-members. Registration deadline is April 2.

You can also try your hand at glass etching with Rebecca Young. This class runs two Saturdays; April 9 and 23, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Students will draw designs, which they’ll transfer to adhesive film and adhere to glass panes. The image will be cut away, then etched using a special etching paste.

Once the paste cures, students wash it away and, like magic, a beautiful etched-glass window hanging is revealed.  Cost for gallery members is $30, $40 for non-members. Registration deadline is April 6.

Call 250-287-2261 or drop by the Gallery to register.
