The Ottawa School of Art offers school groups a unique program of hands-on, well-structured training in the fine art tradition of drawing, painting, printmaking, photography (digital or darkroom experience) sculpture or ceramics. Students will be introduced to one of these mediums in, typically, a 3 hour workshop with a professional artist/instructor. Instruction will be aimed at all skill levels. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the medium and the opportunity to express their own ideas.
Teachers may request particular themes to coordinate with their curriculum. Any artwork produced by the students can be taken home.
Groups of 16 or more require 2 instructors. Materials are provided, some additional costs may apply. Half day and full day workshops are available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for rates.
