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.

Two Saturdays, February 20 and 27 – 9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.

Students will discover or learn more about the basics of composition, colour mixing, line, form and expression. Inspired by Lawren Harris, Borduas, Klee, Kandinsky, Joan Mitchell and others, projects will include geometric abstraction, abstractions from nature, expressionism, emotional and conceptual work, and self-portrait.

To facilitate participation, our instructors have ordered materials kits through our partner DeSerres, which you can purchase on-line and have delivered to your door or arrange to pick up at a DeSerres location. Prices vary according to the selection of materials.


There is a minimum of 5 participants for each series. If this number 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.
