Do you want to try your hand at drawing, painting or mixed media? Or are you an experienced artist looking to hone your skills? With our wide variety of fine art classes offered by experienced and talented teachers, you’re sure to find something to fit your skill level and interests.
Our fibre arts classes for children introduce them to weaving, felting and more. Kids can create their own one-of-a-kind treasures and gain hands-on experience while developing fine motor skills, colour sense and an understanding of how textiles are created.
In our adult fibre arts classes, students develop skills in weaving, spinning and other textile arts. Our well-equipped fibre studio features a variety of table and floor looms, as well as spinning wheels. Registered students can sign-up for studio time to practice using our looms and/or spinning wheels. Registered students can borrow equipment for the session by completing a loan agreement and paying an equipment deposit.
Students who borrow equipment that will be taken out of the building will be required to sign a contract and pay a refundable deposit of $50 on small equipment and $100 on large equipment. A non-refundable fee of $5 will be charged per session to help cover the cost of repairs and maintenance of loaned equipment.
Kids love getting their hands messy in our handbuilding classes, and teens and adults can develop and hone their skills in handbuilding and wheel throwing.
Place des Arts is equipped with a mid-fire stoneware facility consisting of three spaces: the manufacturing area, the glazing area and the kiln room. Three electric kilns of varying sizes and one gas kiln offer the option of both oxidation and reduction firing. Open studio time is included for registered adult students.
Clay must be purchased from Place des Arts, and a supply list is available at the registration desk. Open studio time is included for students registered in pottery classes.
