Shabui Studio’s temperate teachers guide artists of all ages through the practices of drawing, painting, printmaking, and other media. In art classes for ages 5–7 and 8–12, children demonstrate that making art is a human instinct and that motor skills and inner tranquility can benefit from applying small, glops of paint to paper. During the introductory expressive-arts-therapy session for kids and adults, clients draw, paint, make collages, or work in mixed media, then team up with a qualified counsellor to explore what art can do for personal issues such as pain, trauma, anxiety, or depression. An accommodating class schedule allows clients to start slinging materials almost any day of the week.
Lessons take place in a gleaming studio with warm natural light, picture-perfect views, and hardwood floors. Before or after class, or while waiting for one’s artist-in-residence to finish daubing, a postsmock stroll in historic downtown Abbotsford presents an artistic experience unto itself.
