Art for Adults
This class caters to adults who relish intellectual and creative activities at their leisure. This course aims to stimulate one’s creativity and help them find joy and satisfaction in art-making. Through intuitive, artistic experiments and disciplined instruction, the students will learn to express themselves through the elusive means of visual language.
Throughout the course’s duration, the students will gain fundamental knowledge of the practical and theoretical aspects of multiple artistic mediums; learn about different art styles, both historical and contemporary; and gradually develop a unique taste in aesthetics and an appreciation for high cultures.
Each season of the class will have its unique theme, within which we will be exploring a multitude of media, subject matters, and thematically appropriate techniques. Majorities of supplies will be provided by the instructor, but students are more than welcome to purchase additional supplies according to the “suggested supply list” provided also by the instructor.
Instructor: Qiming “Sezava” Sun, qimingsunart.com
Art for Children
Class will be geared towards fun, imaginative crafts that we can take home. We will be exploring all sorts of mediums to create, such as beans, yarn, paints, and nature! We will also dip our toes into learning about the great artists of the past and present.
Instructor: Kiera Stevenson
This is for adults age 18+. Bring your own racquet! These sessions will be capped at 20 registrants per day.
¡Hola! My name is Bessie Aida Pino and I’ve been teaching Spanish at VVCA for almost 20 years! I am very eager to share once again my knowledge and experience of over 30 years teaching Spanish to students of all ages and levels in Saskatoon.
Beginners – Come learn basic Spanish greetings, alphabet numbers, colors, key question words, days of the week, months of the year, uses of verb to be and everyday useful sentences. You will be introduced to speaking Spanish using both formal and informal ways of addressing people.
Intermediate / Advance – Knowing the basics gives you a chance to practice with other students and learn about the most common verbs in the present, past and future forms. Be ready to talk and learn more about not only the language but also the culture of different Spanish speaking countries.
• Beginner TaeKwon-Do (ages 4-6)
30 minute class twice a week. Fun activity class for young children. Basic skills are taught along with a variety of movement, balance and coordination activities.
• Beginner TaeKwon-Do (ages 7-adult)
45 minute class twice a week. Introduction to TaeKwon-Do. Basic techniques of the beginner levels are learned in this fun, active class. Opportunity for belt advancement is available but not required for this class.
• Intermediate TaeKwon-Do (ages 8-adult)
1.25 hr class twice a week. Yellow belt level and up. This class builds upon the beginner class and is for participants who wish to further their progression in the belt levels.
• Advanced TaeKwon-Do (ages 10-adult)
2.25 hr min class twice a week. Blue belt and up. This class is for students working through the blue to black belt levels.
Children participating in the ages 4-6 beginner classes must be accompanied by an adult! Anyone under the age of twelve in the 7+ beginner class should also have a parent present. Participants waiting for their class are asked to please wait in the foyer until the class starts. Coming into the gym or MPR before then or running up and down the hallway disrupts the class and is not fair for the participants. Please be considerate!
Yoga – Multi-level with Miranda
Yoga has been my saviour throughout these stressful times. It will include gently energizing supported and standing poses with minimal props and a strong focus on centring, breathing, and relaxation.

We must once again stress the importance of safety before and after programming. It is imperative that parents accompany their children to and from their registered programs. If children arrive early they MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian until the class begins. Unexpected class cancellations could leave children stranded if they are simply dropped off. Children must be picked up promptly after class. Instructors are responsible for teaching participants DURING class only.
The instuctors have the right to tell anyone who is disrupting the class to leave!
It is a privilege for VVCA to run programs out of Brunskill School! Please abide by the rules and treat the school with respect! If you see a problem you can contact me or the janitor.
Remember if there are any questions, concerns or anything you can contact Barb Giles by email at email@example.com.
