Shabui Studio’s temperate teachers guide new and experienced artists through the practices of drawing, painting, printmaking, and other media. An accommodating class schedule allows part-time artists to start slinging materials almost any day of the week. Instruction takes place in a gleaming studio with warm natural light, picture-perfect views, and hardwood floors so attractive artists may be tempted to render them as a still-life subject. Shabui means “more than meets the eye,” and noses and ears will soon remember that making artwork is as pleasing a sensory experience as eating an entire Thanksgiving meal with the toes. Those who haven’t held a paintbrush in a light year will appreciate the Shabui conviction that every human knows instinctively how to draw and paint, which also goes for a few lucky platypuses. Children’s motor skills and inner calm can benefit from applying even the smallest glop of paint on paper.
Before or after class, or while waiting for one’s artist-in-residence to finish daubing, a stroll in historic downtown Abbotsford presents an artistic experience unto itself (no smock required).
