Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art! 

In-person classes are back and our instructors are eagerly awaiting being in the studios with you again. We are strictly following government guidelines to ensure the studio spaces are safe and are grateful for your collaboration in keeping them so. To simplify your participation, instructors have prepared lists of the supplies you will need, available from our partner DeSerres, along with their product codes. After you have ordered them online, they can be delivered straight to your home or picked up at one of the DeSerres stores. Prices vary according to the products selected.

Thursdays. March 17 to April 14, 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

This series of classes will introduce participants to the basics of drawing with soft pastels. The instructor will take a classic approach to enable you to hone your observational and analytical skills in rendering subjects in a relatively realistic way using this versatile medium. These classes will also provide a better understanding of the art of Nicolas Party, which will be on view at the Museum this winter. This contemporary artist frequently uses soft pastel in works replete with historical references. 

Instructor: André Pijet, artist, caricaturist and art educator
