Mastering Your Own Practice

Mastering Your Own Practice - In Person

This class is for students with an existing art practice. The best way to create successful abstract art is to focus on the process. This is a self-paced course whereby you establish your own mission statement and set upon your journey in an exciting and fun way to reach your goals, whilst, at the same time experimenting and exploring your materials and the various techniques you’ve learned along the way.

One-on-one coaching and guidance from the instructor, as well as interactive discussions will take place throughout in a comfortable and safe environment for all participants. A critique at the end of each lesson is crucial and everyone is encouraged to participate. As we move forward into this new post-pandemic world, we all look forward to reinventing ourselves once again.

About the Instructor

Suzanne Metz was born in South Africa and received her BA Fine Arts (Honours) Degree in 1980 from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. Suzanne has been practicing as a professional artist for over 30 years and exhibits and sells her work both locally and internationally. Her work incorporates media mixed, acrylic paint as well as spray paint and is focused primarily on the purity of non-objective art.  There are elements of graffiti, text and calligraphy interwoven into either neutral palettes or opposing vibrant colour schemes. By excavating layers upon layers in her work, Suzanne adds depth and meaning to her vibrant works. High energized mark making contrast with quiet areas of calm, and her playfulness and experimentation exudes the joyful aspect of her process and journey.

“Painting is my passion, and it inhabits my heart and soul so each piece I create is a part of who I am.”

    What is the Progam Cancellation Policy?

    Unless otherwise specified by a program director or within any other documentation, the following cancellation policy and JCC Credit timetable applies to all Prosserman JCC programs:

    For Programs that Meet Fewer Than 3 Times

    Due to the costs and booking commitments associated with short-term programs, we regret that we cannot offer any JCC Credit for programs, classes, or events that meet fewer than three times per programming season. Additionally, The Prosserman JCC cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for programs missed as a result of personal scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control. If you are unable to attend a program in this category, we encourage you to consider your registration fee a form of support for the Prosserman JCC, helping to sustain wonderful programs.

    For Programs that Meet 3+ Times

    You may receive JCC Credit for withdrawal from a program when your cancellation request conforms to the timetable outlined below. Please note there is a $15 processing fee for all transfers and cancellations.

    - Full JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a Prosserman JCC program when a written request is received at least one week before the date of the first class.

    - 50% JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a JCC program when a written request is received before the second class.

    - After the second class, JCC Credit cannot be granted. (However, you may transfer from one class to another of equal or lesser value if there is space available and with the program director's approval.)

    - All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to: Prosserman JCC 9600 Bathurst Street, Vaughan Ontario, L6A 3Z8, Attn: Registration; or by e-mail to [email protected] Please allow three to four weeks for processing of your cancellation request.

    *All JCC programs and events are subject to change or cancellation. However, in the event that the JCC must cancel its own program, refunds will be issued. The policy articulated here applies to Prosserman JCC only, and does not apply to Centre Camp, Prosserman JCC daycare and preschool or Prosserman JCC Fitness and Health.

    What is required to receive the Member Discount on Programs?

    In order to receive the member discount on programs, the Prosserman JCC requires that participants be active members at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the registered program(s).

    Please be advised that the Prosserman JCC operates on a JCC Credit only policy and does not issue any refunds unless otherwise advised and approved by a program director.

    JCC Credit applied to your JCC account can be redeemed for any program at the JCC (not including Centre Camp and Prosserman JCC daycare and preschool), can be used by any family member on your account, and carries no expiration date.

    When does Program Registration close?

    Registration for Prosserman JCC programs closes one week before the start date of a course. For some classes we accept registrations until the program has reached 50% of its classes.

    We recommend registering as early as possible, as many programs have limited space, and other programs depend upon a certain enrollment number to ensure they will run. Your place in a program can only be guaranteed when accompanied by payment.
