As part of its mandate to provide high quality arts education programming for
community members and visitors to Dawson, KIAC offered dozens of educational
opportunities during 2015. Most courses and workshops were delivered on site in
KIAC’s classroom, music studio, or ballroom.
From encouraging the development of six-year-old children to fulfilling the lifelong
dreams of 70-year-olds, the educational offerings found fertile ground, with 300+
participants in 35+ courses.
The year we celebrated the International Craft Year, with a focus on craft related
courses. We also looked to ongoing artist development by creating a silk screening club
so that artists could carry on after participating in a silk screening workshop. A diverse
offering of courses covered the gamut of art forms, including: mosaics, watercolours,
painting, drawing, piano, guitar, media arts, dance, and writing.
