Art Foundations

When you want more than just a bite…

Following the success of the MAC’s Art Bites program, our Art Foundations Program is designed for people who want more formal education in the basics of visual art theory, as well as techniques for different mediums. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the principles of art and how they might apply to their own art practice.

The Art Foundations Program begins with three core courses: Drawing (Creative Imaging), Colour Theory (Decoding Colour), and  Composition (Secrets to the Art of Placement). These classes give an ‘elemental’ understanding of the underlying concepts used in creating visual art.

Subsequent workshops  are built on these three classes and students can focus on a medium or method, with instructors recommending any/all of the core courses as prerequisites. Classes may include painting, textile art, drawing and more.

Art Foundations classes are held on Mondays from 10 am – 3 pm.  All materials included.
