Our not-for-profit educational art programs are fun and engaging for children who are 5 to 13 years of age, who do not attend daytime school regularly.  

  • Programs are 1.5 hours long and are led by experienced professional artist instructors.
  • Parents are encouraged to stay and assist if their children are under 7 years of age or younger.

We have implemented comprehensive safety protocols to protect students and staff so that they can attend and safely enjoy our field trips. Learn more about our safety protocols here.

Safety protocols in place include:

  • Those experiencing symptoms are required to stay home (A make-up class or equivalent supplies and instructions will be provided for students who miss a class due to illness)
  • Increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces
  • Individual supplies for each student
  • Hand sanitizer available in class
  • Gloves available in class
  • Socially distanced workspaces and social distancing of 2 metres will be promoted when moving about the classroom/studio/ gallery

Please note, there may be an occasion where we are unable to safely offer regular classes consistently due to the unpredictability of COVID-19. This could result in classes being interrupted, canceled, or moved to online, depending on the program.
