Visual Arts Brampton is home to 2000 sq. ft. of studio space, unique for artists to gather for group dynamic creating. A small gallery area greets you where we display members' art. This space is also available at very reasonable rates for your own exhibition. Also ask about displaying at public viewed Artway Gallery located in Shoppers World.
We have two studio areas, the larger studio is where weekly open studio, portrait and life drawing sessions take place. Life drawing has a dedicated raised dais, fabric choices and spot lighting. We also have plenty of horse benches, stools and tables for your use. Just off the main area we have a room dedicated for brush and tool cleanup. We use overhead day lights all year long. We encourage participants to bring their own materials; however we do have a large supply of paper stock and other materials on hand. Our premises are also wheelchair accessible.
A secondary creative space is dedicated to youth art classes for the 9-12 and 12-18 year olds.
Resources: We have two libraries - books and objects. We have every art and image resource book under the sun plus a room FULL of still life objects from A to Z just waiting to be drawn. There is also access to computers with selection of creative software installed.
Conveniences: We have a small kitchen with sink, fridge, cupboards, microwave and toaster oven. Nearby locales are fast food restaurants, a grocery store and a dollar store. For additional convenience we are just across the street from Shoppers World mall and transit buses.
