ART CLASSES

Algonquin Art Centre offers art classes throughout July and August on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and the occasional Saturday. These are instructed by artists from the community and often taught by the lakeside. Classes are 1.5 hours in length and are available in either the morning or the afternoon.

Many of our classes are designed for both adults and children — making it an ideal family activity. We also have classes that are only for adults. Our classes are for all ranges of ability levels. They are perfect for children just beginning to explore art and also suitable for accomplished artists who wish to hone their skills.

To see a Calendar for our Summer Art Class, please visit our home page

Note: Space is limited so pre-registration is encouraged to reserve your place in class. Call the Algonquin Art Centre at 705-633-5555 or drop in any time.
