NOTE: All the teachers are back at Kensington Art Supply as of September so we are back to using one classroom.  Due to social distancing rules, each class is limited to 7 students.  To make the same number of 14 spots available, there will be a morning class (9 am-noon) and the usual afternoon class (1-4 pm).  The same subject matter for that day will be taught in each class.  Please make sure you sign up for the time slot you are after!

Covid 19 information: We will be social distancing with a max of 7 students per room.  Participants are expected to use hand sanitizers, and good social distancing protocols.  Masks are required per city bylaw. There will not be coffee service at this time.  We will strive to provide a safe atmosphere.

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Geerts started her professional art career with a move to the West coast in 1987. After exploring many materials she fell in love with acrylic painting and has been working in the medium ever since. In 2000, Geerts moved to Calgary, Alberta and was able to devote more time to creating art. Geerts continues to work in her first passion, acrylic painting, but now devotes equal time to discovering the possibilities in sculpture.
