Classes & Workshops

Art at Hooper Studios 

encompasses working studios, art school as well as a Gallery and is located in the Kennebecasis Valley in Hampton, New Brunswick. From April to December, Hooper Studios offers classes and workshops in visual arts and crafts, for adults, teens and children. Children’s programs are designed to provide young people, ages 5 through 14, with an opportunity for creative exploration and experience in a non-competitive, friendly atmosphere. The school offers intensive studio-based workshops in a variety of fine art and craft media including clay, paint, metals, paper, printmaking, woodworking and more. Programs range from evening classes, one day workshops to one-week sessions and anyone may participate, from beginners to advanced professionals.

Hooper Studios is located in a stunning natural setting and provides a community of support for focused creative energy and work. We are surrounded by forty acres of beautiful woodlands, fields and gardens and just below us the amazingly beautiful Kennebecasis river winds through islands and marshland, a paradise of birds and wildlife.

Workshops and classes take place in a large, sunny studio with good working areas, a small library of art books, and homemade cookies and tea to enjoy. The emphasis of all the instruction is on the process rather then the finished product, and students learn to explore the important connections between art and nature.

“whats on”

at the Gallery from Kathy!

“Three of the pieces I chose for this show were done in 1995 or so. In between larger paintings I have always worked on paper with a pen and acrylic washes and I have a large set of drawers in the studio filled with this kind of work. The bottom three drawers for some reason couldn’t open and I gave up trying, but before this show I gave them another yank and presto!! they opened, I had fun going through the work and picked these three to show, ” Rocks on a journey through red” ” 3 landscapes” and ” I will lead the way” Hope you will enjoy them.”
