Gallery Space: Winter Workshops All Around

January 5th, 2007 - This week in the Gallery Space:

Amidst the messy pile of New Year's Resolutions filling our headspace, the desire to be a little more artistic has crossed more than one mind. A number of local galleries have picked up on that and are offering Winter Workshops to help out. Two notable workshop series (with registration now open) are *drumroll please*:

The InterAccess Interactive Art Workshop Series
Explore the creative uses of technology with the brilliant folks at InterAccess (9 Ossington Ave).

Workshops look at how a computer can communicate with and integrate visuals, audio and electronics. Furthermore, instructors will also demonstrate production strategies for art, including performance, interactive installation, audio, video, and kinetic or robotic sculpture and installation.

For course info, instructor bios and registration visit the InterAccess workshops website. Workshops run February through April.

The ROM also brings us Winter Courses & Lectures starting later this month. These vary in topic and cost... and there are even singles events.

I'm excited about some of the historical lectures and f I can sell a couple more works this month, might even be able to fit one in the budget.

Some of the topics available: Acrylic Painting, For Valentine's Day: Food for the Mood, Seeing Art through Words: Art & Artists in Contemporary Fiction, Jewellery Diaries, 1880-1930 (learn the history of jewellery), Gemstone & Fine Jewellery Workshop, Exploring Islamic Arts & Culture, Ancient Cities.

For info and registration visit the ROM courses website!
