Print-making, collage, basketry anyone? The Municipality of Pontiac has funded nine free art lessons in Luskville, Quyon and Breckenridge to sate your artistic appetite this fall. Five teachers from local group Get Art will be teaching a variety of creative skills in three hour lessons over three Saturday afternoons in October. The classes are free and all materials and tools are provided.

Alcohol-based inks are a fantastically fluid way to make beautiful, unusual images: special inks float on a sheen of rubbing alcohol spread over a remarkable kind of plastic paper.

Artist Trading Cards are mini-masterpieces, little cards decorated in every kind of way: painted, collaged, printed or sewn... the sky is the limit. Make as many as you like and trade at the end of class.

Scratchcard is so simple and so much fun. Instead of adding lines to paper, students scratch and scribble away the surface of the card to create all kinds of images and effects.
