Even if you miss the actual Grand Opening of the new Cavan Art Gallery and Academy, you can still check out the newest addition to the local art scene.

After five decades in art, Valerie Kent is fulfilling her dream of launching an art gallery and studio. She’s been an artist for 50 years, has a bachelor of fine arts from Concordia University, a masters of fine arts from University of Iowa, and was an art teacher with the Toronto School Board for 21 years. She retired in 2012.

“I’d love to see this part of the world become a real art hub, a real place where people congregate to see art and do art.” The new Cavan Art Gallery and Academy is certainly helping to do just that.

The ground floor houses the actual gallery with local and national art works on display. The studio on the second floor is used for teaching art workshops, courses, painting evenings, summer camps for kids and even corporate team building events.

If you have always wanted to uncover your artistic side, this is your opportunity. Classes are designed for all levels from beginners to experienced artists including a variety of mediums from watercolors to acrylics to oils.

If you have a child between the ages of 6 and 13, the Gallery has a new and exciting camp starting the first week of July and running all summer long.

Kids can draw, paint, sculpt, print or work on a collage. They can work in watercolour, pastels, acrylics, pencil crayons, inks… Camp will also include weekly themes, singing, story time, games, face painting and more. Art supplies are included.

There are morning sessions, Monday to Friday from 9:30 to 12:30 or afternoon sessions from 1:30 to 4:30 – all for $150 a week.

For teens 15 and up, the academy offers evening classes geared towards helping the teen develop their portfolio.

They’ll do printmaking, sketching, drawing, painting, and sculpting and prepare portfolios for post-secondary art programs.

Retired Lakefield College School art teacher Linda Warren is leading the teen program.
