Lunenburg School of Arts Summer Workshops 2019

Lunenburg School of the Arts is pleased to announce it’s summer 2019 list of workshops and instructors. This fifth year of weeklong courses runs through the months of July and August.
The School is located at 6 Prince Street (at the corner of Montague) in a historic two-storey building in the heart of Old Town Lunenburg. The building was originally built to house Lunenburg Motors in 1933. After other incarnations the building was renovated in 2014 to house the Lunenburg School of the Arts.
Kicking off the Summer 2019 season LSA welcomes master sculptor Chippie Kennedy for a 3D portrait workshop. Design expert and art educator, Michael Peters, will be seen all over the Town of Lunenburg with his class of sketchers the first week of classes.
"This is the fifth summer of a full schedule of courses at our School. It's been exciting putting it together”, says Senator Wilfred Moore, who volunteers as Chair of the Board. “We hope it gives an artistic buzz to Lunenburg as we celebrate our fifth year!"
Walter Ostrom, CM, Professor Emeritus of Ceramics at NSCAD University, returns to teach a two-weeks long master course with ceramic artist Katrina Chaytor, who is Professor Emeritus of Ceramics at ACAD, Calgary Alberta.
Tom Ward, of Mahone Bay, will be teaching plein-air landscape watercolour painting; and, the father / son duo, Tom and William Forrestall, are back to help students master the centuries old art of egg tempera painting. 
LSA ceramics instructor Marla Benton is onboard with LSA Programs Director, Douglas Bamford, and his initiative ‘Bowl-O-Rama’, a ceramics course, which supports LSA’s biennial fundraiser, ‘Ramp It Up’, for the Second Story Women’s Centre.
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”, said Pablo Picasso. We agree! Jason Skinner along with Marla Benton will facilitate 5 days of fun-filled activity for our Youth Art Week.
Multidisciplinary artist and printmaker, Maria Doering, will cover the joys of screen-printing on paper with a focus on creating colourful imagery by using hand-cut stencils and screen filler.
To end our School’s fifth summer season, Assistant Professor of Architecture at Dalhousie University, Roger Mullin, will be leading a three day workshop on the Architecture of Landscape before heading back to his teaching schedule at Dal.
"It’s going to be a very special summer at the LSA. We are very excited about our diverse and inclusive program of workshops. We feel we have something for students of all ages and experience", says Douglas Bamford, volunteer Programs Director.

(Required: ½ bag of cone 6 clay and a few basic tools, can be purchased at the NPG)              

This eight week class will focus on the process of building a three dimensional clay figure. 
The first class will include familiarizing oneself with the techniques and tools of building up a 3D form followed by 3 classes of working from a live figure.  Students will then work independently and create their own sculpture with input from the instructor in regard to anatomy and to hollow, reassemble and consider the surface in preparation for firing.  After several weeks of drying, the class will reunite to discuss final finishes for the fired piece.
