Classes & Workshops

Art at Hooper Studios 

A day of “Soul Nourishment” through pen, art, intuition, energy wellness with Brenda Lee Wright & Sue Hooper, Saturday, 9:30 to 4:00   September 26  $89. Lunch and art materials included. Please bring a journal.

“We will weave energy wellness into our day together including learning  a short daily energy routine (based on the work  of Donna Eden)  that can increase your vitality, and enhance your  health and your state of mind.  Following the morning with Brenda, where she will lead you into elements of soul beauty and belonging through writing, you will enjoy a light lunch with homemade soup and salad. To uncover your creativity you need time with yourself to “see” differently”, explore and nurture your creative consciousness. Based  on discoveries made during the writing time with Brenda, Sue will  lead you into exploring color and emotions using acrylic paint and watercolor paper.”

Brenda Lee Wright is an adult educator and a counselling therapist, who has Master of Education degrees in Counselling and Adult Education. While in France, she learned from Canadian authors Marianne Ackerman and Isabel Huggan. She is also a certified “Writing Out Loud” instructor.  Brenda lives on the Kingston Peninsula and is passionate about writing and the art of well-being.

Our Fall Schedule is now  posted 

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.

I Live with Art, Art Rentals and Sales welcomes Saint John artist Brian Comeau. My photographic style varies from a pure documentary approach to a more experimental style incorporating a variety of techniques such as; silhouettes, reflections, long and multiple exposures. When I’m outside shooting I’m not just trying to photograph a beautiful place or animal, I’m also looking for a new way to make the common look uncommon.

I Live with Art, Art Rentals & Sales is a new, locally owned and operated business that represents local artists and whose goal is to support and promote them through offering their work for rent or purchase. Visit to see the Artist Gallery and drop by Hooper Studios Gallery to see, first hand, many works represented on the site.
