Gallery art classes for children offered

The gallery’s popular art classes for children ages 7, 8, and 9 that starts on Thursday, Jan, 23 and will be taught by Ivanna Crosina.

The Station House Gallery will be hosting two sets of art classes this winter.

Registration is now being taken for the gallery’s popular art classes for children ages 7, 8, and 9 that starts on Thursday, Jan, 23 and will be taught by Ivanna Crosina.

“Parents and children alike appreciate her methods and are always very happy with what is learned and produced,” says gallery manager Diane Toop.

This is the third year that Crosina has taught the classes for the Station House Gallery.

An artist and teacher originally from Toronto, Ont., Crosina now teaches for School District 27.

She specializes in drawing, painting, and printmaking, and loves to experiment with recycled materials and mixed media.

She studied Fine Arts at Queen’s University, and earned her Bachelor of Education in Toronto at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.

She has been teaching art and working with adults and children for over 10 years in many different facets of the art field.

Crosina will teach eight, one-and-a-half-hour classes for children 7 to 9 starting Thursday, Jan. 23. The $60 fee includes all materials and is eligible for a tax credit, Toop says.

Starting in March, she says the gallery also plans to host a comic art class instructed by Jazymn Doullaird.

Students in this class will leave the course with a completed comic, Toop says.

She says details for this class are still being worked out but it will be a class for students 14 and older including interested adults.

To register for either of these classes contact Toop at 250-392-6113 or email her at manager@stationhousegallery.com

The gallery is closed until Thursday, Jan. 16 for inventory and to provide time for the gallery to get ready for the new show season, Toop says.
