Bridge over cultural divide

Jim Budge will offer his expertise in shooting and editing beginner or advanced videos. Local musician and world recording artist, Kibwe, will show students how to record and program music on the their own CD which they will take home at the conclusion of the course. Whistler Dance Society Artistic Director, Trina Eby, invites all to sample techniques from five dance disciplines. Other workshops being offered include photography and darkroom printing, clown characterization, balloon sculpting, hand lettering, miniature keepsake books, handmade cards, a crash course in drama for teens, the art of airbrushing, an open discussion and demonstration with artist Lyle MacDonald and a lesson in acrylics with Mike Svob.

Svob will also be the subject of an Artist’s Dinner where he will illustrate his work and artistic career path in a slide show.

"This is the first time we’ve done the dinner, and (Mike Svob) has a good story to tell," says Savage. ‘He’s a successful B.C. artist. Imagine going from telling your wife ‘honey, I’m going to paint’, to unveiling your work before royalty. He’s going to show his development, so it’s sort of like a little workshop on how to become an artist and how to make it work."

If you prefer something a little more leisurely — and free — you’re invited to enjoy guided art walk tours, an interactive art zone for six- to 12-year-olds and daily street performers including lessons in clown history and make up application with Tickles.

Space is limited at the dinner and workshops. For information on prices and registration contact the Arts Council.
