Due to the first cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa, I have decided to cancel my events for the month of March. I will re-evaluate the situation on a weekly basis and might consider offering online workshops, something that I have used successfully to teach German. So far, I have resisted the move to teach art online but might change my mind as it is important to make room for art in this stressful time. We have to make sure that we do not isolate ourselves completely from each other. Zoom, Skype, Facebook and not to forget our phones offer ways to keep in contact. Please refer to the City of Ottawa cancellations with regard to any City of Ottawa programmes.

NEW: free weekly online meetings Fridays, at 3:30 pm for 40 minutes

This is the time to connect  – even when we are isolating ourselves in our homes.  If there is enough interest for a longer meeting, I will adjust the time accordingly. We will all work on our own creative projects from the comfort of our own homes. Please contact me for the link to the Zoom meeting.

NEW: 40 minute online Art & Crafts Projects, every Wednesday, at 3 pm and a repeat on Saturdays, at 11 am, $5/household

I will prepare a new project every week that we will work on together.  Once you have registered, I will send you a link for the live 40-minute session. I will be using the Zoom platform. To make sure that you do not have to go out hunting for materials, I will pick items that most people have in their home. The crafts will be suitable for adults and children.

Reviews:

“Kerstin Peters’s workshops have helped me to become very creative.  Kerstin is a multi-talented artist who loves art and people.   In my case, she helped me see my potential, become more confident and daring as I learned and experimented.  That is an amazing gift!  Expressing myself through art (painting, collage, felting, mixed media) and enjoying art generally now enriches my daily life.”
Francine (young retiree)

 

“I love Kerstin’s artworks. I have attended a few of her short workshops & love her versatility in so many different mediums. I have found a couple of things I really enjoy.”
