Hello 2019! The Artist Collective Studio is alive and well. Our core 4 artists are Nichole Yanota, Crystal Leach, Kari Lehr, and Tony Partridge. We have been hibernating in our studio space this winter, focused and ready for the opportunities and challenges ahead. We are planning our new year and reflecting on the past year. What worked, what didn't, what we want to say "yes" to, and what we need to say "no" to more often. You know what it's like ;)
Our vision for the studio had shifted during 2018 . With our energy being pulled more directly into our artwork, we lapsed in our offering of workshops and other events to our community. We have seen our lives grow busy with commitments and exhibitions, with apprenticeships and expansion and learning new mediums. There are plenty of other organizations in our community who have been diligently hosting wonderful creative events for people to participate in. Visit our "CREATE" page where we've listed a Directory for creative go-to's! We'll miss our workshop-hosting days - learning, playing and mingling with our friends and neighbours in the comfort of our own studio. Thank you to all of you who joined in the fun over the past years. We will still be participating in the open studio days during the Artists Studio Tour.
Hello CNP! We are bringing Courtney back to inspire our community once again! I've seen first-hand how she sparks change in those around her - she is truly the fuel that will ignite action and awaken that dream you've been sitting on or those desires you've neglected for far too long ;) We all need a little nudge or guidance from time to time. Join us for an uplifting morning! Secure your seat for the 3 hours that could CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER by contacting the Artist Collective Studio or Courtney directly.
*N*E*X*T* up at the studio: Multicolour Linocut Workshop with Barbara Ann Hession! Get ready to dig into *layered!* linocut projects, because this one is all about colour. We know you love stamp-carving, so we're gonna take it to the next level and get you the inside scoop on how the pros do it! Join us for a day of printmaking with Barbara Ann (and her supercool printing press)!
The Artist Collective Studio and Crowsnest Pass Allied Arts Association have teamed up with Certified Life Mastery Coach, Courtney Cann, to offer our community a (! FREE !) workshop dedicated to CREATING your life by DESIGN (rather than by default).
Courtney is a friend of the Studio, passionate educator, and inspirer of many! I've seen her work creating sparks in people across our community, proving that with a little guidance and the proper motivation, we really can create positive change in our lives.
We hope you'll join us for an uplifting morning workshop on March 25th at the Studio. You can sign up with us or contact Courtney directly (space is limited).
Happy New Year, friends! We are shaking off our holiday hangovers and getting back into the studio - and we'd love for you to join us! We'll be OPEN on Friday night, January 20th, from 6-9pm for some creative play and catch-up with you all! Grab your latest project or come with your next scrap of inspiration, and we'll get you going! Let's do this!
*W*O*R*K*S*H*O*P*! We're so excited for this next workshop with Kimberly artist, Athena Knibbs of Quill Hand Printed Textiles! Who wouldn't love to hand-make stamps and one-of-a-kind wears?! Join us for workshop fun in October!
A crowd favorite is coming back! Justina Smith!
This time she'll be taking you out into some lovely Crowsnest Pass natural settings to show you how she creates her beautiful travel journals!
Call, email or message me on here to sign up for this outdoor artsy adventure!
The May 7 & 8 weekend Artists Studio Tour of Crowsnest Pass and Area was a screaming success! We loved chatting with all those who visited our studio ... but as Monday rolls around it is time to get back to work! No rest for this crew!
*C*R*E*A*T*I*V*E**W*R*I*T*I*N*G* Workshop with our local wonderwoman, Lynnette Jessop! Lynnette does it all - from writing to welding, clay to painting, and everything in between... if it's creative, she's had her hands in it! Get inspired by her vibrant, experimental nature in this inclusive and supportive workshop focused on learning and growth. Challenging and loads of fun, "Spark" is designed to ignite Your Story, Your Voice"! (and at only $20/person, this one is an absolute steal!)
Artist Studio Tour of Crowsnest Pass and Area is ready to launch. We are so thrilled that there will be twenty eight talented artists taking part in this tour. Check out who is involved at www.cnpstudiotour.ca.
