Summer is winding down at the Bay Breeze Gallery and we are in our last week of Big Kids Art Camp. This week we had Audrey, Olivia, and Holly and we had plenty of time to work on watercolors, acrylic, pastels, tie-dyeing, sandpainting and today a co-operative painting where each girl will re-create a section of Van Gogh's Starry Night! We will then put them back together for form the whole picture and mount it on some formboard to show in the gallery.
We also say good-bye this week to Hailey and Emilie, our summer students who are on their way to university this fall. Good luck to you both in your studies and we hope you have a great year ahead!
This summer we had an explosion of interest in our gallery, our artists and our art probably due to the great success of the Promenade Waterfront Village's programs of entertainment on a nightly basis and all the new existing shops and food outlets there. Thanks to Charlene D'Entremont, manager of the village and her staff for making this happen! We will be back to our fall schedule with reduced hours from 10 am until 4 pm operating Tuesdays to Saturdays. We will be manned by volunteers who are members of the Bathurst Art Society.
A new schedule for fall art classes is available for you to pick up at the gallery, or is available under upcoming events at www.bathurst.ca I am offering 6 classes beginning the week of Sept. 21st: beginners drawing, beginners water-color, advanced watercolor, 2 classes in contemporary acrylic and children's art. These are all 10 week classes and will be followed by winter and spring sessions.
