Kootenay Artists’ Teaching at the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts
Artists Deborah Thompson & Natasha Smith are teaching as part of the 2017 Metchosin International Summer School for the Arts (MISSA).
The MISSA campus is located in a British Columbia rain forest, on the West coast of Canada. The campus, with its dorms and classrooms are sheltered among old growth trees, perched alongside the Salish Sea. The beauty of the natural environment makes for a magical place to gather almost 400 artists every summer to live and work in community and be inspired.
The MISSA has a reputation of offering transformative learning experiences through instruction by a local, national and international faculty of practicing artists. Specialized courses are designed for professional artists, teachers and serious adult students. Participants have options to stay on or off campus, and course fees include daytime meals (lunch and two snacks) and supply fees are unique to each course. You can take one course or back to back courses.
” I am very excited about spending time teaching at MISSA, it offers a unique, creative experience for both instructors and students.” says artist/instructor Natasha Smith.
Smith is offering a 5 day workshop in the first week of MISSA June 26 – June 30: Collage Painting: Visual Storytelling. For more information or to register: https://missa.ca/workshop/collage-painting-visual-storytelling/
