On June 8, we gathered at the Chinese Cultural Centre in Gastown, to celebrate all the amazing winners of the 2019 China lnternational Children’s Cartoon Competition – Canada Division.

There was a great turnout to this event, and friends and parents were able to see all the winners’ work on display. During the awards ceremony winning students received their awards, including Gemma, our Globe Special Excellence Winner, Gemma Yin, Age 11!

Jazz Themed
Kerrisdale Paint Night

Last month we had another super fun Kerrisdale Paint Night. Art can often be inspired by great music. So this time we decided to paint musicians lost in their own art – the art of music! The paintings turned out beautifully!

Thank you to everyone who came out to share in the fun!


Student Art

Acrylic Techniques


Drawing & Sketching

A cartoon character comes to life! Students capture Pinocchio in 3D form with light and shadows. Now he’s a real boy!


Still Life Drawing

Students tackled the challenge of drawing a real deer skull and antlers from life. They rose to the occasion of this challenge to create amazing and colorful pastel works of art!


Life Drawing

Students mixed it up by switching to drawing a Darth Vader model in white on black paper, focussing on rendering highlights rather than shadows.


Mixed Media

The new semester starts off with a fragrant spring theme. Students pick a variety of spring elements from many resources to create their own unique composition. Then, they use a mixture of acrylic paint, Sharpie pens, palette knives and brushes to make their painting come to life.
