"The job of an educator is to teach students to see the vitality in themselves."
                                    -Joseph Campbell
As we get older and go through the motions of everyday life, many of us leave behind our favourite activities and forget to play. You know the drill: Wake up. Go to work. Run errands. Come home. Have dinner. Watch T.V. Go to bed. Rinse. Repeat.
Sometimes we need a reminder that creativity can bring a lot of joy into our lives - if we let it.

Winter is a great time to reconnect with that buried sense of play with a slew of fun and playful courses to reignite your creativity. There are wet felting classes, jewellery, image transfer classes, glass fusion, and tons of painting and drawing options for visual artists. The sky is the limit! As always, we've assembled a team of talented Artist instructors to lead, coach and teach and they are all eager to help you unleash your inner artist!

Also, as added inspiration, let us remind you that we will be having our Studio Soiree at the 
Peterborough gallery on Friday, January 4, 6 - 9pm  
and 
Thursday January 10, in Port Perry from 6 - 9pm.

What's a Studio Soiree you ask? It's a party! It's a night where we celebrate our students and instructors, show off their work, drink a glass of wine, sample some goodies and have loads of fun. This is a great opportunity to come down and see the fruits of our student's labour. We'd love to see you! Come get inspired......
Join META4 instructors and students at our semi-annual open houses for an inspired evening of show and tell.

See details below about bringing in your work to show!



Calling all META4 students!
Show off your work as part of Studio Soiree
Now's the time to bring your pieces in.

Did you take a course or workshop this year? It's time to show off your wonderful work during our semi-annual student show. And what's a show without a party! 

Here's what you need to know:
 
Step 1: Choose & prepare your Work
Bring up to 2 pieces in any media, something you created in an adult class or as the result of a class you took at META4.
Be sure to label your work with your name and please have it ready to hang or display. That means a wire on your painting or some kind of mounting board for works on paper.
 
Step 2: Deliver your work
Bring your work to Peterborough anytime until January 3. 
Bring your work to Port Perry anytime until January 6.  
 
Please note, the Port Perry location will be closed to the public on January 2 & 3 for our annual "spruce up", however you can still drop off your pieces. Just knock on the door.  Both locations will be closed on January 1st. 
 
Step 3: Come to the Party!
Not just one, but two parties!  
Studio Soiree Peterborough - Friday, January 4, 6-9 pm
