2022 Spring Art Foundations Courses

Loved Art Bites? Ready for more?

The MAC’s 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.

Start with some basics on colour theory, composition, drawing or Zentangle, or jump right in and learn about acrylics, portraying light in your painting, wet felting, textile art and design, and more!

Classes run on Mondays, usually from 10 am – 3 pm and are $100/class.
