About WAG Studio

WAG Studio is one of Canada’s oldest gallery-run art-making programs. We believe art education is valuable to individuals at any age. Our programs are taught by practicing artists who share their enthusiasm, insight, and skills in a fun, friendly setting.

Courses for Adults

WAG Studio offers many ways to explore your creativity with beginner and intermediate courses in a variety of media. Unless otherwise indicated, adults provide their own tools and supplies for classes. Students in beginner courses will be given materials for the first class, while those in intermediate courses should bring their own selection. Supply lists are handed out on the first day of class. For special workshops, materials are generally included in the class cost.

Courses for Kids & Teens

Child and teen classes are structured to accommodate the abilities of different age levels. These fun-filled classes develop skills in various media, sparking creativity and imagination. Artist-instructors are paired with classes based on experience and area of specialization.

Workshops

Choose from an exciting variety of creative workshops – from MakerLabs and ClayMakers to our signature Paint Parties.

Our Interim Location

All art classes are currently offered on the Gallery’s lower level. Public access is down the ramp of the WAG building on Colony St. This interim location is in place as we work to develop the Inuit Art Centre – a new building that will be connected to the Gallery on all levels. The Centre will expand art education with larger and more versatile spaces, providing a breathtaking new home for art classes.
