New WAG Studio, New Semester

Housed on the Penthouse Level of the Gallery, the new WAG Studio is designed by Qaumajuq architect Michael Maltzan.

The larger and more versatile spaces provide a breathtaking home for art classes, residencies, and community programming that connects North and South. Watch this video for a look!

WAG Studio programs are taught by practicing artists who share their enthusiasm, insight, and skills in a fun, friendly setting. Since the inauguration of WAG Studio 85 years ago, artists Tony Tascona, Jordan Van Sewell, and many more have taught the joys of art to Manitobans. And artists like Kent Monkman, Kenneth Lavallee, and Wanda Koop all attended youth classes at WAG Studio!

Winter registration is now open, so you can try your hand at classes like Drawing & Painting, Mixed Media, Digital Drawing, Photography, and more, available for kids, teens, and adults.

Further supporting learning at WAG-Qaumajuq, a renewed partnership with the Manitoba Department of Education was recently announced, designed to ensure that every student has the opportunity to become artistically literate, to experience art-making, and to think critically and creatively.

Our government is proud to partner with the WAG-Qaumajuq to create programming for Manitoba students. This collaboration will provide students the opportunity to explore art, connect cultures and inspire their own creativity. It will also support visual art and cultural studies teachers in professional development. — Hon. Cliff Cullen, Minister of Education, Province of Manitoba

A major focus of the Memorandum of Understanding is Indigenous programming developed with the leadership of Indigenous instructors, staff, and advisors. The partnership encourages consultation to create links between WAG-Qaumajuq programming and Manitoba curriculum, empowering students through in person and distance learning.

The WAG is thrilled to renew our partnership with the Manitoba Department of Education during the inaugural year of Qaumajuq, the Inuit art centre. This agreement benefits Manitoba youth by sharing resources and expertise aimed at enriching the experience of learning through art. — Dr. Stephen Borys, Director & CEO, WAG-Qaumajuq
