Help your child develop their creativity, confidence, and social skills in our inclusive studio setting. We encourage creative learners from any skill level to join our classes.
Developed and approved by our team of Ontario Certified Teachers, our visual arts curriculum is designed to enhance the art classes your child is already taking in school - we take your child’s creative learning to a whole new level!
Enroll your child in our weekly classes and they will learn a vast variety of art making techniques in various medium. Your child will be taught techniques in the monthly subject focus and produce a final project culminating all their learning for the month. We emphasize the importance of progress and growth in our classes - the artistic journey is just as important as the finished product.
Our visual arts curriculum and visual art projects change every year, so no two years are the same!
Many of our students use their experience from our classes to pursue further arts education at art specializing high schools, such as Mayfield Secondary School, Cawthra Park Secondary School, or St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School. We take great pride in the accomplishments of our students.

- Observation Skills
How do you make your artwork more realistic? Our instructors teach students to train their eye to acutely study the object they are drawing to ensure high accuracy.
- Language Development
Yes, art is fun! So what? Talking about art is an opportunity for your child to learn new descriptive words to interpret, criticize, and make decisions about their artwork and the world around them.
- Risk Taking, Resilience, Self Confidence
As your child creates an artwork, they take several creative risks. Through this process, your child will learn to try new things, make mistakes, and overcome challenges. In an art environment, there are no right or wrong answers. Even shy children find friends to socialize with in our friendly, positive atmosphere.
