As an artist and an art educator, my goal has always been to build a creative community. After graduating from the Fine Arts department at the University of Victoria, I began a career in teaching art classes, facilitating workshops and hosting retreats. Poppet Creative is the accumulation of years of insight into the artistic needs of our community. Our philosophy is strongly based on process - driven art making for all ages. In this, we strive to emphasize the doing of art, rather than the outcome. Process driven art will allow you to open yourself to the possibilities of creative intuition and release you of the insecurities around making "perfect" art. We have classes that are more technical and geared towards beginners, as well as classes and workshops for those experienced who would like to further their practice. We also host drop in classes for toddlers, life drawing and open studio.
Poppet teachers are the best in town. All are working artists and all support and love sharing their knowledge with you. Read more about our teachers here.
We can't wait to get messy with you all!
