This summer Oxygen Art Centre is offering two adult education intensives: ‘Painting and Drawing with Deborah Thompson’ July 23 – 26 and ‘Zero to Sixty Ukulele Intensive’ July 30 – August 3.

Explore the relationship between drawing and painting and expand your skills in Deborah Thompson’s four-day intensive. Through a series of exercises students will explore how to gather visual information while learning the fundamentals of light and form, pictorial space and colour theory. The four days will include critiques and discussion and students will be encouraged to pursue self-directed painting projects.

Have you always wanted to play the Ukulele? Well this ‘Zero to Sixty Ukulele Intensive’ is for you! Learn the basics of how to tune, hold and strum followed by some simple chords and strumming patterns. By the end of the course you’ll have some catchy songs under your belt to share around the campfire.

Whatever you are planning this summer make space to be creative. Sign up now as spots are limited. For more information go to
