Membership

Being a member of the OSA gives you access to many exclusive perks; from regular updates on our wide range of courses, programs and events, to special discounts and opportunities. By becoming a member of the OSA you are also investing in your school and community – $5 from each membership goes towards our Outreach Program (Downtown Campus) or our ARTicipate Endowment Fund (Orleans Campus), and the balance goes directly into the general operations of this important not-for-profit charitable organization.

Take advantage of over 137 years of teaching excellence and dedication to arts and culture in our nation’s capital, and become a part of the OSA today.

Are you a graduate of the OSA Fine Arts Diploma, Portfolio Certificate or Arts Fundamentals Certificate Programs?

Membership is a great way to re-engage with the School and to forge new relationships in Ottawa’s arts community. We would love to welcome you back!

 

Your membership supports:

• Outreach Program (Downtown Campus) or

• ARTicipate Endowment Fund (Orleans Campus)

• Burseries

• The remaining balance goes directly into the general operations of this important not-for-profit charitable organization.
