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.

See the classes below.

You can gift a class to a friend or family member.

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.

Early Bird pricing is in effect until June 12th!
