In-person art classes, workshops return to Chilliwack Cultural Centre

From pottery to mixed media to photography, summer art classes are back as health orders lifted

The doors of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre are open once again for artsy folk to take in-person classes and workshops.

From pottery to mixed media to photography, summer art classes are returning to the centre, along with open clay studio times.

Mixed Media Workshop is a class that will take people through numerous mixed media techniques to create a unique masterpiece in a single afternoon.

For those looking to go more in-depth to the world of mixed media art, Art Journaling will walk folks through the steps of creating a colourful, interactive art journal that is the perfect way to express themselves through art.

Beginning Photography will guide those with new cameras through how to use them. This class will explain the basics of composition, exposure, camera settings and even the different types of photography. It’s a great first step in starting a journey with photography.

For pottery enthusiasts, there a workshop called Make Clay Handles to learn new creative ways to do just that.

For those who have taken a pottery class at the centre, the Clay Open Studio is once again up and running. These studio sessions allow people to continue developing their skills independently by giving them a space to practice on the wheel, hand-building, or finish work started in class. Spots available within the open studio are limited, and registration is required.

While both pottery classes – Wheel 1: Intro to Wheel and Wheel 2: Beyond Basic Wheel – have already sold out, the box office offers a waitlist for the fall classes for those enthusiastic about learning to use the wheel to make stunning pieces of pottery.

Physical distancing protocols are in place for these classes.

For more information or to register for a class, visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, call 604-391-SHOW(7469), or stop by The Centre Box Office (9201 Corbould Street, Chilliwack).
