COMMUNITY EDUCATION

There are a lot of new and exciting programs happening at Harcourt House this year! The Art Bus Tours have been a great success and the last one for the season is September 14th from 12:30-5:30pm. It’s a great way to visit galleries and get the inside scoop on the art. The participants for September’s bus tour are DC3, VASA, Art Gallery of St. Albert and Harcourt House Gallery. Look for the Art Bus Tours to start again in June of 2014.
In October we are also offering a Critique Group. Bring your artwork and your critical eye and help create a discourse on the art being made in Edmonton. These will happen the first Wednesday of every month from 7-9pm.

For more information on any of these programs or others offered by Harcourt House visit www.harcourthouse.ab.ca or call Stacey Cann, Community Education Coordinator at 780.426.4180.
