Inspiration Studio Art Camps & Events
 

When you join the ISAFA Family, you will soon find that we are a busy bunch of artists! 

All students in all programs have participated in the Okotoks Art Gallery's Gingerbread Station contest for three years straight. 2023 was our third year where candy becomes decoration, gingerbread is construction materials, icing is glue. UNTIL the last day-- that's when the Team Captains would decree which elements are deemed edible:) After completion, their team creations have been transported to the Okotoks Art Gallery for voting.

 

We have a Christmas Youth Market & Party at the Okotoks Elks Hall, every year for the past 12 years now

Our NEWEST initiative is our ISAFA Coffee Shop Shows where all programs get to create art for local business from January - June. Plans are in the works to expand on this initiative for the fall of 2024:) 

Summertime Youth Market happened with PIZAZZ on June 22, 12:30 - 3:30. TOTALLY FREE. Bring EVERYONE you know! 

ART CAMPS are next: Dinosaur Discovery Art Camp _-one spot open until July 5th at 8:00pm and Dragons & Mysticism Art Camp Magic - THREE spots left until July 18th! 

 

And then we start all over again, with our 2024 Christmas Youth Market where the Selfie Station and Mug Shots -- is SO MUCH FUN! 

Upcoming Events NOW until July!

A CASTLE of the Arts was created in 2021 in my garage over the course of 4 months:) 

THE four towers represent INNOVATION, FUNCTIONALITY, LITERARY Art and EXPRESSION. Cardboard, styrofoam, reclaimed wallpaper, carpet tube rolls, spools, deck railings, 3D printing spools, keyboard membranes, plumbing tubes,  packing materials, tv boxes, cat toys, brushes, pencils, feathers, costumes, and painting, glue, tape and corrugated plastic.  It served the local baking shop 94 Take the Cake as an outdoor mini venue for kids and big kids to learn more about how the Arts have shaped our civilizations from July 17 - August 28th during the Town of Okotoks Nooks & Crannies Festival. It lasted all the way into early October and was used for four other events! And a few elements are still in use. 

Take a peek at the carousel of how it all came together through still shots - videos - kids and teens helping, decorating...and how it found a new purpose  as a backdrop for league and Art Club art shows!
