Born and raised in Canada, Bruce Edwards has spent much of his time after completing art school travelling worldwide. Along the way Bruce has worked on murals and art instruction in a variety of places including: Togo, West Africa, Oglala Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, Homer, Alaska, Tucson, Arizona to name but a few! Bruce will be teaching both drawing and painting focusing on the creatures of our local forest. At the end of the classes a temporary mural will be constructed and on display at the Arts Centre. At the end of the week each child will have a 12 x 14 canvas of their artistic creation to take home.
