Published on: September 13, 2021

Virtual Mixed Media Art Classes will be offered this fall via google classroom. Instructor Marybeth Dirks will be teaching Grades 1-3 on Saturdays from 10:30 am – 11:30 am. The course will run from September 18 – mid March. The Grade 4-6 class will run from 9:00 am – 10:00 am on Saturdays from September 18 until mid March. Cost for the art course is $399 and includes all the supplies your child will need.

SOFA art students will study famous artists from history and be inspired to create their own work in those styles! Students will get to explore a large variety of media including drawing, painting, clay, felt work, collage, oil pastel and block printing. Students will grow and gain experience with new mediums while paying homage to the past.

Marybeth Dirks is a working artist who specializes in abstracted acrylic paintings. Her current work explores themes of prairie landscape and structures. Dirks has worked with children teaching art and counselling at Red Rock Bible camp and directing summer day camps with the Pembina Trails School Division. More recently she has worked as a docent and directed Spring Break Kids Art Camps with the Winnipeg Art Gallery. She has also developed and instructed new adult workshops and programs with the Winnipeg Art Gallery. She thrives on dreaming up new projects that encourage exploration and creativity.
