The Pointe-Saint-Charles Art School offers a variety of classes for students of all levels and walks of life.

Our Approach

The Pointe-Saint-Charles Children’s Art Programme teaches children a variety of art techniques and encourages their creative self-expression through high calibre art instruction. Competent, qualified and talented art teachers offer your children a wonderful opportunity to learn and enjoy art in the beautiful studios and welcoming atmosphere of the Pointe-Saint-Charles Art School.

The discovery and invention that happen when children make art help them develop sensitivity and self-discipline. Confidence, competence and communication evolve together through creative self-expression on the one hand and the development of art skills on the other.

Let our skilled and imaginative instructors inspire your children and offer them the opportunity to benefit from the joys of art making!

After the completion of the workshops there will be a fashion show for all participants to perform and show off their creations — date to be confirmed. The Wearable Art Workshop series strives to encourage artistic play and exploration through the experimentation of materials in relation to the body. Participants will have the opportunity to explore a unique art medium and come together to express a common interest in visual art and fashion, all while deepening their artistic and creative connection with themselves.

Week 1: Performing Wearable Accessories

The first week of workshops in the Wearable Art series will introduce participants to the creation of wearable accessories in performance art, briefly covering some history of wearable art for inspiration, as well as DIY techniques for wearables. Participants will create wearable pieces that represent an alternative version of themselves through the exploration of found materials and the skills they learn through the workshop.

Week 2: The Art of Fashion

The second week of workshops in the Wearable Art series will involve the creation of a wearable garment where participants will have the opportunity to create a DIY mannequin, explore the art of manipulating fabric, and learn techniques for painting with acrylics on fabric before creating their final wearable art designs. Participants will also learn basic sewing techniques that will enrich their final wearable designs.
