Arts & Crafts

 

Arts and crafts describes a wide variety of activities involving making things with one's own hands. Arts and crafts is usually a hobby. Some crafts (art skills) have been practised for centuries, others are more recent inventions.

Art cannot be taught, it comes from thinking. But it can be improved by practice.
— Apoorva Rathore

Both children and adults enjoy arts and crafts. Children in schools may learn skills such as fiber arts, printmaking, weaving, painting, drawing, or making things with all sorts of material. The Arts Community have evening or day classes and workshops where one can learn arts and craft skills.

 

Fiber Arts

An introduction to the fiber arts. Projects will allow students to explore off-loom woven structure, loom weaving, resist-dyeing and screen-printing. Students will work with flat pattern and composition as well as three-dimensional fiber construction. Historical works will be studied as well as the contemporary evolution of this art form.

 

Painting & Drawing

An introduction to oil painting, focusing on traditional painting methods and materials. Using direct observation, this course builds understanding of compositional principles, color relationships, the physical and expressive properties of paint, and the creative process.

An introduction and investigation of the relief and intaglio printing processes through linocut, woodcut, collagraph, monoprint, etching and drypoint, with an emphasis on personal visual growth. Research, writing and the history of printmaking will complement studio work.
