HSTA Welcomes Area High School for Silk Screening and Landscape Painting

May 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

A group of eager high school students made the beautiful journey to us yesterday to explore the craft of silk-screening and landscape painting.

Fibre artist, Elisha Barlow, took the students through the amazing process of creating screens, using a light table, rinsing, squeegee-ing, and stenciling. Many of the students wore their amazing pieces home at the end of the day!

The other half of the group enjoyed an all-day landscape drawing & painting workshop, led by Matt Mancini (soon to be this week’s Artist of the Week). Practice in the morning with pencil and paper was followed up by applying acrylic to canvas after lunch resulting in some truly beautiful creations.

Browse through the images below to see the amazing work of these talented students!

Join in the fun at the Team Recruitment Night, this coming Tues. April 10th, to create your own luminaries for the Relay For Life event coming up in June in Haliburton.

EVENT – I Made It! Student Show and Sale

March 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

I Made It! Student Show and Sale

What, you ask, is a student Show and Sale? Exactly what it sounds like.

That’s right. It’s an event that gives students an opportunity to both exhibit and sell their work (not always in that combination).

Students work very hard over the course of their programs here at the college, and we want the world to see just how talented they are. The week preceding the show, students organize their displays, and begin the set-up process of creating this fantastic event. They then play host to over 250 guests that stroll through our halls to view their work.

The family-friendly event allows for art enthusiasts of all ages to drop in. Light refreshments keep your palette happy, and musical talent provided by Alec Morrison will keep your feet tapping!

Join us on Saturday, April 21st from 10am til 2pm at the Haliburton Campus! Admission is free.

Come early for the best pickings!

*Please note: If you wish to purchase any pieces from the students, it is a “cash only” event. The students DO NOT accept Interac, Visa, Mastercard, AmEx, Discover, cheque, or First Borns. (It’s possible the jewellery students might accept gold bars in trade…)

Enjoy this gallery of pics from our Dec 2011 Show & Sale!
