Oxygen announces fall line-up

From one-day workshops to seven-week courses, Oxygen Art Centre’s fall semester promises to have something for everyone, starting in Oct.

Beginning in October with many brand new offerings and the return of some classics, from one-day workshops to seven-week courses, Oxygen Art Centre’s fall semester promises to have something for everyone.

New this semester, Jordana Champagne will be teaching the course she wished she had been able to take when she started out in her acting career.

Her actors studio course is youth-focused. Anyone can inquire at Oxygen to find out about scholarship and volunteer tuition exchange opportunities.

Natasha Smith returns with her ever-popular low-tech printmaking, and Kriya A.J. Shakti will be offering her intuitive painting course. Both are six weeks long.

Deb Thompson has created two new courses this semester: a drawing course called Getting it Done that is suitable for all skill levels, and a studio-intensive painting course called Creating Chaos, suitable for those with painting experience.

Karen Guilbault will teach her very accessible one-day workshops for anyone aged 13-plus, and new Oxygen instructor Jennifer McAuley will be offering a beginner level painting course and a Christmas Creations workshop in November.

Musician Catherine McGrath will be found jamming with her students on a Sunday evening at the Centre for Folk Band Basics, and Rayya Liebich rounds off a very multi-disciplinary semester with her new course, Liminal Life Writing.
