In The Studio

4Cats Richmond – Finally, the sign is up!

Finally! The sign is up! 2 years later we are officially back in our original home, 4Cats Richmond in Garden City! Unit 350- 9100 Blundell Road in Richmond, BC 🙂

Our 4Cats yellow brings a little sunshine to our grey winter BC skies.

Meet 4Cats Planner, Kyleigh, and her team, Chen, who you may know from our old location on Elmbridge and the newest member of our team, Reeann!

The team! Chen, Kyleigh and Reeann – ready for the kids!

It was a tough move. We had 4 days to get set up in this space. Our team was me, Darryl, 4Cats Planner, Kyleigh, 4Cats Hygge Guru, Adelle, my 17 year old son, Cash and his friend Danny and my 13 year old niece and her friend Lemon. When Ruby and Lemon weren’t laughing hysterically, storytelling, getting food, arguing or standing around talking, they actually were a great help! 😉

We all unpacked the uhaul, assembled furniture, ripped out the old carpet, put down a new floor, painted and cleaned a lot! And 4 Days later, we were all ready for our classes this Winter Session.

Awesome things about the classes:

  • 1.5 hour classes
  • students choose between 2 projects
  • Amazing projects! No extra stretching fees, we are working on pre-stretched canvas!
  • We incorporate fun, age appropriate art appreciation and art history into each project. We use professional art materials and tools, our lessons focus on technique as well as introducing art terminology.

Our classes will start off with your art instructors presenting 2 projects for students to choose between. Students will continue to work on this chosen project for the next few of classes (now 1.5 hrs long!) After projects are complete, they will have the opportunity to choose between 2 new projects.

This Winter we will be introducing students to high fire stoneware clay, brush and dip glazes, clay wheel, drawing with pencil and marker, blending and shading techniques, brush painting on 17×34 canvas and mixed media on 14×18 canvas.

So, so many people have popped in and happily said, “Yeah! You are back!” Well, we are excited to say that this is now our forever home. Such a great location!

Happy Creating!
