Fine Arts

ArtWaves offers a variety of courses for students who are interested in building and strengthening their skills in drawing, painting and sculpting.  Our teachers are all working artists who have trained with highly regarded teachers at renowned institutions.

Drop in figure drawing

Figure drawing is a staple of the fine arts curricula.  We offer two drop-in sessions with live models each week -- Monday evenings from 6:00 to 9:00pm and Thursday mid-day from 12:30 to 2:30pm.  These sessions are open to all. 


This course will take you through the drawing process step by step, beginning with what materials to use and how to use them, to fun drawing exercises designed to train your eye and your hand to draw what you see.

Modelling the figure

This course is a 7 week class taught by France Hilbert. She will teach you how to sculpt anatomical structure from a live model.
