Course Description

Learn to apply your painting skills to white china or refine your technique with the Brock House Porcelain Painters. We use powdered mineral colours which are ground into an oil base and then applied to china which is fired in the Brock House kiln. Our painters produce quality pieces for their own pleasure and for sale at Society fundraisers. Supplies are available to get you started and we can recommend sources for your specific needs. We take pleasure in helping each other and guiding beginners. Come and enjoy a lovely art form with experienced peers!

Course Description

Do you remember the joy of flipping through the old National Geographic and other magazines and cutting out pictures that had meaning for you as a keepsake? Did you then ever attempt to make them into a memorable theme by gluing them to a board for some kind of formal presentation.


If you did...well how about returning to College .......oh sorry... Collage and exploring this concept in more depth and see where it takes you both creatively and artistically.


Collage is a unique technique used in modern art and art therapy to explore the idea of connected imagery and as such can promote very personal expression and statements of self-interest.


So, bring any of those old magazines that you may still have, along with a pair of scissors to our new program. If you don't have material it will be supplied along with glue sticks for the final assembly.


Coffee, tea and cookies will also be provided to encourage social engagement.


So, let's start exploring together and see where it takes us. Hope to see you there. — Peter Phillips

For those of you who enrolled in this class last Fall, I'm sorry it had to be cancelled part way through due to Covid restrictions. I hope you'll join us again for the full course. - Phillip.
