Now is the perfect time to START THINKING ART

Treat yourself or someone you love to art classes and summer camps at the MacLaren. What makes our programmes here so special? We have a beautiful, sunlit studio and all of our art classes and camps are led by regional artists. We have options for all ages (children, youth, adults) and all levels of experience.

Join Us This Spring and Summer at the Gallery!

Now is the perfect time to start booking spring classes and summer camps! This spring, children ages 6 to 9 will be inspired by the bright colours, textures and shapes of their region in Painting: Vibrant Vistas. In Drawing in Colour, youth ages 10 to 13 will try their hand at rendering in colour using different mark-making tools. This summer, the MacLaren is excited to offer thirteen half-day and full-day art camps for ages 6 to 13 years old. Register now!

Adults Can Get Creative Too!

Register now for master classes Painting: Methods and Meaning with Andy Fabo and Drawing and Animation with Jeff Nye.
