Jan 09 Acrylic Painting I - Meeting and understanding acrylic paint!

This class is designed for beginners!  
We will be exploring and getting to know the acrylic paints in a practical fashion that will build confidence and a deeper understanding of the medium.  We will be exploring colour and learning to recognize the various properties of the paint.  This is crucial to future success when you are painting  on your own and really fun to learn too!  During the 6 hour Saturday session  you will work on two small paintings using your own mixed grey scale and a simple still life (photographed to the left) using complementary colours.

Supply List* -  Brushes,  and primed 5x7 & 6x6 boards, and lots of squirts of various paints

6 SPACE 

Cost of class -  $190.00 + Supply Kit fee $125.00       

Shawna will provide each participant with a table top easel to paint on during the class.    There is an opportunity for participants to purchase their own Table Top easel which are made locally in Yellowknife.  Information will be made available at the class.

This class is the prerequisite for all other Acrylic painting classes.

All classes are held at 6 Bromley Drive. 920.4290

Hamelin: A New Fable is a musical adventure live action play that has been capturing the hearts and minds of elementary school and family audiences throughout B.C. 

Axis Theatre Company has combined an original script with live music, masks and puppetry. This unique revisiting to The Pied Piper fable features a large cast of professional actors and musicians. The toe-tapping 50 minute show takes a fresh approach to illuminate the “importance of keeping your word.”

Axis Theatre Company has actively pursued a multi-disciplinary style of theatre for 39 years. Employing the combination of mime, clown, mask-work, puppetry, text, music and acrobatics, Axis has earned 13 Jessie Richardson awards from the local theatre community. Hamelin is the largest cast of our signature piece The Number 14.

Plastique 

What’s more surprising than a plastic bag world where funny and colorful creatures are born and transform themselves as much as they like!

They fill themselves, empty themselves, they fly, they eat each other, they are bored - They exist.

Step by step they reveal their nature. They are primitive, naive and funny and even resemble us a little bit.

Remaining faithful to it’s artistic approach, Puzzle Theatre once again offers a multi-colored performance with unusual puppets, humor and unexpected situations.

Thunder and the House of Magic (Belgium, 2013, animation, 85 minutes) 

An abandoned cat named Thunder seeks shelter from a storm when it stumbles into the strangest house imaginable, owned by an
old magician.

Upon entering the house, the young cat finds itself surrounded by a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos.
