Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art!

To safely resume its activities during the pandemic, the Education and Wellness Department has decided to offer an abridged online program of our most popular workshops through the Zoom platform (link coming soon). Each class will be recorded and available throughout the entire week after the class if you happen to miss it.

Tuesday to Friday July 20-23, 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.

Discover or learn more about the basics of composition, colour mixing, line, form and expression. Draw inspiration from Lawren Harris, Borduas, Klee, Kandinsky, Joan Mitchell and others for projects that include geometric abstraction, abstractions from nature, expressionism, emotional and conceptual work, and self-portrait.

Instructor: Leona Heillig, artist, watercolourist and art educator

To simplify your participation, the instructors have prepared lists of supplies you will need for the class, along with the Omer DeSerres product codes. After you have ordered them on-line, they can be delivered to your home by DeSerres or you can pick them up at the store. The prices vary according to the products you select.

There is a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 8 participants for each series. If the minimum is not reached, the series will be cancelled.

For administrative purposes, we ask that you inform the instructor of a cancellation at least seven (7) days before the first class of the workshop. Cancellation policy: Cancellations made seven (7) business days or more before the first class of your registered workshop will be refunded in full, less a $50 administrative fee. No refunds will be granted for cancellations made less than seven (7) business days before the activity begins, unless the cancellation is made for unavoidable circumstances, in which case fees will be refunded in full.
