An artist of British descent, Susanna Blunt was born in China but grew up in British Columbia, Canada. Starting to draw at the age of three, her decision was made at that time to become an artist. After years studying in B.C. and abroad, Susanna spent several years teaching at the University of British Columbia and other institutions while developing her career as a muralist, designer and portrait painter, eventually traveling widely in other countries for her portrait commissions. She has exhibited in both group and one-woman shows in England, France, Italy, Hong Kong, the United States and across Canada.

Impressions of Bolivia

Impressions of Bolivia
Wednesday September 26, 2018, 7–9 p.m.
Course #49452. Register Online.

Experience the picturesque charm of Boliva! Stretching from the majestic icebound peaks and bleak high-altitude deserts of the Andes to the rainforests and savannas of the Amazon basin, Bolivia offers an astonishing range of landscapes and climates. Despite lingering vestiges of three centuries of Spanish colonial rule, this European influence is a thin veneer overlying indigenous cultural traditions that stretch back long before the conquest.

Demystifying the Approach to Enjoying Art with Susanna Blunt

Sunday, September 30, 2–4 p.m.

Art is for everyone! It doesn’t need an intellectual approach, only an intelligent one. Join multimedia artist Susanna Blunt for an interactive exploration in learning how to look at and appreciate art and get beyond the intimidation factor. Bring a book or image of a piece of art you like, love, hate, or would like to know how to approach better.
