Artist Nicole Yanota addresses the audience at The Arts Station opening about her experiences as an artist.

Workshops a great success

A visual arts show opening at the Arts Station on July 30 seen as success by those involved.

The opening of the visual arts show at the Arts Station gallery based on two workshops, one given by Kari Lehr and the other given by Nichole Yanota, took place on Thursday July 30.

“We are so fortunate to have such great artists willing to share their expertise,” said local artist and workshop participant Pat Moore. “I enjoyed the camaraderie, experience and support we received from one another as well as teachers.”

The group gathers on Monday evenings in the summer and on Tuesday afternoons in the winter.

The two workshops were entirely different with Kari sharing her expertise on colour texture and collage as well as other stimulating art, while Nicole shared her experience with portraits and pencil art.

“Workshops develop your art,” said Moore. “If you are going to be an artist you have to take workshops.”
