Artgrid art classes are designed to help children develop creative thinking abilities as they learn important techniques to tap into their imagination. Each lesson is tailored to improve students' technical skill in drawing, painting, and 3-D to 2-D representation to foster a freedom of expression.
Through the study of various art movements in art history, including Cubism, Impressionism, Expressionism, and Surrealism, students learn from old masters and modern artists to form their own unique artistic style. Students explore mediums such as acrylic, watercolour, charcoal, and pastels.
Vinkie Lau is an art historian and modern art painter trained in classical art since a young age. Upon completing her studies in art history from the University of Toronto, she finds strong interests in the modern aesthetics and has since been producing work that embodies the formalist attitudes.
As an art instructor at the Lake Wilcox Art Studio in Oak Ridges, she is constantly surprised by the growing creative spirit of her students and hopes to be a continual inspiration for them.
