Have you ever wondered how ceramics are made? Or what linocut printmaking is? How do you paint with watercolours? What type of pencils should you use for an illustration? Or have you always wanted to try a new art medium? Your opportunity is here!

Join us for the Ottawa School of Art’s 3rd Annual Open house, to showcase the many different courses, workshops and programs we offer at our great school. Join us at our main campus for a full afternoon of art making! Meet some of our instructors and get a sense of what you can expect when you take a course at the Ottawa School of Art.

There will be information, live demos and workshops in a variety of artistic fields, showcasing some of what you could expect from a class here at the OSA.

The event will include short demos/workshops:

· Printmaking with Rob Hinchley

· Ceramics with Megan Pethick

· Children’s programming with Gerard Bélec & Deidre Hierlihy

· Sculpture with Maria Moldovan

· Watercolour Painting with Yulia Lisitsyna

· Fine Arts Diploma Info and Life Drawing with Andrew Fay

· Drawing with Jayne Couch

· Illustration with Maya Hum

· Dark Room Photography with Edward Murray

· And OSA’s Printmaking Roller Derby! We will be printing large scale prints with an asphalt roller just behind The Hudson’s Bay!

In this case bigger is better! Artists take to the streets for large scale print making! Experience the art of steamroller printmaking from some of Ottawa’s most talented printmakers as they add a flare of hype to conventional methods.

Come participate! Come check out our specialty studios, chat with Instructors, bring your kids, leave with a piece of art that you created!

It’s going to be a fun filled day of “Teaching Art to Everyone!” something we do every day

Illumnaata “All Together”

Ottawa School of Art’s Community Mural Celebration

Illunaata, meaning “all together” in Inuktituk, is a celebration of Canadian imagery and community through the medium of paint. To mark this momentous year, The Ottawa School of Art (OSA) partnered with Ottawa 2017, Ottawa Community Housing (OCH), and the Embassy of Imagination (EOI) to create a series of murals that are universally accessible, promote diversity, respect, positivity, and speak to OSA’s motto, “Teaching Art to everyone” by sharing art with everyone!

I was so honoured to be asked to lead one of the murals for this project. Thank-you to my assistant, Jasmine, and to the youth from the neighborhood for all your hard work in helping me paint this wall. A special thanks to the Ottawa School of Art and the Lowertown community for giving me this opportunity and to my partner in crime for helping me paint, carry, and push my scaffolding around!

Thank-you to friends, family, and community members and representatives for coming to the unveiling, I had a wonderful time! …And for the cake, the cake was delicious 😛
