  ART CLASSES FOR ADULTS
We are four artists who have taught drawing and painting to adults in a variety of settings over many years. Three of us taught classes in the Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Adult Education Department, run by the School Board. When the newly amalgamated HRM School Board cancelled the adult education program, we decided to continue on our own. We found a new home in the Christ Church Hall, thanks to their many supportive parishoners, and we've been able to provide a program similar to that which we had been offering previously. This includes both afternoon and evening classes, in ten-week sessions, and Saturday workshops.

We vary somewhat in our approaches, but we share our dedication to high quality and seriousness of intent. We relate what students are doing to the larger world of art-making. We try to help each student develop individuality of style, as well as "visual literacy" and a solid foundation in technique. We respect each person's learning pace and differing aims.
