This past Saturday, students from the Artist Blacksmithing, Fibre Arts, Visual Arts Fundamentals: Drawing and Painting, Photo Arts and Ceramics Certificates participated in the biannual Art Exhibition (formerly the Student Show & Sale.) There was so much talent and hardwork on display – congratulations to all of our students!

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!

Here are the pics from our very popular first EVER Student Easter Egg Hunt! Let’s hope events like this continue…
Who do you think found the “Golden Egg”? (The “Golden Goose” this year was unavailable due to scheduling conflicts, but perhaps next year she’ll make an appearance…)

Once again, the Haliburton School of The Arts played host to another high school – this one from the GTA.
They pioneered our first soapstone carving workshop with Kim Warne of Soundings Studio, and explored the techniques of felting, both wet and dry.
Have a browse through the gallery to see the abounding creativity these students brought to the table…

Create a Luminary, Fight Cancer
RSVP by 4pm April 9th with Julia Donnelly @ 705.286.1444
If you’re looking for a great night out with a good cause, we have the answer for you!
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.
As artists, we are constantly exposing ourselves to different carcinogens. We use scary solvents, inhale toxic fumes, breathe dust, and experiment with unusual substances.
By supporting cancer research, we help to identify cures and treatments, as well as various causes.
Click the pdf link below for all the information you need about the upcoming Luminary night!
Don’t miss it!

I Made It! Student Show and Sale
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.
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!
