Series Summer Arts School 2017

Experienced and amateur artists from across Alberta and beyond will soon arrive at Red Deer College to immerse themselves in week-long visual arts courses. From July 10 to August 4, participants will enjoy personal growth and professional development as they pursue their crafts in a wide variety of mediums.

For 34 years, Series Summer Arts School has provided a wealth of artistic opportunities, with a strong mix of new courses and returning favourites. This year’s courses include painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media, calligraphy, beadmaking, jewelry and metalsmithing, ceramics, glass, literary arts, bronze casting, antler carving and more. Students may choose to participate either in week-long workshops or in one-day workshops offered on July 22, which will allow people to try different artistic offerings.

As a returning highlight, Series Summer Arts School is pleased to feature Instructor Presentations on Tuesday evenings, where instructors share images of their work with students. In addition, Student Showcases will also be held, where students display the work they have created while attending Series. These Showcase events will be held from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday July 13, 20 and 27, as well as August 3, in RDC’s FarSide Bar & Grill on main campus (100 College Boulevard). Members of the public and media are invited to attend these weekly free events.

Series offers students an artistic summer adventure filled with workshops in a variety of mediums. In addition to the Instructor Presentations and Student Showcases, participants can also attend social activities, open model sessions, open studios and partnered receptions with the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery in the evenings to connect with other likeminded artists in the Series community.
