Oxygen Art Centre (OAC) is excited to launch their education program for Fall of 2023 with an Open House event on Friday September 8, 2023, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. 

Oxygen welcomes the community to meet the artist instructors, take part in demonstrations, readings, and art-making activities, and learn more about the upcoming classes and workshops. Admission is free or by donation. Light refreshments will be available. Everyone is welcome.

The Fall semester features twenty courses in a myriad of disciplines including writing, film, singing, acting, painting, and drawing. Oxygen’s unique programming and incredible local artist instructors provide a rich experience to learn creatively together.

Throughout the semester Oxygen will offer affordable community-based programming including Figure Drawing, Painting the Model, and Art Speak and is once again partnering with the Polka Dot Dragon Arts Society to offer two workshops: Remembrance Luminaria and Letters to the Beyond where participants are encouraged to bring their creations to the celebration of All Souls on Sunday November 5th.

To register and learn more about the semesters, classes, and instructors, visit Oxygen’s website. Registration takes place through Google Forms on a first-come first-serve basis. Class sizes are small, ranging from seven to twelve students in each. 

Registration is now open. Contact Oxygen’s Education Coordinator, Natasha Smith at education@oxygenartcentre.org or 250-551-6329 with any questions.
