Art Tracks Resumes!

Oh, where did our summer go!  I hope everyone has enjoyed this short, sweet season!

Art Tracks studio received a fresh coat of paint this week, and classes are now set to resume.   Our first  after school class of the season will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 13th, running weekly throughout the school year from 3:20 - 4:35.  Enrolment is on a first come, first serve basis, but if  interest surpasses our maximum class size and numbers suffice, we'll open another class.    Potential time slots include Wednesday, from 4:45 - 6:00 p.m. and/or Tuesday, from 3:20 - 4:35.

Art Tracks weekly adult art class will also resume on Tuesday, Sept. 12, from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.  This is an open studio program offering techniques and feedback as you work in the media of your choice.  All levels are welcome!

New students may enrol in classes throughout the year, provided space is available.  For more information, please feel free to drop me a line at:

Once again, I look forward to meeting with our marvellously creative artists.  (Scroll down if you'd like to see what I mean!)  Being surrounded by so much talent and enthusiasm is always inspiring!

Art Tracks - New Location, New Classes

Greetings All!

I hope everyone is rested after another brief, lovely summer, and that the new school year is off to a positive start!  As many of you know, Art Tracks has a new address.  This year, our old room at Runnymede P.S. is unavailable, so we've packed our paints and moved half a block south to 328 Runnymede Rd.

Despite the  challenges of moving, we are very excited about having our own space!  With modifications to our new studio still underway, we're keeping fingers crossed that the work continues to progress smoothly so we'll be up and running before the month's end.  The projected start date for Art Tracks' after school program is Wednesday, Sept. 28th.

Our Wednesday after school class will run weekly, from 3:20 - 4:35 p.m., and the fee remains unchanged at $30.00 per week.   This class is filling up quickly, so if your son or daughter would like to join us, please drop me a line --- slots will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.

If there is sufficient interest, we may also open extra classes.  Potential time slots include Wednesday, from 4:45 - 6:00 p.m. and Tuesday, from 3:20 - 4:35 p.m.

As well, I am often asked about adult art classes.  Happily, our new location affords greater scheduling flexibility, and consequently, we are now offering adult sessions as well.  If your "inner artist" is demanding release, feel free to drop me a line --- We have space in our Tuesday evening group --- All levels welcome!

Looking forward to another year with our marvelously creative artists!
