Children & Teen General Interest

Multimedia classes are offered for children aged 4 to 10 years. Throughout the three terms, students produce a wide variety of work in all disciplines: drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, and sculpture, including clay. These classes give students the opportunity to use materials and processes that are not available in the home or school setting. Individual lessons focus on different elements of art: colour, line, form, perspective, composition, etc.

Most courses are organized around a theme and include a tour of the collection at the National Gallery of Canada. Classes are two hours long and tuition fees include all materials.

The Ottawa School of Art also offers classes for older children between 10 and 12 years old as well as teens. These classes encourage students to focus their attention and develop patience using a narrower range of techniques while having fun.
