A word about isafa and how it works...

 Within the haven of the The Artist Leagues and Art Clubs, students all work as creatives using all forms of inspiration and disciplines to make their youthful masterpieces. Since the nature of art making is a deeply personal experience, there is a tendency to isolate ourselves from the public at large. Therefore, I make it my mission to create opportunities for them to showcase their efforts in public spaces. These include, The Annual Christmas Party Show & Sale, ISAFA Coffee Shop Shows for 5, 3 week-long displays. The Annual Summertime Youth Art Market has happened every single June since 2014 and next years' is set for Saturday, June 22nd from 12:30 - 3:30 at the Okotoks Elks Hall. ​And the Summer Art Campers put on mini art shows on Fridays! Put simply, when your kids/tweens/teens join any ISAFA Programs, everyone becomes a member of The Inspiration Studio Academy of Fine Art!! Subscribers to my regular newsletter, will provide you with many great arts opportunities in and around the Foothills area all for free:) 

Sneak a peek at previous and current creations on the Inspirations Studio's Official Facebook Page and Instagram account to see just what artsy antics these lucky kids get to do! 

With Leonardo da Vinci as my ultimate art hero from the past, I draw my strength and inspiration from him, his genius, his love of the earth, animals and of course his fascinating and awe-inspiring creations that are STILL teaching us so much. I am an arts advocate for those interested in discovering and mastering their in-born artist! Fine art lessons and art camps are HOW I share my love for art, art-making and the encouragement of creative self expression.  LEARNING while living our LIVES through the arts is a life well lived. "Artists Are Cultural Heroes" is our first motto, hashtag and official statement. Without creative thoughts and innovative action, there would be no progress for us as a species. Artists create the art, and the art itself stands the test of time, allowing artists to leave behind a legacy living beyond our physical lives. Which leads me to our second motto of, "We Are Artists, Not Mere Mortals". 

I invite you to scroll through his Seven Principles of Learning seen above. All students who grace the space of the Inspiration Studio inadvertently learn through them.

Artist Leagues Tuesdays & Thursdays 

The young creatives registered in the Artist Leagues, are those who really have a versatile sense of creativity, and could easily be planning a career in the visual arts. Therefore, they follow an age-appropriate pre-college-inspired, program that covers a wide variety of 2D & 3D disciplines. These include different forms of sculpture, painting, drawing, felting, calligraphy, printmaking, jewelry, graphic design, art history and the fabric arts are newest to the Studio! Art history or learning how art materials have developed over time, how they mix and don't mix are a HUGE learning curve which is extremely valuable part of art education. Much freedom is given to explore mediums during the creative process  through specific projects. Special Guests (local, professional artists) and Walking Field Trips are carefully planned events that relate directly to their current arts unit. League Members learn about their local community, by meeting local business owners. Physical interaction is paramount as they evolve into young adults learning how to talk about their art and why they make it. League Members enjoy working at their own pace at their own individual workstations. Older students will have the opportunity to build an entrance portfolio, an online inventory and will begin to learn how to write their artist statements for post secondary education.

Art Clubs: Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridayz

As a club, these creative kids, tweens and teens will enjoy working at their own pace at their own individual workstations and also work on team projects. Art history education allows for an opportunity to learn just how creative people have shaped our world. When registrations come in, parents are asked for their prodigies' top interests since their programs are custom-built around these. Regardless of interests however, drawing, collage, alcohol-based markers, printmaking, painting, clay, cardboard and paper mache sculpture and many others are incorporated into these programs. Because science and art are truly interconnected, an understanding of what their art materials are made of and how they mix or don't mix is often discussed when creating mixed media creations!
